Kirsten Brown describes herself as a survivor, which she expressed with a bold SRVVR graphic on the upper of her WMNS Air Max 97. On the outsole of one shoe, a green ribbon stands for heart transplant awareness. On the other, a red ribbon represents stroke awareness. She also threw in accents of her favorite color, lavender. “I wanted to educate people about my condition, but I also wanted to make a really cool shoe,” she explains. Although she’s still in recovery, this witty, well-spoken girl is enjoying getting back to regular teen life— going to the movies with friends, eating pizza, and rooting for her little brother Charles at his baseball games. As for her perpetually positive attitude, she says the secret is simple: ”Make other people happy.”
