Sneakerheads are psyched for the return of the Air Jordan IV in 2012, but before the OG Cements and Military Blues hit retailers next year, there’s a brand new Four in store for late ’11. The Air Jordan IV Doernbecher is part of the eighth collaboration between Nike and the Portland children’s hospital whose young artists came up with the designs for these ‘DB’ edition drops. Jordan Brand gets represented with this otherworldly take on a familiar design, one whose Spike Lee insignias mixed with a melange of laser cut arrows paired with a blacklit colorway has us picturing an alternate universe where MJ was the greatest breakdancer of all time. Add all this together with a Superman crest so real it must’ve been licensed from DC Comics, and you’ve got one of the most bizarre Air Jordan designs ever released; are you brave enough to wear them? Click through to see more angles and stick with Sneaker News for updates on these and all the Nike x Doernbecher Freestyle VIIIrelease dates. via Air-Randy
Air Jordan IV Doernbecher GS
These are amazing :] I love these and plan on buying for my collection. I genuinely like these and will cop if I can get them for retail.
Gross...you're right whoever designed doernbecher3s shouldve designed these.. I was SO HYPE about this release and these just Suck...point blank
I like these but do I like them more than the cements or the military's or the breds that are coming out next year? NO!! So it's retail or nothing for me and the chances of that happening in Australia are slim to none.
man if the the midsole was the same blue as the netting these would be nice with the same color laces....idk 4s are my #1 if i get for retail somehow i would buy but not anything over...
not better than the DB iii's, but honestly these are tough. I love how the blue just pops out on the shoe. Def coppin.
Wow easy pass...They had to mess up the 4's smh JB should have gave this shoe to the kid that designed the 3's
It's funny how dudes now saying "Ima copp cuz it's for a good cause" what about all the other charity out in the world that you never donated to that are made "for a good cause" lol just be yourself and say you coppin cuz you like em
U guys sound silly. When I get em they'll be on ice till the summer. It takes someone famous for u cornballs to like em. Not me. I buy and where what I like. No hype....losers
Great cause and all but I would not wear these if you gave them to me. They look like something my 1 yr old son would wear... and I am not sure I would even buy them for that!.. Sorry kid
even tho we all can see dat da shoes are jus flat out hideous, ima cop them cuz i support da organization & da money goes to a VERY good cuz... but u wont see these on my feet lol
I really don't get these. it seems they're going for the whole superman thing but then they have the neon non-superman colors. drop the superman logo and get rid of the arrows and they'd be nice. right now they aren't supermanish at all other than the logo. I can see a lot of people wearing these though.
Yea I'm sure! That was a good one! Hey, how much you wanna bet you look like a fake ass Corey Booker!?!?! Lmao
