Eminem Sneakers

What are your thoughts about the Eminem Shoes line?

It seems like the trend of rappers starting their own sneaker lines will not fade away too soon. After 50 Cent, Pharrell Williams, Missy Elliot and others, it is now Eminem’s turn to show the world his footwear design skills.

The white rapper has a charity foundation called Marshall Mathers Foundation, which offers help to various organizations that work to bring educational programs to children in refugee camps all over the world.

Unlike other musicians, Eminem accepted Nike’s offer to design a line of sneakers in order to raise money for charity. Of course, he also couldn’t resist the idea to have his own sport shoe line.

The deal was for Eminem to redesign 64 pairs of Nike’s limited edition of Air Max shoes, including the Air Max ’87 (originally designed by Tinker Hatfield, the grand daddy of them all when it comes to sneakers designers) and the more recent Air Max 360. Each one isunique and features an autograph from the designer.

When asked to comment on the collaboration deal with Nike, Eminem had this to say: “If you told me ten years ago that I’d be designing this whole series of Air Max-es, I never would have believed it.”


“It’s one of the hottest lines that Nike ever produced, so I’m honored to make my own contribution. My only problem was figuring out how to make the shoes different from stuff they’ve already done: Nike always has the dopest color combos.”

The Eminem sneakers were auctioned on eBay and in exclusive stores like NikeTown London, NikeTown Berlin and Nike Store Paris, together with various events at those locations. The auctions started on 31 August and ended on the 3rd October 2006, on each session two exclusive sneakers being presented.

I don’t have exact figures of how high the price of the Eminem shoes went, but I expect there were plenty of rich collectors who were glad to pay thousands to have them.

As expected, the Eminem sneaker line turned out extraordinary. Eminem truly is an artist.

Most recently, on October 22, a piece of information surfaced that Eminem has teamed up with the team from Nike’s Jordan brand to create an exclusive design for the classic Air Jordan 2 sneakers.

Eminem’s new book “The Way I Am” has just been released and the newly designed sneakers have the same name, “The Way I Am Jordan 2”.

There are only 313 (the zip code of Detroit) pairs available at the “Fight Club” store and, as with all Eminem sneakers, all the money made from selling these will go to his “The Marshal Mathers Foundation”.

It seems that there are lyrics from Eminem’s songs of the collar and toe trim.

Am I the only one with a different opinion?. I love Eminem but the first two sneakers aren’t that hot. Now the high tops are superb. They should never be worn coz they are too hot too touch the ground.
