The Jordan Melo M11 has a big release day coming up this weekend when three brand new colorways of Melo’s elpartyh edition of his signature shoe drop on Saturday. The M11 “Concrete Island,” “Jordan Family,” and “Gold Standard” all draw inspiration from certain aspects of Carmelo Anthony’s life. Each story is included below with the pictures of the respective colorway.
All three of these Jordan Melo M11s will release on Saturday, January 3rd, for $ 160. The “Concrete Island” and “Jordan Family” will be available at Foot Locker and House of Hoops by Foot Locker, while the “Gold Standard” will only be at House of Hoops by Foot Locker. All three will be available on Footlocker.com and will drop at a new release time moving forward – 10 am EST.
Jordan Melo M11 “Concrete Island”
“Inspired by the concrete jungle, this colorway of the Jordan Melo M11 juxtaposes the grit and shine of one of the world’s greatest cities. The gray across the forefoot echoes the concrete streets and the detailing on the tongue is a nod to brightly colored graffiti and street art, while a subtly speckled midsole evokes the bright lights of the city that never sleeps.”
Jordan Melo M11 “Jordan Family”
“Melo wanted to include a colorway tribute to the Jordan Brand family, who have been with him and supported him throughout his career. Featuring the traditional colorways worn by Michael Jordan — black, red and white — the shoe calls to mind the great Jordan rivalries with New York throughout the 1990s.”
Jordan Melo M11 “Gold Standard”
“Featuring a simple, premium color scheme, the black/gold colorway features luxury touches, and highlights throughout. As a tribute to his fans, Melo asked the Jordan Brand if he could poll the social media community to name the black/gold shoe, a first ever in the Melo shoe franchiase history.” On 12/23, Jordan Brand unveiled that the shoe would be nicknamed “Gold Standard.”
Jordan Brand and Carmelo Anthony teamed up to create the Melo M10 shoe celebrating his 10 years with Jordan Basketball and it doesn’t disappoint. The responsiveness of the shoe can be attributed to the M10’s Flight Plate technology featured in the midsole. In addition, Dynamic Fit technology in the upper lets the shoe move directly with your foot, giving you a more comfortable fit and feel. The M10’s “Green Glow” colorway features a white leather upper with wolf grey accents and a green glow jumpman, while the “Fire Red” colorway displays an all red upper with black accents. The whole look is tied together with a signature Melo heel plate in a silver to copper gradient featured on both colorways. The Jordan Melo M10 is available NOW for $ 165.
Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Jordan Melo 1.5, the Melo 1.5 has stood the test of time with its bootie construction for an enhanced fit, molded foxing for stability, an injected Phylon midsole with Air cushioning and an environmentally preferred rubber outsole. Most often seen in the Denver Nuggets blue, it gets revamped for the vibe of spring with “Atomic Mango”. This new colorway implmements a white base on the midfoot and toe box, complimented by wolf grey overlays on the rear and toe cap. Atomic mango details the style code throughout, most notable on the “Carmelo” and Jumpman branding, as well as on the entire outsole.

Carmelo Anthony’s 10th signature shoe with Jordan Brand, the Jordan Melo M10 comes in a black, powder blue and orange colorway to match with the uniforms worn by the New York Knicks. With legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield assigned to collaborate and design the decade milestone shoe with Anthony, he said “Tinker and I were focused on every detail from the foot molding down to the little specs. We looked closely at the evolution over the years – what’s your inspiration from then to now – and tied that in to ten years to make this the most powerful shoe I’ve had, to-date.” The sneaker incorporates Jordan’s signature Flight Plate technology and a chrome-finish heel counter that incorporates Melo’s first cursive signature logo from ten years ago to make this a true commemorative product.

The finished product, the Melo M10, celebrates Anthony’s game and his milestone anniversary with the Jordan Brand.
As the defending league scoring champion, Anthony is known for his versatility and style. During his first ten seasons in the league, Anthony has established himself as one of game premiere scoring forwards and a force in clutch situations. Anthony’s on-court skill and ability served as key influences for the design of the latest iteration of the Jordan Melo line. The design incorporates Jordan’s signature Flight Plate technology, offering maximum responsiveness through compression and deflection. The dynamic fit technology works with Flight Plate to provide a lock-down fit that moves with the foot and enhances maximum performance. The Jordan M10 will also feature molded quarter panels made with full-grain nubuck leather that offers a premium look, coupled with a TPU heel counter that provides stability and support. The heel counter features a chrome finish that incorporates Melo’s first cursive signature logo that was created for the first Jordan Melo shoe 10 years ago.
