Tonight, Jordan fans will want to be near a computer or have their phone in hand to get their hands on the latest releases. Eastbay will release the Jordan Melo M6 Future Sole edition, as well as the Jordan 9 in one of its original colorways of White and Columbia Blue. Both sneakers will be available at 11pm CST, Midnight EST.
This Saturday, May 29th, to help celebrate Carmelo Anthony’s 26th birthday, Jordan Brand will launch the Future Sole Jordan Melo M6 on Eastbay.com, marking the first time that a shoe in conjunction with the rapidly evolving Future Sole Design Competition will be made available.
A new take on the original high performing Jordan Melo M6, created by Jordan Brand Designer II Justin Taylor, the Future Sole iteration designed by Jermacans would go on to take on a more lifestyle-inspired approach touching back to Melo’s more matured tastes and style. In working closely with “JT” as a mentor, Austin was able to get feedback and insights directly from Carmelo Anthony and polish his design into a sneaker deemed worthy for production by Jordan Brand. Surely presenting the final version to Melo in person was an experience he’ll never forget.
Sole Collector caught up with Jordan Brand Design Director and Future Sole founder D’Wayne Edwards to learn all about the path and journey of Austin Jermacans in the latest edition of the Sole Collector Video Series. Learn all about what inspired Edwards to launch the annual design competition, and how Austin Jermacans went from teen-aged aspiring designer to landing his very first manufactured sneaker design on the feet of Carmelo Anthony.
