Air Jordan 5 Retro “Melo”
The Air Jordan V “Melo” looks like it just might arrive at retail as one of those rare occasions wherein a PE looking pair makes its way beyond the feet of the connected player. The sneaker, an obvious Carmelo Anthony tribute, would join the ranks of the “Knicks” Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG from earlier this year as one of the more NYC-leaning retro looks of all time. But would it have the same impact outside of the tri-state area? Let us know what you think in the comments and check back with Sneaker News for up to date release info on the Air Jordan 5 “Melo”.

sneakers are dope as hell wait till they drop people will be kicking them selves for not buying them will sell out.
This is one of those sneakers that I'd avoid based on how ugly the would eventually look yellowed out.
I'm wondering why do this now? Ray Allen's PEs would've sold out as General Releases for years now if they'd been released in that fashion. I dont care for the "7" or the "3" being on the shoes. I'd rather a "23" any day of the week. Cool shoes though.
Of course these will drop, as well as the CP3 PE. Here's my theory:
Both of these JB stars Sig-Line's are crap and have been crap since birth.
Because of that, JB will do what they have to and put out what sells! Hence the Retro Jordan PE's for JB athletes. OoooooooAhhhhhhh say the Hypebeasts, but if my theory proves right, since Melos and CP3's don't sell much, there should be PLENTY of these to go around. Restocks, GR, etc.
I love the blue ice, but honestly I don't know what I could ever wear these with, I aint a Knicks or Broncos fan and that is the only gear you could possibly rock these with.
If the midsole was white & the teeth/flames whatever you wanna call em were orange I'd like these a little more, still pretty dope though.
I'd cop and would them! People complaining too much orange and what not would be the same fools on line to get them if they drop!!!
I use to check this site regularly for news but I just can't do it anymore since you started that dilbert by Cindy Clips. Any time I click on a jump to read, it starts the most annoying commercials. At least make them silent. I'll get my news from Sole Collector and Nice Kicks from now on cause that shit is SO ANNOYING. m&m songs on every click...smh
I like these PE-ish releases, but that's too much orange. I'd cop if I was a Knicks/Melo fan, but I think Melo's game is way too one dimensional.
The orange shoestrings and guts are to much for me. They are hot nonetheless, but maybe white or blue strings with white or blue guts they would really be tuff.
I guess I don't get some of these bright colored shoes....I mean, to each their own, but bright orange kicks (to casually wear). Personally, I'd have to work at Chotchkie's to rock this much flare..
@Jrider01 youre speaking my language sir. Go Bulls!!
@Jrider01 im a Mets fan...def coppin these
@JackSpain truth bro.
@bonbien Or, you can just mute the volume on your computer when you're visiting this site, and then un mute it when you leave. Simple as 1,2,3!!!
@SneakerHead1004 Thats because the big bang 9s consisted of two different shades of orange, as well as having the galaxy print inside. Where as with these they have orange guts, orange midsole, and orange shoestrings.
