ESPN reports that Anthony will now wear the Air Jordan XXXII and a stable of retro Jordans. He wore PE versions of the Air Jordan XII and Air Jordan XX, among other sneakers, when he came into the League as a rookie in 2003-04. If this is the end of his line with the Jumpman, he has the second highest silhouette tally in the Brand’s history, trailing only MJ himself.
We’ve reached out to Jordan Brand to confirm the report, but have yet to hear back. Stay tuned for more updates.
UPDATE, 12:32 PM:
An official statement from Jordan Brand:
“Melo is a long-time and respected member of the Jordan family. As is the case with all Jordan family athletes, we work together with Melo on a footwear plan each year, and no decisions have been finalized about future models. Any decision made will be a collaborative one between Melo and Jordan Brand.”
