Available January 9.

Today, Jordan Brand officially launched the Jordan Melo M9, the much-anticipated ninth edition of Carmelo Anthony’s signature sneaker. Desifned to help maximize Melo’s combo of speed and power, the Melo M9 made its debut on Christmas Day in a special holiday colorway. Here’s more, from JB:

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.

“I love the idea of being locked in, whether I’m on the perimeter or making a move in the post,” Anthony said. “I want to protect my ankles while not restricting my cutting ability. After working closely with the Jordan Brand team during development stages, the JORDAN MELO M9 fits my game perfectly.”

Starting January 9, the Melo M9 will be available in four colorways (Game Royal/Black/Team Orange/White, Black/White/University Blue, Black/White/Bright Citrus and Gym Red/Black/White) with a retail tag of $140.

    garbage. basura. trash. BUT, at least he has his own shoe, i own nikes and whatnot…so having himself a signature shoe, its a dream for me, i would love my own signature shoe, the closest for me is NIKEID, which i designed some cool Lebron X. shipping soon!

    Iunno y so much ppl r hating I actually like the design of this shoe, his past two signatures have been pretty good

    I think his line has had some real gems actually. The M1, 2, and 3 were hot; the M4 and 5 were solid; the M6 was his best so far. And these joints are even hotter than those! But somehow, I feel like we’d all feel differently about his shoe game if he matched it with some playoff wins

    @spit hot, have you seen kd`s back catalogue?

    The black, white and silver ones look like the new balance symbol is on them if you look quickly.

    Jesus those are ugly. I can’t recall the last time a Jordan/Nike non-retro shoe was put out that I liked.
