One of the most popular retros of its time, the Carmelo Anthony-inspired "Melo" Air Jordan 2 is making an unexpected return to retail this summer.

Originally released in 2004, the shoe sports a Nuggets-themed palette of white, maize, and blue, the colors of the Nuggets' uniforms during Anthony's time with the team. Anthony played in a PE make-up with "Melo" embroidered along the collar.

According to Pinoe77, the "Melo" Jordan 2 will release on June 9, 2018 for $190.

UPDATE (05/16): Pinoe77 has shared a first look at the 2018 version of the "Melo" Jordan 2, which appears to retain most of the same features as the OG.
