Los Angeles-based designer Melody Ehsani is preparing to launch her second shoe with Jordan, an OG Women’s basketball silhouette. Along with the shoe, the label will release a cherry-themed clothing and accessory collection that coordinates with the sneaker, which is detailed with a cherry lace lock.
Why a cherry? On Instagram Ehsani explained, “The cherry throughout time has been a symbol of abundance, associated with goddess of fertility and plenty. So I say to you, goddess, may your creativity be fertile however you choose to use it and may abundance in all things good be yours. Big love to all my sisters all around the world, this one’s for YOU.”
In addition to the cherry items, there’s also a tribute t-shirt for WNBA icon Sheryl Swoopes, who played in the WNBA from 1997-2011. She is a three-time WNBA MVP and four-time WNBA champion. She’s also the first women’s basketball player to have a signature Nike shoe, call Air Swoopes. A percentage of each ME x Sheryl Swoopes t-shirt sold will be donated to Swoopes’ charity organization, Back to our Roots.
The entire collection along with the OG Jordan will launch on March 14, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST on melodyehsani.com as well as the label’s Los Angeles and Manhattan stores. For more info on the Jordan drop, click here.
