With Carmelo Anthony’s passion for high-end watches and love of armored superhero suits at the center of its unique design inspiration, Jordan Brand, a division of NIKE, Inc., today launched the much-anticipated JORDAN MELO M9, engineered to help Anthony – one of the most versatile players in the game – maximize his unique combination of speed and power. The JORDAN MELO M9 debuted on court on Christmas Day in a red/green/white colorway. At 13 ounces, it's the lightest JORDAN MELO ever. It will be available nationwide on January 9 for MSRP of $140.
The JORDAN MELO M9 provides lightweight support and increased responsiveness through Nike Zoom cushioning. In addition, the JORDAN MELO M9 boasts a full-length TPU cage that cradles the foot, providing lateral stability and support, and Dynamic Fit technology that uses straps made with Nike Flywire. The straps, which coincidentally form the shape of the letter M, come up from the midsole and integrate with the laces and wrap around the bottom of the shoe for lightweight support that moves with the foot and gives players 360 degrees of fit.
The JORDAN MELO M9 will be available in four colorways on January 9 with additional offerings later this year. Colorways include a team inspired Game Royal/Black/Team Orange/White, Black/White/University Blue, Black/White/Bright Citrus and Gym Red/Black/White.
