It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Michael Jordan dunking on you and winning championships. Michael Jordan’s superhuman feats on the court are well represented by this year’s Air Jordan IV ‘Doernbecher’, which serves as the unofficial ‘kick-off’ to the looming Air Jordan IV Retro releases for 2012. The Air Jordan IV DB ‘Superman’ features a number of playful colors and details, like the Superman chest logo on the tongue, a comic-book like graphic seen through the translucent outsoles, neon green and blue tones, and most notably, a new ‘Mars Blackmon’ silhouette on the heel, which matches that of Isaiah, the talented young boy who was chosen to design the Air Jordan IV. The entire Nike x Doernbecher Freestyle VIII will be unveiled on October 8th, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates and release information for this charity-driven capsule of sneakers, and let us know what you think of Isaiah’s design. via MarqueeSole.
