The Air Jordan 1 Retro High ‘Melo’

Such is our meagre knowledge of the NBA, we can’t say we’re too clued up on New York Nicks player Carmelo Anthony. Frankly, who we’ve no idea how many home runs he has to his name…
 
Though one thing we can tell you about the lad is that he’s mightily good at trainer design, with this pair of his new titular Nike Air Jordans entangling gold leather with black nubuck to fierce effect.
 
Considering the time of year, the colours and hard-panelling make for a fantastic shoe going into the wet and winter holiday season; and by way of a finishing touch, our man ‘Melo’s’ even added his own logo onto the tongue tag, pairing himself forever with former hoop legend Michael Jordan.
 
And he scored a touchdown or two, right?
 
US customers can order a pair from orders@wishatl.com now, while UK fans will have to wait until 2015 until they get a release over here.
