Before we move on to the Melo M9, the Jordan Brand fits in an Advance version of last season's Carmelo Anthony signature shoe. The Melo M8 Advance features Hyperfuse construction, patent leather overlays, Zoom Air cushioning and a TPU cage that cradles the foot for increased stability.

After launching in the "USA" colorway worn by Carmelo Anthony in the gold medal game, the M8 Advance is set to drop in 'Home' and 'Away' New York Knicks colorways next month. The 'Home' shoe is white-based with royal and orange accents, while the 'Away' pair is primarily decked out in royal with black, orange and white highlights.

Both "Knicks" colorways will hit stores on Wednesday, October 17 for $140.
