This year’s Air Jordan entry into the Doernbecher line appears to be a particularly heart wrenching one. Shown is the Air Jordan V “Doernbecher”, a sneaker whose design was concocted by Isaac Wayne Arzate, who tragically lost the battle with his affliction. The inside sports his initials along with some personal dates, a set reflecting his unfortunately short time on this Earth. The upper sports a group of words that isn’t quite decipherable at this point, along with a black based colorway and a #9 hit towards the back end. Continue reading for a preview of the Air Jordan V “Doernbecher” and stay tuned for the likely November, 2013 release of Isaac’s creation.

All the billions that JB has, they should & could do a lot more than release another shoe that will be overpriced and scarcely available. You want to raise a lot of money for cancer or Doernbecher hospital or any good cause? Release quality products to retail in adequate quantities. Scheisters.

@KWAPT yes thats sounds all nice but reality is nike is giving all prceeds to the foundation. so they arent making anymoney from these release at all. so if they made a large ammount and used the sme high quality materials... theyd go bankrupt or be in debt

Damn only 13 thats too young sadly these are going to be bought for the wrong reasons hypebeasts going to get them so they can flex on instagram and resellers so they can get a lot of money instead of spending it on bullshit they can fund disease research so we can never get a doernbecher shoe ever again

gotta get these for the simple fact that my first name is incorporated into the shoe and also for ISSAC TO ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED!

The words on the shoe are from a poem Issac Arzate wrote the day before he died.

I would give my soul to the sports gods to play forever.

I don't care I was made for sports.

I am naturally gifted.

I was born to die for sports.

Anyone that buys this shoe to profit from reselling it, is a piece of shit. Plus anything bad that happens to you, you deserve it. Remember this comment. R.I.P ISAAC. May God welcome you with open arms.

extremely sad that some child lost their life, even more is the FACT that the DB's always fall into the hands of these fucn hypebeats and resellers.. way to go JB. way to spoil a great effort and idea put forth from a dying child, only to release the db's in limited quantities and allowing these fucn bums to reap the benefits..

When the DB 9's released I propositioned resellers with a great opportunity. I was willing to pay their asking price of $600 plus an extra $50, but they would only receive $200 in cash. I would donate the remaining $450 to the DB foundation in their name. Once the aggreement was met they could ship my shoes. A great tax write off and they would help a kid get treatment, however,t no one took the offer. I just find it sad that these resellers are willing to profit off the misfortune of others. Its only one shoe a year. They resell all the other releases for massive profit but they are too greedy to human. Nike is just as bad. They could easily make more pairs of these and/or donate more proceeds but they're using the foundation in a shitty way. The only good thing from these releases is the awareness about the foundations work which would otherwise go unnoticed.

@jhoward Nike donates millions to DB. Phil Knight is on the board and helped build the children's wing. Don't think this is the only way they give back. Check out Doernbechers website for more info. This is more about awareness to the program and letting some very special kids get a moment to shine. The effort you tried to make is great - it is too bad that most people would profit off this and only hype the shoe vs. the story.

@Jared45 @jhoward I'm fully aware of Nike's donations, I just think the DB releases are a prime opportunity and effortless way for Nike to create more awareness for the foundation by selling more pairs. Why make them limited when they know the public is interested and would love to have them. Sell more, donate more.

Oh hell ya, my faith in 5s is restored. Sick shoe for a good cause.

Just a heads up... don't trust SoleSeriouss.com for preorders.

Was just refunded on my order a week after the release. Best to go with a reputable seller and not them.
