Ahead of the Air Jordan 2 “Melo” release this June, the shoe is getting some buzz through an unsuspecting channel. A Nike customer, looking to purchase a pair of Air Max, received the famed Carmelo player exclusive by accident. Or did he?
Maybe too much of a coincidence considering the shoe is in the hype cycle less than a month before release, this seems as if it could be a marketing tool for Jordan Brand. A good one, at that. The shoe appears true to OG form, down to the tones used to honor Melo’s time with the Denver Nuggets.
If you’re not so lucky to receive a pair by mistake, you can cop the Air Jordan 2 “Melo” on June 9 at select retailers.
