Early December 2015 saw Carmelo Anthony debut his 12th signature sneaker in the Jordan Melo M12.
The FlightPlate (renamed FlightSpeed) is back after appearing on the past two signatures. This combines with a forefoot Zoom Air unit for bouncy cushioning. The upper consists of flexible mesh for airflow throughout. High-wear areas are heat-pressed with Hyperfuse for added durability. An external heel cup along with midsole sections that ride onto the upper provide support from rollovers.
Carmelo wore the sneaker throughout the 2015-16 season leading into the 2016-17 season. Anthony also received his 3rd Olympic gold medal while wearing the Melo M12 during the 2016 Rio de Janeiro games. The M12 also reappeared on Carmelo’s feet in 2018 as a member of the Houston Rockets.
