This seems to be the formula for all limited/anticipated Jordan releases; appease the Asian sneakerheads first, and drop in the U.S. much later. It makes perfect sense for shoes likethe Jordan Melo M7 ‘China Jade’ Edition or even the Nike LeBron 8 ‘China’, because those colorways have a lot more special meaning to China because it too is a basketball-crazed nation. Carmelo’s China colorway features a simple white/silver upper but with the classic jade tone that provides a personal touch to the Chinese, with the red laces tying – literally and figuratively – up this fresh new colorway and design. The Jordan Melo M7 China isn’t dropping in the U.S. until later this month but KicksCrew has some available early, so check ’em out and peep the gallery after the jump; remember, you also have the option of pre-ordering a pair on eBay.
