Dear Slim, thanks for finally answering our calls!
We thought we'd never see the day that another Eminem x Air Jordan 4 released. The Carhatt x Eminem AJ4 of 2005 is one of the most lucrative Jordan Brand retros on the resale market. As you probably know, a pair will set you back tens of thousands of dollars. However, the Rap God and Jumpman left stans in the blisterin' cold, ignoring their calls for more heat.
As Slim Shady gears up to release his new album, Revival, he's also reviving this central piece of sneaker history. This time, the Jordan 4 pays tribute to 2004's ENCORE. In 2005, 50 pairs of this Eminem Air Jordan 4 'Encore' were handed out to the rapper's family and friends to celebrate the album drop. It's decked out in the blue, red, and black hues of the album's cover, with Eminem's branding on the inner tongue tab. Now, rumour has it that the shoe is set for a broader release.
At this stage, the release hasn't been confirmed, but we'll be sure to keep you posted as we learn more.
Start cleaning out your closet, sell everything you own, and hope you'll be able to secure this rumoured release in the new year.
