Fat Joe to Auction Exclusive Air Force 1s for Virgil Abloh Purse – VIBE.com

0

Fat Joe is known to be one of hip-hop’s most famous sneakerheads, as his collection of kicks spans generations. From his never-before-seen pair of “Space Hippie” Air Jordan 3s to his rare Kobe Bryant Air Force 1s, his sneaker game has remained one of the most illustrious and one of the rarest in the game. But, it seems the rapper is auctioning off some of his most prized sneakers for a good cause.

Fat Joe has teamed up with famed dealer Mayor to auction off 10 of the rapper’s rarest Air Force 1s. The kicks are also custom designed by the mayor. 100% of auction proceeds will be donated to Virgil Abloh Postmodern Scholarship Fund. The auction took place live on Mayor’s Shelf channel, America’s largest independent live shopping app on Wednesday, June 29 at 9 p.m. ET.

Some of the exclusive sneakers from the Fat Joe collection being auctioned off include the Louis Vuitton x Nike AF1 Low, five pairs of custom Mayor AF1 “Croc” lows and three AF1 “Terror Squad” lows – including the famous yellow/white pair – and the Fragment x Nike Lunar Force 1 Low.

The “Post-Modern” Scholarship Fund was created in July 2020; Virgil Abloh has raised $1 million to “support the next generation of black fashion industry leaders.” As of June 2022, forty “post-modern” recipients have received more than $7,500 in college scholarships from Abloh’s fund.
