Kicks: The Jordan Melo M8 (Mate?)

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

CounterKicks has posted pictures of Carmelo Anthony’s next signature shoe, the Jordan Melo M8.

Will this shoe be known forever as the Carmelo Mate? Probably. More important, the shoe has a Flywire upper, visible Max Air in the heel and a TPU-caged visible Zoom Air forefoot, which looks as cool as it sounds.

The pictures CK have supplied of the shoes suggest a Syracuse makeup for the shoe, which should only kick start the Melo-to-’Cuse rumor mill next season. Or, you know, they could just be a Knicks home colorway.

CK is saying the shoe will drop this Fall. Pics via HoopChina.

    Now that Melo’s on the Knicks, i’m willing to cop his kicks (though I did have his rookie year kicks which seemed like a blend of the 5′s and 6′s), but come’on, man!!!! The design is weak and colors make NO sense! The Puerto Rican Day Parade Melo’s were pretty sick though…

    wtf man, this makes me mad as a designer AND a melo fan.

    If it were a diff colorway say, black/white or white/red these would actually b sum pretty decent shoes. But until that happens, if it happens, these will always make me puke a lil n my mouth. Blaaaaghhh!

    Change the color before you make yourself feel like a gay dude or a pimp.
