Two M9 Previews – Royal Suede and Bright Crimson

Last weekend, at NBA All-Star weekend in Houston, Jordan Brand previewed two new colorways of the Carmelo Anthony M9.

The first pair, dubbed the Royal Suede’s, features a blue upper and toe box, with orange accents. These are considered an update to the suede M8′s Melo wore last year against the Chicago Bulls.

The other pair of M9s previewed at the Flight Desk showcase were the Bright Crimsons:

Both of these colorways have no release date linked to them as of yet, so it’s unclear whether these will drop later in the year, or if they will just be a player edition for Melo himself to play in.

Thoughts?
