Eminem’s Air Jordan 4 Encore is one of the rarest Air Jordan 4s to-date. Only 50 pairs were made for Slim Shady’s Friends and Family to celebrate his “Encore” album.
Dressed in a Blue, Black, and Red color scheme. This Air Jordan 4 was completed with “Eminem” stitched on the tongues.
Recently, StockX shared a photo of Eminem and owner Josh on social media, but it was the Air Jordan 4 Encore that caught the eye of everyone with the caption, “So this is happening. #staytuned.” Another note is that this isn’t the original pair, it’s a retro version of the “Encore” Air Jordan 4s. Em actually debuted these on SNL.
For those that can remember back in June 2016, StockX teamed up with Eminem to giveaway the Air Jordan 4 “Carhartt” as their grand prize. So could this potentially be their next collaboration with hip-hop icon and Detroit native Marshall Mathers?
Eminem Air Jordan 4 Encore Release Details
The answer to that question is yes. We can confirm that Eminem and StockX have something planned, which will include a new retro-version of Eminem’s Air Jordan 4 Encore. This would indeed coincide with Eminem’s forthcoming “Revival” album available December 15th.

UPDATE: It’s official. StockX has teamed up with Eminem again for the revival of his Air Jordan 4 Encore for an all-new 2017 Retro version that’s available to the public.
The re-release of this highly coveted sneaker has been 12 years in the making and StockX is the only place to get it. With only 23 pairs ever produced, it’s even more exclusive than the original version from 2005. The 2017 Air Jordan 4 Retro Encore features a slightly lighter shade of Grey on the heel tab and Wings but otherwise stays true to the OG pair in all of its other details.
For every $10 donation made, eligible donors will be entered for a chance to win their choice of nine different prizes, all coming straight from Eminem’s personal archives.
All of the net proceeds will be donated to the Marshall Mathers Foundation to help fund Detroit community initiatives. To enter, click here.
