Eminem’s New Collaborator: Nike

Eminem has collaborated with Nike to create a limited edition series of Air Max sneakers to benefit the rapper’s Marshall Mathers Foundation and, a group dedicated to protecting refugees. The rapper will design eight different shoes in the series, and only 64 pairs will produced, each of which will be numbered and autographed by Em before being made available for bidding on eBay and at Nike stores for four weeks, starting Aug. 31. “We’re always looking for new ways to try to raise money and awareness for the foundation, so when Nike approached us we jumped at the chance,” Eminem said in a statement. “Who wouldn’t want to design their own line of Nikes? And to do it for charity makes it that much better.”
