Player exclusives are typically reserved for brand athletes, celebrities and other folks that have iconic stature, but Jordan Brand has shaken things up for a brief second and teamed up with the Make-A-Wish® Foundation to create a special moment for 13-year old Jordan Carranza. The patient — who has been battling a a severe and progressive muscle-wasting disease titled Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) — has always had dreams of designing his own shoe, and thanks to Jordan Brand, his vision has finally been brought to life through a special Air Jordan 1 High FlyEase PE.

Design-wise, Carranza leans on a classic royal blue, white and black palette that is strongly reminiscent of previous Air Jordan 1 collaborations with fragment design. In order to make the kicks more personal to him, the young designer embellishes the tongues with his initials, adds wheelchair icons to lateral heel sections and the outsoles and remixes the Jumpman’s classic ball-and-wings logos with his initials in the middle. The fact that his first name is Jordan certainly aligns perfectly with the whole Air Jordan mantra here as well. Moreover, the interiors are lined with satin royal blue and come adorned with all-over wheelchair icon graphics. The insoles also bring in extra flair here as they spell out the phrase ““Just because your disabled doesn’t mean that your dream can’t come true.”

Check out a closer look here above, and note that this Jordan Carranza Air Jordan 1 FlyEase PE will never be released to the public.

In other news, the Air Jordan 1 Acclimate has been unveiled in a clean white and gray colorway.
