The home colorway of the playoff edition M9 boasts White/Game Royal/Team Orange, while the away version will feature Deep Royal/Bright Citrus/Game Royal. This updated colorway is a refreshing take on the preview M9s, highlighting the orange accents more prominently. Thoughts?
These are now available at Mr. R’s in Miami, where you can call to place an order.
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.
Michael Jordan once said: “By the time you see me coming, it’s too late.” His quote, and the way he approached the game of basketball throughout his career, inspired the stealth aesthetic featured in the Air Jordan XX8. The special Jordan pack, comprised of an Air Jordan I, Air Jordan III, Jordan MELO M9 and Jordan CP3.VI, takes its color cues from the Air Jordan XX8′s night vision-inspired look.
The All-Star stealth pack will drop in two separate offering, with the first offering releasing on the 14th of February and the second releasing on the 16th. Melo’s M9 will release with the CP3.VI on the 14th, while the Jordan 1 Retro Mid and Jordan III will release on the 16th. More info and pictures after the jump.
