Jordan 4 Retro Eminem Encore – 912853-783902
Considered one of the rarest releases of Air Jordan IV’s, the Eminem “ENCORE” has become a long sought after addition to many sneakerheads collections.
The Air Jordan IV, one of the most popular models of Air Jordans was created by famed Nike designer Tinker Hatfield. It was the second Air Jordan model that Tinker designed and the second one to feature visible Air. The Air Jordan IV originally came out in 1989 with 4 colors: white and cement grey, white black and red, off-white and military blue, and black and red (Bred). Because of its popularity the Air Jordan IV has seen many innovative collaborations throughout its history.
Initially in 2005, Eminem and Nike teamed up to create a special blue, red, and black colorway of the Air Jordan IV to commemorate the release of his “ENCORE” album. It was rumored that of this original release only fifty pairs were given to friends and family.
Due to the original release’s popularity, this retro pair of Nike Air Jordan IV Retro Eminem “ENCORE” were re-released in 2017 to coincide with Eminem’s “Revival” album.
The 2017 Air Jordan IV Retro Eminem “ENCORE” features a slightly lighter shade of grey on the heel tab and wings, as well as a lighter shade of blue throughout but all other details stay true to the original release.
