Eminem has had more than a few collabs with Nike and Jordan over the years, including an Air Jordan 2 which celebrated the release of ‘The Way I Am’ and the royal Blue ‘Encore’ Air Jordan 4 which sold for nearly $40,000 not long ago.

This pair of Air Jordan 4s- a collaboration with Carhartt- are built on a black denim twill, a premium leather inner lining, and feature the patented backwards ‘E’ as well as a hockey mask on the heel.

Per Eminem: 

Eminem has teamed with the Jordan Brand and Carhartt to create an epic shoe celebrating his infamous Shady Records label. The Detroit based rapper announced today that he will auction off 10 pairs of the “friends and family” exclusive to benefit the Marshall Mathers Foundation.

The Air Jordan IV x Shady x Carhartt shoe marks the third collaboration between world-renowned rapper and the Jordan Brand. The inclusion of classic workwear brand Carhartt, and their recognizable rough and rugged material, gives this collaboration an aggressive look and feel that compliments Eminem’s signature style.

The famous Carhartt canvas material makes up the upper of the iconic Air Jordan IV, which also features graphics from Eminem and Shady Records. The ShadyXV logo, commemorating the 15th anniversary of the label, appears below the famous Jumpman. Eminem’s trademark hockey mask and backwards “E” logo appear on the heel of the shoe.

The Marshall Mathers Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to providing assistance to disadvantaged and at-risk youth primarily in Detroit, Michigan and it’s surrounding communities.
