While Travis Scott has become the penultimate entertainment collaborator with Jordan Brand, one such hip-hop superstar previously superseded La Flame’s highly sought-after catalog – Eminem. Holding a close-knit relationship with the Beaverton brand that spans well over a decade, Marshall Mathers has spread his influence across a myriad of Nike and Jordan silhouettes. However, few rival the iconic Air Jordan 4s that were produced exclusively for the release of his “Encore” album. 18 years after the silhouette surfaced in 2005, the bright blue pair could be yours for a starting bid of $26,000.

Hosted by Sotheby’s, an auction for the widely regarded colorway is currently available with an estimated sale to be in the range of $40,000 – $60,000. Rumored to be limited to just 50 pairs, the model was originally produced for friends and family, but a select amount of sizes were reserved for release through a public contest. Kicking off Eminem’s litany of collaborations with the Air Jordan 4, his first stab at Jordan’s fourth signature sports a titular blue nubuck with red, grey and brown accents resting throughout. Making the pair even more enticing, the mid-foot overlay is signed by Slim Shady himself in silver metallic sharpie alongside the colorways’ release year.
