Though he's been spotted wearing retro colorways of his old 1.5 signature shoe in the preseason, Carmelo Anthony has a tenth signature shoe with the Jordan Brand on the way.
Pictured in detail here is the Jordan Melo M10, a mid-cut shoe that shares a lot of similarities with the Air Jordan XX8 SE. The shoe features a suede base, synthetic overlays and a metallic counter. Tech wise, the M10 comes equipped with Flight Plate, the moderator plate that maximizes the responsiveness of Zoom units. Flight Plate has been widely praised by hoopers and is a reason why the XX8 was one of last season's highest rated performance models.
Expect Anthony to start wearing the Melo M10 during the holiday season and a launch to take place in early 2014.
