When word broke last year that Jordan Brand was going to discontinue the Melo line, we all were wondering what the fate of the superstars line would be.
I know personally I’ve been on a Melo watch for most of the season. Well Jordan brand let us know that Melo isn’t going anywhere!!
On April 27th they will be releasing a special Jordan 9 in honor of his 2003 National Championship as a member of the Syracuse Orange. In the National title game Melo provided 20 points 10 rebounds and 7 assists. Leading to Syracuse first and only National and Melo receiving the Most Outstanding Player honor.
To celebrate this achievement, the “MOP” Jordan 9 replaces the signature 23 on the heel with Melos jersey number of 15. Along with brown and gold accents, the shoe features an embossed leather wood grain to represent the NCAA championship and MOP trophies.
Let us know in the comments if you are feeling the Jordan 9 Melo “MOP”.
