Jordan Brand is set to bring back the Air Jordan 2 Melo as part of their Spring/Summer 2018 lineup. As a nod to Carmelo Anthony’s time spent wit the Denver Nuggets, the retro release will come dressed in a Nuggets-themed color scheme.
Originally released in 2004, the Melo-inspired Air Jordan 2 returns in its White, Varsity Maize and University Blue to match the Nuggets’ uniforms. Anthony’s player exclusive was highlighted with “Melo” embroidered along the collar, but don’t expect this retro to included that feature.

Look for the Air Jordan 2 “Melo” to release on June 9th at select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $190 USD.
