Jay-Z played a considerable part in the World Basketball Festival that recently wrapped up after a successful four-day showing. S-dot-Carter’s live performance on the Opening Night of the World Basketball Festival was one to remember but his collaboration with Nike, the Jay-Z x Nike Air Force 1 ‘All Black Everything’, is already shaping up to be one of the all-time sneaker classics. Using the All Black Everything theme, Jay-Z was left to hand-select the materials to go on five pairs of HOV’ed-out All-Black Air Force 1 Lows, with each pair representing the five participating teams of the World Basketball Festival.
Ponyhair, perforated leather, suede, patent leather, and other premium materials were used to construct this blacked-out quintet and each pair was put up for auction on eBay, will all of the proceeds going towards Jay-Z’s ‘Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund’. Are you willing to pony up to cash or interested in seeing how much each limited pair will sell for?
