Four games into Round 1, and the picture depicting the NBA Champions are a bit more clear. For one, it’s not orange and blue, thanks to a four-game sweep at the hands of the Boston Celtics. Carmelo debuted the ‘Home’ colorway of the Jordan Melo M7 Advance, Amare Stoudemire finally revealed a new PE of the Zoom Huarache TR Mid in a blazing orange and white colorway, and Jermaine O’neal wore a Black/Green colorway of the Nike Hypershox 2011. Is the championship picture White, Red, and Yellow? It could be, but the Sixers avoided their own 0-4 sweep by winning Game 4, giving us at least one more opportunity to get a look at the LeBron 8 P.S. Black/Sport Red and D-Wade’s Jordan Fly Wade in the Away PE version. Atlanta got closer to pulling off an upset, as the Hawks took a 3-1 lead in their series with Orlando. The sneaker highlights included Gilbert Arenas’ Nike Air Go LWP, Q-Rich’s Jordan Play In These PE, and Joe Johnson’s Jordan Prime 5. The Bulls still hold a strong 3-1 lead, but an injury to Derrick Rose paired with the Pacers intensified play could change that series.

Out West, Zach Randolph proved that he was worth every penny by hitting a key three-pointer at the end of the game to give the 8-seed Grizzlies a surprising 2-1 lead against the San Antonio Spurs. Kevin Durant, who had been wearing the Zoom KD III ‘POP’ for the first two games, sported a new colorway of the Zoom KD III en route to a win in Game against the Nuggets. One of the more interesting match-ups has been the Blazers/Mavericks series, currently tied at two games a piece; LaMarcus Aldridge wore the Silver/Red PE colorway of the Air Max Hyperdunk 2010, but we should see the second Playoff version soon. The Lakers/Hornets match-up has been a good one as well, and so have the sneakers! We got a look at a new PE colorway of the Nike Hyperfuse 2011 on Lamar Odom as well as a Jordan CP3.IV Home PE. The First Round of the Playoffs are at a halfway point so check out the full recap of the games from the last three nights below! via Yahoo!.

Air Jordan Melo M7 Advance – Upcoming Colorways

April 21st, 2011 by | No comments

jordan melo m7 advance new colorways Air Jordan Melo M7 Advance   Upcoming Colorways

The Air Jordan Melo M7 Advance ‘Welcome To New York’ Pack has coerced the inner Carmelo Anthony fan out of our readers, leading some to call it the best Melo shoe ever created. With three colorways to release exclusively in NYC this June, it can be argued that the Melo M7 Advance and its Knicks-inspired colorways are the most anticipated Melo shoe ever in the entire Jordan Melo signature line. We already gave you a detailed look at the Black/Orange Flash-Blue Ribbon-White colorway, so here’s a look at the remaining two colorways; the Black version (officially Black/Metallic Silver-White) has a quick resemblance to the Air Jordan XI Space Jam for the tonal black upper, white midsole, and translucent outsole, but a closer inspection reveals a carbon-fiber composite material on the upper for a high-tech look to the sleek luxurious appeal. The second Knicks-inspired version (White/Orange Flash-Blue Ribbon) combines the trio of New York Knicks pigments, using a white upper with a blue/orange midsole and upper accents. Again, all three colorways of the Air Jordan Melo M7 Advance will hit select NYC stores (Nike stores, House of Hoops) in limited numbers this June (1,500 in total) at $130, so continue reading for a detailed look at all three colorways and let us know which is your favorite.

nba 2011 playoffs rd 1 part 2 summary NBA Feet: 2011 Playoffs Round 1   Part 2

The Round 2 Games of the First Round of the NBA Playoffs began on Monday night, with the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers taking commanding 2-0 series leads in their respective series’. Dwyane Wade debuted the Air Jordan Fly Wade in a White/Red/Yellow colorway while teammate LeBron James donned the LeBron 8 P.S. for the second straight game. Jrue Holiday wore the sparkling blue colorway of the adidas adiZero Crazy Light and Jodie Meeks wore a unique Red/Black Kobe VI iD. On the Chicago/Indiana front, Bulls superstar Derrick Rose wore the adidas adiZero Crazy Light Rose.

Last night’s games were a bit more dramatic, with the Knicks and Celtics going down to the wire again. Carmelo poured in 42 in a losing effort while wearing the Jordan Melo M7 Advance, and Stoudemire, who left the game with injury, wore the Zoom Huarache TR Mid PE. Rajon Rondo did his best to hide Kobe insignia by wearing a white/green Kobe VI iD, which featured a tonal-white upper. Other notables included the various Jordan Play In These F TXT PEs, Gilbert Arenas’ Air Trainer SC, and Brandon Roy’s Zoom Hyperfuse PE. Check out the gallery from the Round 2 Games below and let us know who had the best kicks! via Yahoo!.

