The eighth installment of Nike’s partnership with the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital was unveiled in early October; six children were selected to design six different Nike footwear models – one of which was the Air Jordan IV Retro. Chosen for this marquee project was 11-year-old Isaiah Scott, who transferred his ‘Superman’ persona onto the design of the Air Jordan IV. This video goes in detail behind Isaiah’s design, which is also inspired by Nate Robinson’s insane dunk over Dwight Howard during the 2009 NBA Dunk Contest. The Air Jordan IV Doernbecher is set to release this Saturday, November 5th, at select Jordan Brand retailers, so continue reading for the full video to go in detail behind Isaiah’s design inspiration.

Isaiah Scott is like any other 11-year-old kid, but to call him ordinary wouldn’t be so accurate. Like other boys his age, he likes sports, videgames, watching TV, and so forth, but unlike them, he’s spent a good amount of time the Doerbecher Children’s Hopsital. In this latest viewing of the Air Jordan 4 DB, Jordan Brand places a worthy spotlight on the 11-year-old boy and the inspiration of his design; it was actually Isaiah’s mother that came up with the Superman notation, because Isaiah would be ‘strong as steel’ when he received his treatments – zero complaints, taking it like a champ. Thus, his inner Superman was born, and even Warner Brothers, who owns the rights to the famous ‘S’ logo, gave Jordan Brand full permission to utilize the iconic emblem as part of the commemorative release. We know you’ve got an S on your chest, Isaiah! Check out the new detailed angles of the Air Jordan 4 DB below, and be sure to cop a pair when it officially releases this Saturday.
