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. Its luxurious Italian inspiration is evident throughout its upper while staying true to its basketball aesthetic thanks to its high cut.
The Air Jordan 2 “Melo” makes a return after 14 years and is set to hit shelves May 2018 for $190 USD. Take a look at the imagery above and let us know if you’re looking forward to the forthcoming drop.
