In honor of the upcoming Puerto Rican Day Parade in NYC, Jordan Brand has worked up a special “Puerto Rico” colorway and applied it to the Melo M9. A fitting choice — Carmelo Anthony boasts Puerto Rican heritage on his father’s side — the Melo M9 gets a predominantly red upper consisting of patent leather on the toe box, carbon fiber-patterned leather on the midfoot and ankle, and Dyanmic Flywire inserts complemented by blue accents along the tongue, heel, and the textured TPU cage and a white midsole.

The Melo M9 “Puerto Rico” will release on June 6, just a few days ahead of the parade, with a price of $140 USD.
