The annual NBA All-Star Weekend brings together the overlapping groups of basketball and sneaker lovers. Carmelo “Melo” Anthony of the New York Knicks is no stranger to either one of these circles. Melo will make his seventh appearance in this weekend’s All-Star showdown in New Orleans in his tenth signature shoe, the Melo M10, which also rounds out this year’s Jordan All-Star pack known as the “Crescent City” Collection.
Inspired as a tribute to the jazz roots of the Big Easy, the Melo M10 All-Star edition features brass accents that represent jazz instruments. The Tinker Hatfield-designed metallic heel counter is elevated in this version with the Atomic Mango coloring that works harmoniously with the brass accents seen throughout the shoe. While the other three shoes in the four-pack take the bright and loud approach, this model dons a stoic black base while Infrared accents and clear soles uphold a common thread within the collection.
