So while we celebrate Melo’s 30th, we’ll also be celebrating his latest silhouette by giving you a comprehensive ranking of the best colorways from this past season. Which was your favorite? Be sure to stick around after the click to see our rankings of the best Jordan Melo M10 to appear, and let us know what your favorite Carmelo Anthony moment was from this past season by penning your thoughts in the comments section.
19) Jordan Melo M10 “Jordan Brand Classic”
Brooklyn held the JBC for the second straight year, and with that the teams got a simplistic iteration of the sneaker in either a black or white. Premium leather and a matte Melo heel plate made for an interesting look, but it was far from head-turning.
18) Jordan Melo M10 “Marquette Breast Cancer Awareness”
Marquette has been a Jordan Brand affiliate for quite some time, so it made sense that the team laced up an official Jordan Melo M10 that honored Breast Cancer Awareness. It was for a good cause and even had a splash of yellow that trickled down the back base plate and laces. Only seen in game, they definitely lit up the tv set.
17) Jordan Melo M10 “Atomic Mango”
Released for the Playoffs, this pair unfortunately never saw the light of day in the post-season since the Knicks fell a little short. Unfortunate for us because we would have loved to see the 3M on the tongue light up the otherwise simple black base. Atomic mango splashes on the two-toned laces added a unique look while the outsole contrasted.
16) Jordan Melo M10 “Volt”
The classic Nike volt arrived on Melo’s 10th signature early in 2014 while a wolf grey base kept things simple. A matching Jordan Melo 1.5 released alongside this pair but the M10 definitely had the upper hand thanks to the new aged look fitting perfectly with the futuristic looking silhouette.
