Eminem, a renowned hip-hop artist, has long surpassed Travis Scott as a sought-after collaborator with Jordan Brand.
Over the span of more than ten years, Marshall Mathers has established a strong bond with the Beaverton brand, leaving his mark on various Nike and Jordan sneakers. Among these, the Air Jordan 4s created exclusively for his "Encore" album stand out as truly iconic.
Now, after 18 years since their release in 2005, a vibrant blue pair of these sneakers is up for auction, with a starting bid of $26,000.
Sotheby's is currently hosting an auction for a highly sought-after colorway. It is projected to sell for an estimated price of $40,000 - $60,000. There are rumors that only 50 pairs of this model were ever made. Originally, it was created exclusively for friends and family, but a small number of sizes were made available to the public through a contest.
This particular collaboration between Eminem and Air Jordan 4 marked the beginning of their long list of joint ventures. The shoes feature a prominent blue nubuck material with accents of red, grey, and brown. To add to its appeal, Eminem himself has signed the mid-foot overlay in silver metallic sharpie, along with the release year of the colorway.
Take pleasure in the intricate photographs showcasing the Eminem x Air Jordan 4 "Encore" before exploring Sotheby's listing. The bidding for this men's size 10.5 pair will conclude on the 18th of December.
By the way, Travis Scott's Nike Mac Attack 'Cactus Jack' will bee released December 19th.
