While Carmelo Anthony continues his traditional hoodie off-season workouts, Jordan Brand has decided to bring back the Air Jordan 2 inspired by Melo’s first NBA squad. The iconic silhouette hosts a color mix of White, Varsity Maize and University Blue as a homage to Carmelo’s time in the Western Conference as a Denver Nugget.
