sneakereasy.com New The 11th incarnation of Carmelo Anthony’s signature sneakers, the Jordan Melo M11, was officially introduced at the Terminal 23 space in downtown Manhattan. It was an intimate even with select media as Anthony spoke about the shoes and how he had been personally involved in their design. He worked with some top designers to come up with color and look of these sneakers. These shoes do look absolutely stunning and here is an in-depth look into the various colorways.
- Jordan Melo M11 ‘Concrete Island’: The ‘Concrete Island’ shoes have been inspired from the look and feel of the streets of New York. Anthony himself has acknowledged that it is sometimes difficult to live up to the passion that New York expects. The design of the sneakers tries to show this vibrancy and fervor with a unique mosaic of colors. The bright colors coupled with a dark black definitely give it a unique personality.
- Red Hook Sunset: The Red Hook Sunset colorway has been influenced by the Red Hook projects of Brooklyn. This is also the birthplace of Anthony and so obviously it is close to his heart. The colors are a bit more subdued than the Concrete Island with black and dark blue being the main colors. Carmelo’s signature in this model is in magenta, which really gets it out in a striking manner. For those who like their shoes to be colorful but no too flashy, the Red Hook Sunset might be the perfect choice.
- Jordan Family: This the most classic look of the Melo M11 and this colorway is expected to make the most sales. It has the classic red, white and black look and is named after the man who started it all. It’s a very stylish old-school look and was my personal favorite of the lot. The colors really go well together and perforations along the shoe also add a stylish touch. You cannot go wrong with this purchase.
- Unnamed Model: This is the black and gold model that is yet to be named. A voting process will be held among fans at the night of the launch to select the name for this shoe. It is the flagship style of the collection with a golden and black color that gives it an almost royal touch. This is also Anthony’s personal favorite of the lot.Be sure to pre-book your sneakers and avoid the holiday rush. January 3 is the expected delivery date for shoes that are booked now.
