It stinks that there aren’t enough “Knicks” colorways out there, but its particularly puzzling that Carmelo’s M9 is so limited in that regard. Just like how LeBron’s signature shoes come in several Heat-based colorways, the Jordan Melo M9 should have at least three – one for Home, one for Away, and a third “Alternate” spin. Something like this unreleased Royal Blue/Orange version would fit that bill perfectly, wouldn’t it? It’s got a patent leather toe-box with a solid Royal Blue upper and hints of orange on the outsole, laces, Jumpman, and Melo logo on the upper for quite the effective Knicks look. With a production date that hits close to mid-June of 2012, it’s likely that these won’t hit stores, but if they do, we’ll let you know. If you want to be on the safe side, this sample pair is up for bidding from never_wear_these on eBay.
