Did you know Carmelo Anthony has a new sneaker debuting this week (and that he debuted a new website last week? Scroll down to the bottom to learn more about that)? You did if you read my GearHead blogs! And if you didn’t know. Now you do. Lol.
To celebrate the impending release of the Jordan Melo M6, SIKIDS.com caught up with Mr. Anthony to discuss the inspiration behind his new kicks, his favorite Jordan Melo’s of all-time, and other sorts of cool stuff. Keep reading to see what he had to say...
Duane From NJ:First off, congrats. The new sneaker looks awesome. How much say did you have when it came to the final design?
Where there things you experienced while wearing last year’s model that made you seek changes performance-wise when it came time to create the M6?
DNJ: What are some of the things culture-wise that inspired you? Was it music, fashion…
So you’d never be confused with slow-shoppers that like to paw over everything first?
DNJ: Have you had a chance to try the new sneaks out yet? What was your first impressions?
Even though its still part of the Jordan Brand, the Melo's seem to be steadily developing their own, unique identity. It's begun to stand on its own more and more. Was that a conscious decision?
But there are so many pairs of Jordans! Not that I’m complaining. At all.
Do you have certain family members or friends that you try sneakers out on, to get a feel for what they think early on in the process?
DNJ: What would you say is your favorite pair of Melo’s, out of the six that have been released?
Be sure to check back here later this week! ‘Melo and I will be discussing what it was like when he found out his jersey was being retired, the upcoming NBA season, and, of course, more sneakers!
