You’re used to seeing Air Jordans dressed up in special collections by now, but it’s not too often that Jordan Brand takes that route with sneakers other than Mike’s. They’ve done it here though for Carmelo Anthony as a nod to the ten-year mark that he’s reached with the brand. If you’ve been into Melo Jordans for a while then you know that the first couple are separate from the rest in terms of nomenclature-the Jordan Melo M3 being the first with a more modern name. Continue reading to see the whole set, which has a distinct “Nuggets” flair to it, and tell us in the comments which is your favorite Jordan Melo sneaker of all time.
I miss the 5.5 i remember i had like 3 color ways of those. Had the sickest sneakers in my class. The really need to re-release those. I would def cop those
The Melo 5.5 is the dopest one. Had them in H.S., originally wanted the black and blue cw but settled for the nuggets cw. The shoe was actually a fusion of the Jordan 5 & 6.
@Heavy_D80 but... But.. It's MELO
@COOKedYaFor6 thats my man but his shoes are ass
@Heavy_D80 to each his own
@sneakernews straight shit
@JabariDean so they not?
@LongwayRedd nah bruh they clean lol
@JabariDean only cuz they fresh out the box. but them shits ugly frr thou
I remember i bought a pair of 5.5 the black ones with blue. Back in like 5th grade. Also had the 1.5 the white with blue.
once the 5.5's drop it's a wrap. stepping over women and children to get the white and the black pair
I'd take that challenge. I GUARANTEE you wouldn't do SHIIIIIIIIIIIIT. Especially over "Sucka Punch," Melo's. Talking out your Anus, over some clearance joints. Your laughable bitch.
Melo does have a wack lineup. The only good ones are the M6 Future Sole, M8, M10. The M9 is alright in certain colorways. I only own a pair of M6 Future Soles but I see about 3 M10 colorways I may get.
If you people don't like creativity and a futuristic look then wear wack ass AF1s, go back to 1823 or just wear a sheet of paper on your feet. I am all about the space boot shit. Too many people that don't know about shoes talking bad about the good ones. Ha.
@DocBill1 i agree with u on that 1823 part...
Props Melo had game back in the day, now days ehh he is alright. But I'm talking more about these nasty shoes I haven't seen one Melo that I could honestly say I would buy or wear that. And it's like JB be pushin these joints pretty hard, I mean my opinion and just not my style, to each their own!!!
Geez please stop with the Melos this has to be one of dumbest shoes I've seen, like moon boots, how did this guy get signed on JB anyways , plus who cares about Melo?????????
I totally agree. This is the ugliest collection I've ever seen. There's not one shoe in there that I would buy.
@Og636 Boooooy, You must not know about Melo!
@Og636An NCAA championship in his freshman year at 'Cuse and a first round pick in the draft got JB's attention. Multiple All Star selections and Olympic gold since then. Don't sell him short.
The 1.5s and 5.5s are the only Melos I brought... I think his best shoe is the 10s but they lack originality
