Lately, black and gold Air Jordans have been reserved for October’s Very Own, but it looks like Carmelo Anthony may have already called dibs on this upcoming Air Jordan 1.

Rumored to be part of a Team Jordan series of PE releases, this version of MJ’s debut sig sports a black and gold leather upper with a white midsole and gold outsole. Black mesh takes care of the collar, while tonal Jumpman embroidery adorns the heel. Melo's personal logo replaces the standard tongue branding.

No word on a release date for this possible ‘Melo’ Air Jordan 1, but let us know what you think and stick with Sole Collector for updates.
