The continuing saga of the Air Jordan Doernbecher continues tomorrow as the entire Doernbecher Freestyle IX goes up for sale to the public. Since its first installment in 2007, the Air Jordan Doernbecher has risen to incredible heights in popularity, rivaling some of the most praised Air Jordan originals as the most coveted releases of all time, demanding insanely high dollars in the re-sale market due to its limited units and distinct colorways. Tonight, Sneaker News presents a detailed gallery of the Air Jordan 9 Retro DB, which features a luxurious composition of colors and heartfelt details selected by Doernbecher Hospital patient and designer Oswaldo Jimenez.
Air Jordan 9 Retro DB
Exclusive release to: Nikestore, NikeTown, and 21 Mercer
Just wondering exactly how limited are these? The DB 4 was supposedly super limited & next thing you know it seems like everybody has on a pair.. I was out in Vegas a few months ago & was told that the DB 4 was a common shoe out there... They said anybody that wanted a pair got a pair... SMH.. if that's the case, why the crazy re-sale prices?
EXCLUSIVE DOPE BLACK & GOLD GEAR
@JFresh_136 Yes they did & of course they sold out
they are only release at House of hoops or niki town thats why if u live near a nike town ur gona get a pair @Sneakerhead2320
@DreamChaser u get them
@QKicks @Sneakerhead2320 of DB9's only or 1,000 including the entire DB line? If that's the case then How limited are they... really? I'm sure 21 Mercer had a good stock too & I know they weren't the only 2 stores in NYC who had them..
Not to mention Nike town Chicago I'm sure had plenty too.. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining... I'm just trying to understand the fact that all these people on twitter are complaining they couldn't cop a pair but yet in a few weeks it seems like they'll be popping up everywhere. Is it purely resellers of is this shoe that limited?
@rauladauto I understand that, but I am sure each store did not have 300-400 pairs of DB 9's in stock. .
@wewdw hell to the no tried online i clicked the link rite when it went up and then it said all pairs are held. O well geting the mangos instead.
@Sneakerhead2320 @QKicks No way Niketown NYC had 1000 pair and I would doubt based on previous years that they had 100 pair of every style of DB, but could be for NYC this year. Also, doubtful in a few weeks they are popping up everywhere or have in the past unless on Ebay or counterfeit....DB's, unless you are lucky enough to cop them online when they drop or are close to a Nike town store, or among the hardest to cop in my experience....I still got the ones and the twos new in box but could not get the 3s or the 4s.
@Sneakerhead2320 @QKicks I feel fa ya homie.. I live in NYC so due to our population we are alwayz gonna get more quantities then other cities. And dats how distribution are set. Bigger cities get more & small cities & towns like urs get a handful, which isn't fair but is wat it is... and when u look on eBay, the locations on majority of kicks are frum the states of new York, California, Texas & Florida... and the only time they should raffle shoes off is when they are exclusive & limited... theirs no reason to raffle off bred 4s or pink foams. Cuz I think their fixed to begin with.. or u get a lot of dudes to get like 10 or more people to drop they name in da box to increase their chances. So if u put ur name in wit dude dat had 20 people drop in wit urs, then ur not gonna be able to cop. And dat twitter is jus bullshit & I think that's more rigged then those raffles As fa those other exclusive kicks, I know a couple spots that have 10 or more pair of brand new galaxy foams & Yeezys right now when most people thought process is if they were really that limited then why do we see new pair poppin up here & their. So how exclusive are they?... So its bullshit all around & all we can do is try to deal wit it best we can
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite @Sneakerhead2320 @QKicks Honestly, I live in a smaller town about 300,000 people, Closest Nike store is 4hrs, then 8hrs, There are 2 Nike outlets, but they are both 2.5 hrs from me, 1 to the north& 1 to the south.., My town only has 1 mall with 1 footlocker, 1 footaction, 1 champs, 1 finishline... There are no boutique shoe stores here either..
Everything is a raffle here, they even raffled Bred 4's here, SMH.. so basically it's Hype beast central here... We get kicks but in super small quantities.. Our footaction was the only store here to get Pink foams & only 10 pair & they raffled them too...
I've only seen 1 person with DB3's , 1 person with DB4's, , 1 person with Galaxy foams & nobody with Yeezy 2's.. Basically I have no outlet for exclusive heat locally, only the internet.. I understand where I live has alot to do with it.. But then I see all the complaining on twitter & I think maybe these kicks are that limited..
@Sneakerhead2320 @QKicks da niketown where I grabbed mine, my guy said they had over 100 of da 9s in stock... so I'm sure most niketowns in da big cities had da same quantities... so they are limited to an extent but how many times do u see a brand new pair of galaxy foams, or Yeezy 2s or even db 4s & 3s... so initially quantiles are low but wks later u see brand new pairs poppin up everywhere...
