Back in November, 2021, fashion designer Virgil Abloh unexpectedly passed away after battling with a rare form of cancer.
Nike decided to celebrate Abloh’s life with a Louis Vuitton collaboration in honor of his artist director role at the luxury brand. The special Air Force 1’s have been delivered to a handful of celebrities, including Eminem, DJ Khaled, Fat Joe and Jadakiss.
Sharing a pair of photos of the shoes to his social media accounts, Eminem expressed his gratitude for the meaningful gift: “These are just too crazy. Thank you Nike. Honored to be on THE LIST. Rest easy Virgil.” wrote Eminem in the caption.
