Today Jordan Brand officially unveiled the Melo M12.
Surprisingly, they didn’t detail any of the tech specs about the shoe like they typically do. So we’re unsure as to what was used along the upper, but it looks to be a mixture between mesh and Fuse.
The innovation and style of the Jordan Melo M12, Carmelo Anthony’s twelfth signature shoe, reflects this ongoing evolution. The shoe’s lightweight, flexible form provides better ankle lockdown and comfort while a mesh upper, asymmetrical webbing loops and a pared-down heel and ankle design offer targeted support for a one-to-one fit. Lightweight zoned cushioning and heel lockdown, including four foam pads placed in the interior, augment this pinpointed support. – Jordan Brand
I think the heel area looks great and should provide you with a comfortable lock-down fit. It was mentioned that two Zoom units were implemented within the shoe, but they never stated where. I’m guessing the two units are actually the forefoot’s articulated Zoom unit with foam in the heel.
Two Zoom Air units offer responsive cushioning and a low-profile feel, whereas articulated flex grooves allow the midsole to move with the foot. FlightSpeed technology delivers an explosive first step by maximizing the responsiveness of the air units through compression and deflection. – Jordan Brand
If you like what you see then the Jordan Melo M12 will be available globally beginning January 2 for a retail price of $160. Plenty of additional colorways will launch throughout the upcoming spring season.
