12 years deep in the "L" and Carmelo Anthony alongside Jordan Brand celebrate the launch of the Jordan Melo M12. A known trademark of Jordan Brands product development is the culling of inspiration from their athletes history and in this instance they pay tribute to the “The Dungeon,” a rec center in Baltimore that served as a safe haven to a young Carmelo Anthony. The innovation and style of the Jordan Melo M12, reflects his ongoing evolution. A leaner and increasingly fit Melo sees the M12 deploy a lightweight design with a flexible form that provides better ankle lockdown and comfort while a mesh upper, asymmetrical webbing loops and a pared-down heel and ankle design offer targeted support for a one-to-one fit. Lightweight zoned cushioning and heel lockdown, including four foam pads placed in the interior, augment this pinpointed support. Two Zoom Air units offer responsive cushioning and a low-profile feel, whereas articulated flex grooves allow the midsole to move with the foot. FlightSpeed technology delivers an explosive first step by maximizing the responsiveness of the air units through compression and deflection. The Jordan Melo M12 will be available globally beginning January 2. Additional colorways of the Jordan Melo M12 will launch throughout the spring season.
