Jordan Brand stops making Carmelo Anthony’s signature shoe
Carmelo Anthony waived his no trade clause to go from the lone All-Star in New York to the third-best player in Oklahoma City.
That coincides with a major endorsement change.
Jordan Brand is halting the Melo shoe series after 13 models, according to industry sources, making last season’s Melo M13 sneaker the final model of the line.
Despite the end of his signature line, sources say Anthony — who agreed to a new long-term endorsement deal with Jordan Brand in January — will remain a key featured athlete for the company.
Anthony, via Erik Horne of The Oklahoman:
“It’s false. False,” Anthony said. “Let’s not even discuss that.
Does DePaula have better sources at Jordan Brand than Anthony does? Perhaps, the report is inaccurate, but DePaula is reliable on shoe news.
Anthony still has a deal with Jordan Brand, but to me, it’s not surprising to see Jordan Brand end the shoe deal—Melo is no longer a true ‘superstar’ in the NBA and hasn’t performed up to superstar standards for years.
