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.
