Eminem auctioning off rare sneakers for coronavirus relief

Eminem is auctioning off a rare pair of sneakers for coronavirus relief.

The 47-year-old rapper—whose real name is Marshall Mathers III—has donated a pair of his highly coveted Jordan 4 Retro ‘Carhartt x Eminem’ sneakers to shoe auction site StockX, with the money raised going to provide relief amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The footwear is one of only a handful of pairs in existence, and the auction comes after Eminem first debuted the shoe back in 2015 when he made just 10 pairs available for bidding on eBay, where proceeds went to his Marshall Mathers Foundation.

Ever since the first auction five years ago, only a few pairs have made it to Eminem’s family and friends, and any pairs that have made it to resale in the past have been sold for more than $20,000.

The lucky bidder of Eminem’s latest auction will also receive a vintage ‘Detroit Slim’ shirt.

Each ticket for the auction costs $10, and hopeful bidders can buy as many tickets as they want to increase their chances of winning.
