Jordan Brand ending Carmelo Anthony's signature sneaker line

Share

A report from ESPN's Nick DePaula late Tuesday said that Anthony's signature sneaker line is getting stopped by Jordan Brand.

While you may see Carmelo Anthony still sporting his M13 shoes from last season, he will swap those out for other Jordan signature shoes, possibly a player edition Air Jordan XXXII once the season begins.

"It's false. False. Let's not even discuss that", the Oklahoma City Thunder forward told reporters after Tuesday's 96-86 preseason win over the Denver Nuggets, according to the Norman Transcript's Fred Katz.

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.

Carmelo Anthony has denied a report of Jordan Brand closing his signature sneaker, calling it "false news".

DePaula reports that this ends the fifth-longest signature shoe line in National Basketball Association history with only Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Allen Iverson having longer runs.

Additionally, Jordan Brand released the following statement regarding their partnership with Melo, stating "no decision have been finalized about future models".

Westbrook had previously signed a five-year deal with Jordan in 2013.
