First releasing in 2004, the Air Jordan 2 Retro ‘Melo’ was an early homage to Carmelo Anthony who signed with Jordan Brand after his National Championship victory in 2003 (commemorated with April’s Air Jordan 9 Retro ‘MOP’), 14 years separate the OG from the retro run. Maintaining the same build from and direct color blocking from the original, the forthcoming Melo 2s is a nice touch to the collection. And as a treat to the city of Denver where Melo started his career…the retro will be available early at Finish Line’s new Park Meadows flagship location on Saturday.
Actual release is scheduled for June 9th.
