Last night Sneaker News gave you an up close look at the Jordan Melo M7 Advance ‘Welcome To New York’ Pack, a limited edition Melo-centric layout given to twenty-one select individuals in Carmelo Anthony’s family, media, and New York-based cultural influencers. The trade that sent Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks has been viewed has a homecoming for the Brooklyn native, which is a primary focus of the ‘Welcome To New York Pack'; you will see seven tokens, inspired by the old New York City subway tokens, with each individual piece depicting significance to Carmelo’s life, like his Puerto Rican roots and his hometown hoods in Red Hook and Myrtle Avenue.
A ‘Melo State of Mind’ t-shirt sits behind a glass case, and beneath it is the Jordan Melo M7 Advance, the third Jordan Melo M7 version this year. The Melo M7 Advance is the first Jordan Brand performance shoe to feature Flywire construction, which gives the shoes an even more lightweight package at 14.75 ounces. The tonal blue upper is matched with a black/white midsole, with a defiant orange placed on the Jumpman insignia as well as the visible Max Air unit. Three colorways of the Jordan Melo M7 Advance will release (these, a second Knicks-inspired version, and a black/white colorway) with a limited run of 1,500 pairs in total, and will be available on June 1st exclusively at NYC House of Hoops and Niketown locations.
