The details of the, much anticipated, Jordan Brand speech are surfacing slowly. In addition to showing the audience many of JB’s upcoming releases, Gentry Humphrey provided the following tidbits:

-Melo 3? Air Jordan III All Caro Nubuck, Caro Cement, Gold accent on midsole.
-Laser 5 with Orange Midsole, Green accents.

-Next DMP will have 2 or 3 shoes.

-AJKO will be retroed in some way.
-Hares will be a limited re-release
-Special Game Shoe is in the works for Chi-Town All Star Game in 2008.
*UPDATE NEWS PART II* cmonweb via [ISS]
-I think the Spiz’ikes also have accents from the 6s (they looked HIDEOUS)
-15s will take cues from the OG Samples, so they may look a bit
different (not sure exactly what this means, because I don’t remember
samples of the 15s)
-Gentry said that Green Bean 5s WILL be all over 3M
-He also showed the Maroon Vs (Also HIDEOUS)
-All of the 3s that he showed were very NICE (Caros, CGs and Fire Reds)
-He said it and I heard it, there will NEVER (and I quote NEVER) be
Nike Air on a Jordan Shoe. That’s not my opinion or guess, HE SAID IT.
Take it for what it’s worth
-He also showed the actual Melo 3 (not an AJIII, but Melos third Sig
Shoe), and they were a good looking hoop shoe. He only had the All
Blacks that have been posted recently
-Oh yeah, he showed the 22s, but I honestly didn’t get a very good look
at them, because he held them up only for a second. Can’t give an
opinion as yet.
