Jordan Brand + Jordan Carranza Design AJ1 FlyEase

In July 2021, the Jordan Brand was connected with 13-year-old Jordan Carranza through Make-A-Wish®. Carranza, who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, had a wish to design a shoe that broke down barriers. He selected the Air Jordan 1 Hi FlyEase.

When Carranza joined the call with Jordan Brand designers in late July, he came prepared with a sketch and a vision.

“What inspired me to make this shoe is that Nike has always been my favorite brand, and I have always wanted to make a shoe. The reason I made a handicap style is that it shows me that just because you’re disabled doesn’t mean that your dream can’t come true,” said Carranza.

Once Jordan Brand heard Carranza’s vision, we knew his story needed to be elevated. We decided to take a route that we normally reserve for professional athletes, a PE watch.

Just like our professional athletes, Carranza is a premier member of our Jordan Brand Family. Our commitment to purpose and the values on which our brand was built should be accessible to all – regardless of ability.
