Melo To Wear Home-Colored M7 Friday

by Chris O’Leary/@olearychris

Knicks fans wanted Carmelo Anthony in Knicks-colored shoes and now they’ve got it. After Melo debuted his Flywire infused Melo M7 Advance on Tuesday in Boston, he’ll rock a home-colored version of the sneak on Friday night at the Garden, for the first at-home Playoff game that New York has seen since 2004. In the pics below you’ll also notice a black version of the M7. No word on if/when Melo will slip that shoe on.

Some info on the sneaks from Jordan Brand, including a release date and availability info:

“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.

All three colorways (black/mts-white, white/orange flash-blue ribbon and black/orange flash-blue ribbon-white) 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.”
