Jordan 1 Doernbecher 2008

This year, 16-year-old Tony Taylor Jr. aka Mr. Boober, a Nephrotic Syndrome and a kidney transplant survivor, got the chance to design his very own Air Jordan 1 sneaker. Last year a 16-year-old design some Jordan 2. Mr. Boober's design is 1 of 4 that will release on November 14th.

The black/blue color scheme represents his success with the battle against kidney disease, while the contrasting yellow and number 15 honor his favorite player, Carmelo Anthony. Below the number 15 is the date he received his kidney transplant and below that are four stars which represent his high school’s mascot, the Generals. The palm trees along the midsole resemble the Bahamas.
