Kicks: Melo M7 Advance On Sale June 1

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

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.”

    Are these the first round exit editions?

  • buzzkut

    Look like LeBron 8s with a Jumpman slapped on.

  • ripslam

    Anyone else think these look like the Jordan 10s?

    Why everyone hating they look nicee I would rock them once a while there better than wades

  • Zabba

    Melo 7s are the best shoes I’ve ever put on, in terms of comfort. This is what you want to hear if you ball at least 3 times a week, 2 hours each time.

  • Darrell Robinson

    Please tell me there less than $130.00 and that they come with 2 pairs of black jordan basketball socks.

  • RoG23

    @EJ: yea those of us who actually play ball and arent obsessed with what other dudes think of our style buy new jordans.

  • ab40

  • Jp

  • Ten

    How aboout the “Home” and “Welcome to NY”? thought they will be releasing on the same day as this color? what happened? do you know when it will be out? thanks!

  • Wen

    Haha..this is released because AJ knows the fact that many customers like Lebron 8 or appreciate the shoe structure, but a proportion of them are opposing Lebron as a person and this image of him will instantly be related to the shoes. As a result, many choose not to buy Lebron 8 as their conscience outweighs their interest. But damn, Melo M7 Advance is just a pair of fine babies. Really want a pair of this!! Colorway is awesome!
