Ah! More photos have surfaced! We were previously shown a preview of the USA version (See: Jay-Z x Nike “All Black Everything”)

5 versions which include USA, China, Puerto Rico, Brazil, France as seen below. I’m feeling the USA, China, and even the France version.

Following-up on our preview of the highly exclusive Jay-Z x Nike Sportswear Air Force 1 WBF “All Black Everything”, the 5-pack of sneakers have hit eBay. Each model is based on the 5 WBF countries commererated, France, USA, China, Puerto Rico and Brazil. The pack follows an aesthetic made popular by Jay-Z, “All Black Everything”. Each model shares relatively the same design with an all-black format. However, each Air Force 1also incorporates a material choice relevant to the country represented. For the USA – safari, for France – luxurious materials, Puerto Rico – breathability and comfort, China – pony hair and Brazil – patent. In addition, touches are added to the heel, insole and outsole which differ from each AF1. The proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Shawn Carty Scholarship Fund. The whole lot can be seen over at eBay.

This is Roc Nation, pledge your allegiance
Get y’all fatigues on, all black everything

As part of the inaugural World Basketball Festival – brought together by Converse, the Jordan Brand and Nike Basketball – recording artist JAY-Z will take the stage at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on Thursday August 12, 2010, following an on-court showcase featuring finalists for the 2010 USA Basketball World Championship Team.

In addition to his performance, JAY-Z has joined forces with Nike to create an iconic collection of Air Force Ones – the All Black Everything collection inspired by the World Basketball Festival. Nike has donated the shoes to the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation who in turn have linked up with eBay on a charity auction that begins on August 12th at www.ebay.com/jayznikewbf. Only two pairs of each of the five designs will be created, one for the winning bidder and one for the man behind the design, JAY-Z.

The entire Radio City Music Hall basketball and musical performance will stream live on http://www.facebook.com/wbf beginning at 6:30 p.m. EDT until its conclusion.

Pretty damn dope, even if its just a AFI with better materials. Hov still doing it! Dude is a marketing genius…
