Nipsey Hussle, a Grammy-nominated rap artist known for his entrepreneurship, civic work and community activism, was slain in March 2019 in Los Angeles

The cleats, which are airbrushed in Eagles Green and feature a black and white checkered pattern on the heel, feature Nipsey's face drawn artistically with Crenshaw imprinted on the sides. 

"Rest in Peace" and the date of Nipsey Hussle's birth are also imprinted on the cleats

"You've got to have faith in what you do and not take no for an answer," a quote by Nipsey Hussle are written on the left cleat. 

Once auctioned, the proceeds will benefit Nipsey Hussle's children, Kross and Emani.
