Over the past couple seasons, Yankees' ace C.C Sabathia has been laced with some of the most impressive Air Jordan cleats we've seen in quite some time. Wasting no time, Sabathia will kick things off in 2012 with a cleated pair of NY's own Carmelo Anthony's signature Jordan Melo M8.

Sabathia's Melo M8 PE's feature a Yankees inspired color scheme, perfectly matching both their tradtional home and away uniforms. A midnight navy handles most of the upper, including the Flywire paneling and patent leather mudguard. Grey works  the laces and tongue, along with the liner and Jumpman branding utilized throughout.

Look for Sabathia to take the mound in this exclusive Melo M8 when the New York Yankees kick-off their 2012 campaign April 6th at the Tampa Bay Rays.
