Before his current post in Oklahoma City with the Thunder, and ahead of his memorable years with the Knicks as a forceful staple in Madison Square Garden, three-time Olympic gold medalist Carmelo Anthony spent the earliest moments of his 15-year NBA tenure in the Mile High City. The 10-time NBA All-Star spent his first eight professional seasons with the Denver Nuggets. Some of which rank among his best in the Association.
Jordan Brand continues to honor Anthony’s 15th tour with a coveted relic from his Nuggets days. The adored Air Jordan 2 “Melo” player exclusive from 2004, long thought to never release much less over a decade later, will finally be available for general consumption.
Coated in lightly hued shades that ode the northwestern squad, Varsity Maize and University Blue contrasts join the primary white leather upper of Michael Jordan’s often underrated yet highly luxurious second signature silhouette. Anthony, the longest tenured Jordan Brand signature athlete, sees his long-standing presence further honored through his Melo logo perched along the sockliner and inner tongue.
Expect the Air Jordan 2 “Melo” in select stores on June 9.
