The University Blue and Maize colorways are now a thing of the past. As Carmelo Anthony gears up for his first full season with the New York Knicks (CBA pending), his new Jordan signature shoe is ready to hit retail in Knicks-inspired colorways.
With the Jordan Melo M8, we see a continuation of progress made with the Melo M7 Advance. Flywire support panels work alongside synthetic materials on the upper to provide a secure, yet flexible fit. Patent leather overlays are stylish and enhance durability. Max Air cushioning has been implemented for optimum impact protection.
For games at Madison Square Garden, Melo will wear a white-based colorway with royal blue and orange accents. The "away" shoe is predominantly black with blue and orange accents, as well as white on the inner lining and outsole. Each shoe also features a tag that says "Born in Brooklyn, Manufactured in Baltimore, Model #7."
The Home & Away "Knicks" Melo M8 will be available on Wednesday, October 12th at retailers like Foot Locker. Retail will be $130.
