Just got the heads up from Jordan Brand that the Jordan Melo M7 Advance would be hitting select retailers (read: HOH and Nike stores) Wednesday, June 1 with a $130 price tag on it.

We touched on these shoes at the start of the Playoffs (how far back does that seem?), but just as a reminder, the shoe is the first JB product to use Flywire technology and came out just in time for the Knicks’ short-lived Playoff run. Some words on the shoes from JB are below:

“Built for optimal performance on the court, and with an all-new lightweight design, enhanced lockdown support and superior comfort, the JORDAN MELO M7 ADVANCE not only represents the marriage of performance technology and innovative design materials, but also continues to take its inspiration from Melo’s premium style and dominance.

The black/mts-white colorway will be available at select New York City retailers (House of Hoops & Nike stores), beginning June 1, 2011 with a suggested retail price of $130.”
