Tribute Sneaks....

NEW YORK - Eminem has collaborated with Nike Inc. to create a limited-edition collection of Air Max sneakers to be auctioned for charity.

The Grammy-winning rapper designed uppers for eight shoes in the series, including the Air Max ’87 and the most recent Air Max 360. His reinterpretation of the upper has been laid onto the original blueprints for each of the Air Max shoes to create a unique set of designs.

Eight sets of the footwear — a total of 64 pairs — will be produced for the auction. Proceeds will benefit Eminem’s Marshall Mathers Foundation, which provides funds for organizations working with troubled youth in southeast Michigan, and, a global campaign to bring education and sports programs to children in refugee camps across the globe.

There is also a Big Proof tribute sneaker being done also which is a cool jesture but all I'm askin is who the fuck designed these nasty ass joints? I'm actually not realy feeling the Em ones that much either just cuz they say his name on the side. The shoe itself was always one of my favorites tho I been stepin in Air Max's since day uno!
