Return of the Melo

If there's one thing Carmelo Anthony knows, it's how to play basketball. As the defending league scoring champion, Carmelo has to be ready for anything on the court. So it's no surprise as the brand Jordan athlete, he would drop the 1.5s.

When Carmelo was playing for the Denver Nuggets, the brand released the Jordan Melo 1.5s. Now, Jordan is bringing back these retro kicks in a Black, Metallic Silver and University Blue colorway.

The 1.5's traditional silhouette is still intact, a plush jet black nubuck upper, smooth icy blue synthetic panels on the back and tip of the toebox. Most importantly, the tongue emulates the terrycloth headbands that Anthony is known to wear.

Cop a pair for $130 at Jimmy Jazz stores or online Jan. 4.
