Jordan Brand athlete Carmelo Anthony continued his experience in London today by taking in a British tradition, high tea. Anthony, who is visiting London to play an NBA regular season game on Thursday, met with acclaimed British street and sneaker artist Dave White at The Savory in London.  The two met not only to take in The Savory's fine tea selection, but also to discuss their latest project together, a special edition version of the Jordan MELO M9. White, who has collaborated several times with the Jordan Brand, sat down with the five-time NBA All-Star to collaborate on a shoe design that will pay tribute to Anthony's record 37-points against Nigeria for Team USA this summer.  Their limited edition product collaboration will only be available in London upon completion. Today's meeting, the first between the mutual admirers, was a planning session to lay the foundation for their co-design. The Savory, known as one of London's most famous teahouses, provided an amazing and true British experience for the NBA superstar. Anthony and White allowed Jordan Brand cameras along for the ride today and the video of their meeting can be found below. Check back with www.nikeinc.com/jordan-brand for the final product design and release information. Follow Ian on Twitter @soxanddawgs.
