When we think of Carmelo Anthony’s heritage, images of Baltimore, Brooklyn and Puerto Rico come to mind, but don’t forget that the four-time All-NBA forward had arguably the most productive one-and-done college tenure of all time while briefly attending Syracuse University. Melo has supported the Orange ever since via his Jordan Brand signature line plus a variety of other SU PEs, and while this pair of Jordan Melo M8s isn’t an official player exclusive for ‘Cuse, they certainly look like they’d be right at home at the Carrier Dome. Between the Knicks editions and releases like these, we’re seeing quite a bit of orange on the Melo M8; which one is your personal favorite? Let us know with a comment when you click through to see more detailed images, and stick with Sneaker News for this pair’s US release date. via HC/Taobao

Jordan Brand Christmas 2011 Pack – Release Reminder

December 23rd, 2011 by | 12 comments

jordan brand christmas day 2011 pack reminder 2 Jordan Brand Christmas 2011 Pack   Release Reminder

2011 was quite a year for Jordan Brand’s three signature athletes. Carmelo Anthony went from West to East in a trade that sent him packing to New York City. Then, Dwyane Wade helped the Heat capture the Eastern Conference Championship and achieved his second NBA Finals appearance. Finally, Chris Paul was involved in another blockbuster trade that joined him with Los Angeles’ rising superstar Blake Griffin. While it may have been a hectic year for Jordan Brand, the Christmas holiday is a day or reflection (or for the three superstars, their 2011-12 NBA season debut). Releasing on Christmas Day is the Jordan Brand Christmas 2011 Pack, featuring the Jordan Melo M8 in Clover Green and Total Orange and the Jordan Fly Wade 2 in a tonal red. Missing in action is the Jordan CP3.V, which will debut in early January, but you’ll still see the Jordan CP3.V ‘Christmas’ during this Sunday’s games. Watch them in action on Christmas Day as all three Jordan Brand athletes will take the court in a much-anticipated opening tip-off of the season, and don’t forget to cop the Melos and Wades midnight at Nikestore on Christmas Day.

Jordan Melo M8 – Black – White – Varsity Red | Air Jordan III Inspired

jrodan melo m8 black white varsity red 1 Jordan Melo M8   Black   White   Varsity Red | Air Jordan III Inspired

Carmelo Anthony’s Jordan Melo M8 is his first signature shoe as full-time New York Knickerbocker. Rolled out in some great Knicks inspired colorways, the Melo M8 came out with a bang, with the memorable Jordan Melo M8 NYC Flight Event and Flight Lab 159 in October taking over New York City in a complete Melo take-over. Even December’s release of the Varsity Maize ‘Taxi’ version provided some nice home-town spirit, but nothing signifies a Jordan Brand model better than when it is directly inspired by an original Air Jordan III. Arriving at retailers this February 2012 is the Jordan Melo M8 inspired by the Air Jordan III Black/Cement; it features a black patent leather upper matched with Grey and Varsity Red details and the signature elephant print on the ankle collar that completes one of the sickest Jordan Melo colorways in history. Would you like to see more Air Jordan-inspired Melo M8s? Check out the images below and let us know what you think.

nba media day 2011 24 NBA Media Day 2011

The day that was in danger of never happening is finally here – NBA Media Day! It’s the perfect opportunity for NBA stars to re-introduce themselves to the media and the fans, and also a first look at some familiar faces in new places. We’ll let the NBA blogs handle that drama, because we’re here to look at the kicks! Starting off, Joe Johnson of the Atlanta Hawks was rocking the Air Jordan XI ‘Concord’, while Southern Conference rivals Orlando Magic forward Quentin Richardson wore his Air Jordan XIII PE in White/Royal. The Knicks frontcourt of Melo, STAT, and Tyson Chandler got together for a nice photo, while Kobe Bryant posed with veteran Derek Fisher and new coach Mike Brown. Other interesting notes: Monta Ellis, formerly with AND1, is seen wearing the Air Jordan 8.0 (that’s a great pick-up for Jumpman if he’s a full time member), and LeBron James rocking the Home/Scarface LeBron 9. There’s a lot more to see below, so take a look and get ready to kick off a season-long series of NBA Feet features! via Yahoo!.

December 13th, 2011 by | 6 comments

jordan brand christmas 2011 pack release date Jordan Brand Christmas Pack 2011   Release Info

Earlier today Sneaker News gave you the low-down on some release dates for the Nike Basketball Christmas Pack 2011, which featured the LeBron 9 , KD IV, and Zoom Kobe VII. Following up on that info is the release dates for Jordan Brand’s side of things – the Jordan Fly Wade 2 ‘Christmas’, which features a tonal red upper with white trim, and the Jordan Melo M8 ‘Christmas’, colored up in a rich Clover green with a Knicks-specific Orange Flash. Both releases will hit stores on Christmas Day, but that leaves the Jordan CP3.V, which is currently set for an early January release (and we don’t even know where CP3 will play this season). Most of you already have the 25th circled on your calendars for other reasons, but don’t forget about these two great Jordan Brand releases!

Jordan Melo M8 ‘Christmas’ – New Images

December 12th, 2011 by | 7 comments

jordan melo m8 christmas 9 Jordan Melo M8 Christmas   New Images

Unless this is some kind of secondary holiday drift caused by all those folks putting out their Christmas decorations too early, here’s the story of how a holiday known for its red and green combo came to be commemorated by an orange-accented pair of Jordan Melo M8s. It started back in the mid-’00s when the New York Knicks shifted their jerseys from blue to green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, but the look was a natural carryover when New York returned to relevance and a spot on last year’s Christmas Day showcase. So basically, the ‘Christmas’ Melo M8 has a look somewhere between Halloween and St. Patty’s thanks to the economy of producing special edition jerseys, but it’s nice to know you can get more than just a day’s wear out of these. Their green upper and orange laces hearkens back to last year’s‘St. Patrick’s Day’ Melo M7 PE (even the green color is named ‘Clover); which one do you like best? Let us know with a comment when you click through to see more and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date (can’t be too far off with Xmas less than two weeks away).

Jordan Melo M8 ‘Christmas’

jordan melo m8 st patricks day 2 Jordan Melo M8 Christmas

Knicks playing ball this season? Book it – for now. With a 66-game schedule in the works between the owners and players, we can finally look forward to some on-court heat, like this Green/Orange colorway of the Jordan Melo M8 that could be on the feet of Melo when the Knicks tip off on Christmas Day against the Boston Celtics. These could also make for a great St. Patrick’s Day PE as the New York Knicks have worn Green/Orange uniforms on that holiday for several years, but while there’s no official indication that this is indeed a holiday designation, we’re betting Carmelo will wear these or something close to it once the holiday arrives. Another interesting fact to point out; the last time the NBA experienced a shortened NBA season, the New York Knicks went to the NBA Finals. These have popped up at House of Hoops Barcelona, so check out the extra image below and stick with Sneaker News for U.S. availability.
