Tag Archives: Air Jordan Doernbecher V Isaac Arzate


7 Sep


The newest installment to the Air Jordan “Doernbecher” collection comes with a somber feeling after the lost of the shoes inspiration Isaac Arzate. He was a young man who suffered a heart attack at basketball practice and was sent to the OHSU Doernbecher Childrens Hospital. He overcame open heart surgery and began designing the Air Jordan V shoe, but unfortunately this past April he suffered a second heart attack that was fatal. Isaac’s family worked to finish the final design that incorporates his jersey number, his birth and death dates, as well as pieces of a poem that he wrote the day before he passed away. I hope that sneaker collectors and shoe enthusiast worldwide use this shoe as inspiration and not for profit. The Jordans are set to release on September 14th, 2013.
