Air Jordan to Retro Carmelo Anthony’s Melo 1.5 In Honor of 10th Anniversary


It’s hard to believe 10 years ago Jordan Brand released Carmelo Anthony’s first signature sneaker, the Jordan Melo 1.5. A retro already? That makes me feel old! I remember having a pair myself in high school, being a huge fan of Carmelo Anthony and his tenure at Syracuse University.

The Melo 1.5 combined attributes from the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 2 sneakers and was featured in several Denver Nuggets colorways. One of the best hybrid Air Jordan models, the Melo 1.5 was ahead of its time. In 2014 the sneaker will return to shelves in honor of its 10th Anniversary.

Overall the sneaker design is excellent and from what I remember, were extremelly comfortable. Pictures of the original black & carolina blue colorway have surfaced. The sneakers look identical to the original model which will make Jordan and Melo fans very happy. I assume we’ll see a few New York Knicks colorways of the kicks to pop up in the future; right now feast your eyes on this pair and let us know what you think.

Two-time NBA Champion Lebron James is enjoying his offseason. Coming off his fourth MVP, the King wants to repeat in his 11th NBA season. 2003 marked LBJ’s first season in Cleveland, during that year Lebron sported the Nike Air Zoom Generation on the court.

There were rumors the sneaker would retro a few years ago in a gold/white colorway but they were scrapped. Today King James posted a picture of himself on social media wearing a pair of Nike Air Zoom Generation sneakers in the “first game” red/white colorway.

Lebron added the caption “My kicks for today, retro time people? #zoomgeneration #10yearanniversary #sickkickgame”

Do you think Lebron is letting the cat out of the bag and informing us the Air Zoom Generation will be returning? Only time will tell.
