Rapper to design trainers

Eminem has teamed up with Nike to create limited edition versions of its Air Max trainers.

Profits from the sale of the shoe will go towards raising money for the rappers Marshall Mathers Foundation, which funds organisations working with troubled youth and refugee children’s charity ninemillion.org.

Eminem and his design team will produce 64 pairs of shoes, that will be numbered, autographed, then auctioned off over a month at Nike stores across the world and on eBay from tomorrow (August 31).

In a statement on Eminem.com, the Detroit rapper said: “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. Who wouldn’t want to design their own lines of Nikes? And to do it for charity makes it that much better.”
