Some fans of the sport of basketball might find it hard believe that the 12th version of Carmelo Anthony’s signature sneaker model with Jordan Brand has arrived, which is a testament of how long he has been in the NBA. Carmelo Anthony is currently partaking in his 13th season in the league, which is also his 5th full season with the New York Knicks. The Melo 12 has finally been unveiled and it is scheduled for a Jordan release 2016. Its debuting colorway is apparently dubbed “The Dungeon,” a tribute to a recording center that Carmelo often visited back when growing up in Baltimore.
The Jordan Melo 12 is also a reference to the fact that Carmelo Anthony is a 12-year NBA veteran, which certainly suggests that he has learned and incorporated numerous lessons along the way. Much like Carmelo Anthony continues to perfect his skills year after year, Jordan Brand also keeps on perfecting his signature sneaker, with each new installment. In fact, the innovative and stylish Jordan Melo 12 is a reflection of Carmelo Anthony’s still in progress evolution.
Jordan Brand has designed the Melo 12 to be flexible and lightweight so that it is far more comfortable and locks down the wearer’s ankle much better than its predecessor. The sneaker is also equipped with asymmetrical webbing loops, a mesh upper and a pared-down ankle and heel design, so it offers a 1-to-1 fit and targeted support. The lower portion of the sneaker also features heel lockdown and lightweight zoned cushioning, while the interior includes four foam pads, which altogether boost the sneaker’s pinpointed support. The reason the Melo 12 appears to have a low-profile feel is because of its dual Zoom Air units, which provide responsive cushioning, while the midsole has articulated flex grooves so it will move with the wearer’s foot. Last but not least, the wearer will be able to take explosive leaps and steps thanks to the FlightSpeed technology.
Now that the Melo 12 has been officially unveiled, its Jordan release 2016 is not far away. The retail debut of the Jordan Melo 12 is slated to take place on January 2nd at a price of $160.
