In just over a week, the colorful city of New Orleans will play host to the NBA All Star game and, to help celebrate the occasion, the Jordan Brand has just released a new take on the Jordan Melo M10. Paying homage to the historic roots of jazz, the new Melo 10 is fitted with a metallic heel counter that works with the atomic mango Phylon carrier to not only provide extra stability and support on the court, but a nice contrast to the remaining all-black tonal upper and the touch of blue on the sole. Brass accents continue across the shoe, which is also laced up with red down the vamp with matching trim around the collar and tongue. The Melo M10 is just one piece of a larger Crescent City Collection being rolled out by the Jordan Brand, which the entire Jordan Family will wear during the events surrounding the East vs West match-up. As with the M10, all of the other pieces will tribute a passion the city is known for, including food, music, and an enduring spirit. Watch for the Jordan Melo M10 and the rest of the Jordan Brand 2014 All-Star “Crescent City” Collection to release on February 14th, 2014.
Release Date: February 14, 2014 (Friday)