Jordan Melo M7 Advance ‘Welcome To New York’ Pack – Detailed Look

April 19th, 2011 by | 1 comment

jordan melo welcome to ny pack 10 Jordan Melo M7 Advance Welcome To New York Pack   Detailed Look

Last night Sneaker News gave you an up close look at the Jordan Melo M7 Advance ‘Welcome To New York’ Pack, a limited edition Melo-centric layout given to twenty-one select individuals in Carmelo Anthony’s family, media, and New York-based cultural influencers. The trade that sent Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks has been viewed has a homecoming for the Brooklyn native, which is a primary focus of the ‘Welcome To New York Pack’; you will see seven tokens, inspired by the old New York City subway tokens, with each individual piece depicting significance to Carmelo’s life, like his Puerto Rican roots and his hometown hoods in Red Hook and Myrtle Avenue.

A ‘Melo State of Mind’ t-shirt sits behind a glass case, and beneath it is the Jordan Melo M7 Advance, the third Jordan Melo M7 version this year. The Melo M7 Advance is the first Jordan Brand performance shoe to feature Flywire construction, which gives the shoes an even more lightweight package at 14.75 ounces. The tonal blue upper is matched with a black/white midsole, with a defiant orange placed on the Jumpman insignia as well as the visible Max Air unit. Three colorways of the Jordan Melo M7 Advance will release (these, a second Knicks-inspired version, and a black/white colorway) with a limited run of 1,500 pairs in total, and will be available on June 1st exclusively at NYC House of Hoops and Niketown locations. Continue reading for another detailed look at the Jordan Melo M7 Advance and let us know what you think.

Jordan Melo M7 Advance – Knicks PE | Collector’s Box Edition

After a crushing final seconds loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the first round of NBA Playoff action last night, Knicks fans everywhere went to bed heartbroken over the Game 1 road win upset that almost was. One of the only silver linings in the defeat was getting a look at the new playoff edition of Carmelo Anthony’s seventh signature shoe from Jordan Brand. Decked out in an always-fresh royal/orange/black NYK color scheme, Melo’s post season shoe features a thin Flywire-infused composite upper rather than the bulkier, more heavily padded original version, giving it an added performance edge as well as a slick aesthetic reinterpretation.

As a result, the shoe sheds a full ounce of weight, providing Melo with a lighter step underfoot just in time for the playoff second wind, similar to the concept recently seen with the LeBron 8 PS. Much to our delight, a large package arrived this morning containing a pair of the Melo M7 Advance PE’s seen last night, complete with a gorgeous blacked-out wooden box featuring a Melo crest on top and a tonal black Jumpman in front. Inside the box, a “MELO STATE OF MIND” t-shirt is encased in a plexiglass window etched with the tagline, “Born in Brooklyn. Manufactured in Baltimore. Refined on hardwood.” Below the t-shirt are 7 coins, each one symbolizing an aspect of Melo’s life.

After pulling off the top layer of the packaging, the inside reveals the Knicks Melo M7 Advance debuted last night housed in a perfectly carved out foam bedding. It’s historically hard to go wrong with a Knicks colorway and between that and the interesting combination of suede and a Flywire shell on the upper, these definitely don’t disappoint. The Melo M7 has widely been considered to be one of, if not the best Melo signature yet, and this colorway and sleeker stripped-down version might just put it over the top. Check out some more pics of the shoes and collector’s box after the jump, and if you like what you see, the Knicks colorway of the Jordan Melo M7 Advance will hit select retailers on June 1st in standard JB packaging. Much thanks to Jordan Brand for the closer look!

Jordan Melo M7 – Black Suede – White

March 23rd, 2011 by | No comments

Carmelo Anthony finally broke out a Knicks-centric colorway of the Air Jordan Melo M7 to match New York’s St. Patrick’s Day green uniforms and followed that up with a bright orange Future Sole M7.  We had been eagerly anticipating such color coordination since his February trade from the Denver Nuggets but Melo was back in black for the Knicks’ Monday night game against Boston at Madison Square garden.  The choice of an all-black suede Melo M7 was a curious one in light of both teams wearing their classic jerseys, the Knicks’ version of which has no black unlike the newer uniform, yet they still managed a cohesive look thanks to Carmelo’s signature long black socks and knee pads.  Click through to get a better look at this icey-soled M7 and let us know how they compare to the others we’ve shown you here on Sneaker News’ ongoing NBA Feet feature.  via JB
