Earlier today, Jordan Brand unveiled the latest sneaker from Carmelo Anthony's line. The Jordan Melo M12 pays tribute to the “the dungeon,” a rec center in Baltimore that served as an essential part of Carmelo Anthony's childhood, allowing him to focus exclusively on basketball.

The Jordan Melo M12, marks Anthony's twelfth signature shoe with the Jordan Brand. The shoe’s lightweight and flexible components will give better ankle lockdown and comfort while the upper of the shoe is made in mesh. Webbing loops and a pared-down heel and ankle design offer targeted support for a one-to-one fit. Lightweight zoned cushioning and heel lockdown, including four foam pads placed in the interior, augment this pinpointed support.

The Jordan Melo M12 will be available globally beginning Saturday, Jan. 2. Additional colorways of the Jordan Melo M12 will launch throughout the rest of the 2016 NBA season. Make sure to check back with XXL for more info behind the release of Melo's latest shoe.
