Say you plan to undertake a goal that most people complete in four years, and say you achieved even more than you expected in just a single turn of the calendar. Wouldn’t that seem like a good time to get out on top? Well that’s exactly what Syracuse University alum Carmelo Anthony did, besting his own expectations by becoming an All-American and winning a National Championship as a freshman. It was convincing enough that even with LeBron James a mortal lock for the number 1 pick, ‘Cuse coach Jim Boeheim gave Melo his blessing to step into the pro game. So it’s no wonder why, despite his relatively short stay, Anthony is Orange through and through, and why each year we see Syracuse player exclusives from his Jordan Brand signature line like the above pictured Jordan Melo M7 Future Sole. These are perhaps the single most attention-grabbing rendition on Allan Largin’s contest winning design, the tonal orange upper and white accents plus blue stitching making these a must for any Melo collector.
