Expectations for Carmello Anthony’s ninth signature shoe from Jordan Brand couldn’t be higher, considering he is reaching the peak of his career at 28 years old and will need a shoe to perform up to his high standards. Jordan Brand designer Justin Taylor definitely stepped it up a notch for the Jordan Melo M9, which could very well be the best Carmello signature shoe to date.
One thing that Melo is very particular about when it comes to his shoes, is that they fit snug and firm. Thanks to the new Dynamic Fit Flywire, the Melo M9 does just that. The unique Flywire straps that come out of the shoe secure the foot from the footbed all the way to the lacing system, which provides a tailored fit upon adjusting the laces. The lightweight midsole features visible Zoom Air units in the heel as well as a Zoom Air unit in the forefoot for high impact landings.
One thing is for sure, and that is that Carmello Anthony is one of the league’s best players and deserves a high performing shoe to match. Thankfully, Jordan Brand graced the man with exactly that, and Melo just might have the best season of his career wearing the Jordan Melo M9.
