The NBA regular season is just two weeks away from tipping off and though we’ve seen one colorway of the Jordan Melo M8 Advance before, today’s release of the Knicks home and away colorways feels like a great way to begin the 2012-2013 campaign. The Melo M8 Advance “Knicks Home & Away” releases will be the sneakers that Carmelo Anthony begins the season in and will play in until the drop of the Melo M9. Officially the two colorways of today’s releases are white/game royal-team orange and game royal/team orange/black-black. The “Knicks Home” colorway has a mostly white Hyperfuse upper with alternating cutouts filled with blue mesh. The shoe’s lace collar and heel are orange patent leather to match the laces and the tongue. Blue Melo and Jordan branding around the shoe and an orange Air bubble construction round out this release. The “Knicks Away” colorway has a mostly blue Hyperfuse upper with alternating cutouts filled with black mesh with orange accents. The shoe’s lace collar and heel are black patent leather. Orange Melo and Jordan branding around the shoe and a blue Air bubble construction round out this release.
The Knicks open their season against the Nets on November 1st on the road at the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Look for one of these two shoes to be on the Knicks’ All Star forward come Opening Tipoff. Each pair of the Melos retails for $140. They are available at House of Hoops by Foot Locker and online at Footlocker.com. A link to buy online can be found below.
