A History of Carmelo Anthony’s Signature Shoes with Jordan Brand
Earlier today, Jordan Brand officially unveiled the tenth signature shoe bearing Anthony’s name – the Melo M10. The partnership between brand and superstar has been one of the longest running connections in the basketball sneaker industry, with Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James being the only pro ballers in history with double-digit signature kicks to their name. Carmelo, however, is the odd man out when considering NBA Titles and other accolades, because the popular star, who won a National Championship as a freshman in Syracuse, never accomplished anything similar to that as a pro. Sure, he’s been to All-Star Games and has two Olympic Gold Medals under his belt, but the hardware that really counts – the Naismith – has eluded him thus far.
Still, Carmelo is regarded as one of the best players in the league and certainly one of the most prolific scorers in league history. It’s his smooth game and friendly personality that made him such a likeable athlete the moment he stepped into the spotlight long before the NBA days, and that’s why he’s one of a very select few to have ten shoes to his name. Granted, the Melo line isn’t as popular as the Nike LeBron or Kobe, but every model he’s balled in has been designed with distinction. There’s no better time to look back than now (at the center of the M10 launch and upcoming Retro of his first signature shoe), so check out the history of the kicks below and let us know what Jordan Melo sig is your personal favorite.
If you love comfort and hate settling for anything less than the best, Finn Comfort has the perfect shoes for you..
Can't wait to cop these. I love the way they look, love the color and style.Jan 4th here I come.....
@sneakernews Melos are my cup of tea but they're probably great on court
prolly get em M10 if Motorboat comes, or Bentley Crawfish, or straight up colorway original og the AJ9 :-)
other than that pls push for reebs to release the K1 and K2 shawn kamp in Low, preferably black/red for my team Bulls !!
Idk if people just be sleeping or hating on Melo's line. They're all comfortable as hell to play in and aren't as ugly as most make em out to be. The M5's are prolly my favorite out of all of them along with the 5.5's.
@Da_Real_Big_Infinite M5 were barely ok but them M6's were trash. They knew this because the had a second version that was better but ended up looking like some T-Mac's.
Da M6s were dope too me. Very comfortable & really good hoopin shoe... Da sole collectors M6s are veeery dope tho
