Jordan Melo M10: “UNC” PE

February 27th, 2014 By

We’re not too sure how Jordan Athletes feel about their signatures getting exclusive colorways for rival collegiate teams sponsored by the brand, but this Jordan Melo M10 in a Carolina Blue is gorgeous enough to probably get a nod from Carmelo Anthony. While the Tar Heels have struggled throughout the regular season (perhaps its their lack of retros on court) this Jordan Melo M10 might help. It features a clean Tar Heel blue while white holds down the midsole and toebox. Add in a signature Tar Heel logo on the icy sole and it’s one of the more creative Jordan PEs. What do you think of this Jordan Melo M10 made esclusive for the Tar Heels? Hit the click to get official images and let us know if you’d grab a pair of these player exclusives if they ever made their way to retail shelves.
