We’d seen it briefly as a part of the wider Jordan Brand spring 2013 preview earlier this morning on Sneaker News and now it’s time to take a closer look at Carmelo Anthony’s innovative new signature design. The Jordan Melo M9 breaks all the rules we’ve come to know about how Flywire integrates into basketball sneaker designs, turning these stabilizing cables from mere ribs in a TPU shell to integral elements in a lacing lockdown system unlike any other. In the image above, we see how the heel diamond resembles the Air Jordan 2013 teaser’s carbon fiber curves and can’t help but wonder if this means we should expect something similar from the Jordan Fly Wade 3 as JB’s top flight models converge on this foundational area. Click through to see these and more details like the unique visible Air cushion and textures midsole tooling, let us know where these rank against Carmelo’s best and stick with Sneaker News for the Jordan Melo M9 release dates.

why can't they spend time in designing Melo line unlike last the first time he came on board JB's line. maybe poor market no demand.
