Carmelo’s New Kicks


If you like basketball, chances are you like kicks. And if you like the Knicks, chances are you like Melo. Since 2+2=4, here’s a presser from Nike about the ridiculously cool shoes Anthony will have strapped on for tonight’s Game 3.

Carmelo Anthony will debut the all-new JORDAN MELO M7 ADVANCE (home colorway white/orange flash-blue ribbon) tonight.

The JORDAN MELO M7 ADVANCE is the first performance shoe from Jordan to offer Flywire technology and is designed to help Melo continue to perform at a high level during his playoff run.

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.

My brief analysis: If they enable you to perform like the player who wears them (and all basketball shoes do), then they’re worth every penny.
