The results from the sale of Eminem and Carhartt’s Air Jordan IV sneaker auction are in, and it looks like the eBay sale was the biggest of its kind since 2011’s Nike Air Mag (which raised over $5.6 million for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research).

The Slim Shady’s Js – which sport Carhartt canvas uppers and custom branding upon the heel – raised a total of $227,552 for the Literacy Through Songwriting program. Just 10 pairs of the shoe were available, which went for between $18,7500.00 and $30,100.
