As a tribute to the rec center, “The Dungeon”, which was young Carmelo Anthony’s haven for him to focus right on basketball, Jordan Brand is now unveiling the newest and latest addition to their collection, the Jordan Melo M12.
Jordan Melo M12
Color:Black/Metallic Hematite-Fire Pink-Green Gusto
Release Date:January 2, 2016
Earlier in December, Sneaker News revealed that fans have more to celebrate with the most prolific signature athlete of Jordan Brand that is none other than Carmelo Anthony. Aside from his leading the Knickerbockers to a possible playoff birth, Melo will also have another sneaker to his name, the Jordan Melo M12 also known as the “The Dungeon” to pay homage to the local Baltimore rec center that made him focus and stay on the hoops.
So what’s new with the Melo M12?
Given the hard work it takes for Melo to play if off, the M12 is constructed to offer its wearer the ultimate comfort with interior foam pads for better support and comfortable feel. It’s also equipped with Jordan Brand’s newest Zoom Air and FlightSpeed technologies for better court performance. As for the standout style of the Melo M12, the explosive mix of bright colors – pink, blue, orange, and out-of-this-world green, on a muted black and gray-black leather upper makes up for a vibrant and bold look.
The first few leaked features of the Jordan Melo M12 gave us a glimpse of bold and colorful outsoles, muted black mesh upper, and the vibrant green design found on the tongue of the shoes as well as the green Jumpman logo on the insoles and the ankles. On closer inspection, the name “Melo” can be found on the webbing loos of the shoes’ heel and ankle design which makes for a subtle addition.
But what makes the M12 different is that it’s the epitome of style and innovation. This pair of sneakers which will have its official Jordan release date on January 2016 is very lightweight and employs a flexible form to support better ankle lockdown. The shoes upper is also made up of mesh with asymmetrical webbing loops for better comfort aside from the added interior foam pads and lightweight zoned cushioning of the shoes.
The shoes also sports two Zoom Air units to provide responsive cushioning while the articulated flex grooves makes it easy for the midsole to move with your feet. On the other hand, the FlightSpeed technology helps maximize the shoes’ air units’ responsiveness with the help of deflection and compression.
The Melo M12 would be available on Jordan Brand stores worldwide on January 2 which is just days away. So stay tuned for more updates like any additional colorways for its launch throughout Spring season.
