Jordan Brand Celebrates Carmelo Anthony’s 15th Season with Air Jordan 2 “Melo”

Before his current post in Oklahoma City with the Thunder, and ahead of his memorable years with the Knicks as a forceful staple in Madison Square Garden, three-time Olympic gold medalist Carmelo Anthony spent the earliest moments of his 15-year NBA tenure in the Mile High City. The 10-time NBA All-Star spent his first eight professional seasons with the Denver Nuggets. Some of which rank among his best in the Association.

Jordan Brand continues to honor Anthony’s 15th tour with a coveted relic from his Nuggets days. The adored Air Jordan 2 “Melo” player exclusive from 2004, long thought to never release much less over a decade later, will finally be available for general consumption.

Coated in lightly hued shades that ode the northwestern squad, Varsity Maize and University Blue contrasts join the primary white leather upper of Michael Jordan’s often underrated yet highly luxurious second signature silhouette. Anthony, the longest tenured Jordan Brand signature athlete, sees his long-standing presence further honored through his Melo logo perched along the sockliner and inner tongue.

Expect the Air Jordan 2 “Melo” in select stores on June 9.

Here’s How John Elliott Wore His Nike LeBron Icon Collab

John Elliott is best known for designing clothes, but he’s also pretty well known for wearing them.

The man managed to show his affinity for both last night as he donned his own John Elliott x Nike LeBron Icon while attending Game 4 of Cavs vs Celtics series.

From head to toe, JE kept it both basic and interesting. A backward Yankees fitted was worn as expected with perhaps the statement piece being a tie-dye oxford as if Jerry Seinfeld listened to Jerry Garcia. From there, cut off jeans set the stage for black crew socks juxtaposing the sail sneakers.

To see how LeBron rocked his new John Elliott collab, click here.

Big names like Bun B, A$ AP Rocky and Trinidad Jame$ have attended, with the show serving as a great place for a photo opp or a sought after pickup. More than anything though, it’s a great place to talk kicks with folks who share the same passion.

Taking place on July 22nd, tickets are available here.

Converse Chuck Taylor Adorns Two-Toned Gore-Tex Construction

In large part thanks to Virgil Abloh and J.W. Anderson, Converse’s Chuck Taylor All-Star is one of the hottest sneakers in all of footwear. Great collaborations tend to have that effect on historically revered silhouettes. Often times, something old simply needs to be seen through a modern lens to restore its acclaim.

Where Anderson is concerned, his vision was a simple one. Through his Glitter Gutter collaboration, he outfitted the Chuck Taylor in two-toned uppers. The foundational yet effective design method helped revived the All-Star while clearly inspiring something within Converse. New iterations of the model are done in two-tone uppers with a protective Gore-Tex coating that overlays brown and green paneling. Tongue construction appears in blue juxtaposing the smartly color blocked design.

This Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Gore-Tex is available now in Japan at atmos. It’s unclear when this pair will debut Stateside.

Kim Jones Debuts Newly Designed Air Max Collaboration

Newly crowned Dior Menswear Artistic Director, Kim Jones, hasn’t yet shown his debut collection in his new role. Many are still reeling from one of his final acts during his post at Louis Vuitton, a collaboration with Supreme that stands as one of the most influential in recent memory.

Jones, though, whether with Louis Vuitton or now with Doir, won’t stop working with Nike. Proven this week when the talented designer debuted a budding Air Max sneaker and matching apparel collection, Jones’s modern creation highlights fused mesh and leather fabrication matched alongside full-length Visible Air with “Kim Jones” written across the translucent midsole tube. An enlarged Swoosh blankets the sleek monotone grey upper while a top strap that mimics the Nike Vandal — Jones’ favorite sneaker growing up — punctuates the look.

This Kim Jones x Nike Air Max sneaker hasn’t been vindicated with specific release details. We do know that Jones’ Nike collaboration is available to some degree at Dover Street Market London. Stay tuned for more details.

Nike SB Air Force 2 Low Returns with “Escape” Vibes

When Supreme dropped a collection of Air Force 2 Lows we should’ve been smart enough to know there was more from that silo on the way.

While 2 Pac vs. Biggie pairs may feel like a slight reach, this “Escape” referencing release gets it right. Donning the same shades from the famous pack as seen on the Air Force III, this Nike SB Air Force 2 Low release is both unexpected and awesome.

Hearty hues of brown balance out a white upper and black branding, with the best surprise coming in the SB tagging that warrants Zoom Air cushioning. Yes, please.

Pairs are available now for a reasonable $ 95 at Renarts.
