Jordan Brand jumps into 2013 with the 9th chapter in the Melo saga. They envisioned a performance shoe with many layers that function individually, but all work in harmony to create one holistic, strong fit. The end result is the Jordan Melo M9. This style is perfect for any future all star. The upper is made with a combination of synthetic nubuck and leather overlays to offer durability and support. This sits on a Phylon� midsole, which houses a visible Nike Zoom heel unit to provide any young athlete with ultimate underfoot cushioning and a solid rubber outsole with a herringbone traction pattern for maximum grip.
