Rip City sneakerheads take note: the Portland Trail Blazers’ Carmelo Anthony is wearing some slick kicks on the court lately. In this week’s Sneaker King Power Rankings from Ruben Palacios of CBS Sports, Anthony comes in at the eight spot, right between Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks and LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers.

From one of Jordan Brand’s youngest starts to one of its seasoned vets in Carmelo Anthony. This guy’s sneaker closet - or sneaker guest house - is probably worth a couple million and that might be selling him short. Anthony has been a Jordan Brand athlete for over a decade and had his own signature line. Because of that clout, he still gets to collect premium player exclusive colorways of the brand’s latest kicks like you’ll see below.

Anthony notably wore the “Merlot” colorway of the Jordan 35 player exclusive when he passed Tim Duncan on the NBA’s All-Time Scoring list to take 14th place during a win over the Golden State Warriors.
