Earlier this month, we learned that the Jordan Melo M7 Advance and Future Sole Melo M7 will each be released in two special colorways at New York City retailers later this month. If you happen to live outside of the NYC area and would still like to get your hands on the Future Sole Melo M7, we can now confirm that the "Syracuse" colorway will also be released on NikeStore.
Designed by Allen Largin as part of the 2010 Future Sole Sneaker Design Contest, the Future Sole Melo M7 is a unique version of Melo's latest sig. This particular colorway, a tribute to Melo's alma mater Syracuse, sports an all-over orange look with navy contrast stitching throughout the side panels. The Future Sole logo appears on the Velcro tongue flap in white, while Melo's logo is centered on the heel.
On the medial side panel is the name "Chelle," a salute to Anthony's late sister Michelle, who sadly passed away last December. The midsole is done in orange and houses a navy blue visible Air window. White takes care of the inner liner, Jumpman branding and outsole to finish off the look.
Like the Melos releasing at House of Hoops and Niketown in New York City, the "Syracuse" Future Sole Melo M7 will be available on August 24th at NikeStore.com. Retail will be $130.
Color: Team Orange/White-Midnight Navy
