The Jordan Melo M9 was officially unveiled today, giving us access to myriad new photos and tech details. So let’s get started …
Bringing together two fairly disparate concepts, the Melo M9 is inspired by Carmelo Anthony’s love of both high-end watches and armored superhero suits, the aesthetic design clearly embodies that. And while armor can be heavy, the M9 is not. Weighing in at just 13 ounces, it’s Carmelo Anthony’s lightest signature shoe ever.
Top to bottom, the M9 is committed to lightweight support and maximal responsiveness. Zoom Air cushions, while a full-length TPU cage wraps and stabilizes the foot, with Dynamic Fit Flywire-enhanced straps locking it down. The straps move with the foot, giving the wearer a custom, natural fit.
There are a few other impressive details, most of which can be viewed on the tech sheet below. The Jordan Melo M9 release date is set for January 9th, with four colorways hitting retail that day for $140 apiece.
