New York Knicks fans have a lot to be happy about what with their team fielding an actually competitive squad. And while most of that excitement surrounds the emergence of a certain Latvian draft pick, Carmelo Anthony is healthy and leading the Knickerbockers to a potential playoff birth. Melo is still Jordan Brand’s most prolific signature athlete, and now the Jordan Melo M12 is here to continue Carmelo’s run as the senior most athlete at the Jumpman. The debut colorway, known as the Jordan Melo M12 “The Dungeon” takes Melo back to his days honing his skill at a local Baltimore rec center that served as a safe haven, allowing him to focus exclusively on hoops.
The Melo M12 features a flexible, lightweight construction that features a lockdown ankle support to nod at the ongoing evolution of Carmelo’s game, now in its 12th professional year. A mesh upper is supported by what Jordan Brand is calling “Zoned Cushioning” (which quite frankly looks LeBron-esque). FlightSpeed technology delivers an explosive first step with maximum responsiveness thanks to added air units.
The Jordan Melo M12 will debut at global retailers on January 2nd for $160. Catch more official images below.
