Now in its fourth year, Jordan Brand will once again be celebrating the new Chinese Zodiac cycle with the upcoming Year of the Horse collection. Known for their love of competition, those born in the Year of the Horse have a tendency of being formidable and intensively passionate in their pursues, a reason why Jordan Brand designers decided to use the theme of Black Stallion in their design.
In the Chinese proverb “????,????” the all-black Jordan Melo M10 “Year of the Horse” represents Carmelo Anthony‘s determined attitude to win on the basketball court. Featuring an elaborate TPU heel counter in the shape of the word “Melo”, his first signature logo, along with the combination of carbon fiber Flight Plate and Dynamic Fit all produce a “contained aggression” silhouette ready to be unleash at any time. Featuring the character “Horse” in Chinese calligraphy at the tongue and insole, the vibrant print underneath the molded quarter panels hint at Anthony’s passion for the game.
The Jordan Melo M10 “Year of the Horse” is set to be available through Jordan Brand retailers worldwide on Saturday, January 18.
Release Date: January 18, 2014 (Saturday)
