Eminem‘s collaborative Nike and Jordan Brand sneakers have never seen a retail release, but the man they call Slim Shady has an unrivaled PE list that includes everything from some of the most famous Air Jordan 4s — the Air Jordan 4 “Encore” and the Eminem x Carhartt Air Jordan 4 — ever to a unique Air Jordan 2, plenty of Air Force 1s and a plethora of Air Maxes. Now, Shady Records fans can add another style to the list: a never-before-seen Air Jordan 3 from 2012.
The shoe’s main piece of special detailing is hidden on its insoles, which feature a black-and-orange street map graphic overlaid with Eminem hits and the rapper’s signature backwards E logo. From the outside, this special take on Michael Jordan‘s third signature sneaker offers a timeless white tumbled leather upper with wolf gray perforated leather on the eyestays and collar plus dark steel gray elephant print on the heel and forefoot. The heel’s Air Jordan logo is done up in a vivid “Fire Red” to match the outsole’s Jordan hit, while the tongue opts for a gray Jumpman of its own. Gray laces and a two-tone black/white midsole round off the look.
Of course, this Eminem Air Jordan 3 is a throwback PE and will not see a retail release. However, you can enjoy a detailed look at it above.
