Unless this is some kind of secondary holiday drift caused by all those folks putting out their Christmas decorations too early, here’s the story of how a holiday known for its red and green combo came to be commemorated by an orange-accented pair of Jordan Melo M8s. It started back in the mid-’00s when the New York Knicks shifted their jerseys from blue to green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, but the look was a natural carryover when New York returned to relevance and a spot on last year’s Christmas Day showcase. So basically, the ‘Christmas’ Melo M8 has a look somewhere between Halloween and St. Patty’s thanks to the economy of producing special edition jerseys, but it’s nice to know you can get more than just a day’s wear out of these. Their green upper and orange laces hearkens back to last year’s‘St. Patrick’s Day’ Melo M7 PE (even the green color is named ‘Clover); which one do you like best? Let us know with a comment when you click through to see more and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date (can’t be too far off with Xmas less than two weeks away).
