Air Jordan Carmelo 1.5
The Air Jordan 1.5 Carmelo and Carmelo Anthony, of the Denver Nuggets, are the newest members of the Team Jordan; a group of pro athletes handpicked my Michael Jordan to represent the Jordan brand. This retro style shoe is clean and classic and features all of the best design features from the original Jordan shoes
. A 3/4 length air sole unit and leather and vinyl mesh construction provide extraordinary comfort, the padded collar and sculpted heel brace are the ultimate in ankle and heel support, and the circular sole is personlized with Carmelo’s birthday, initials, hometown, and number. Fitting notes: This shoe is wide across the midfoot/ball of the foot and narrow around the arch and heel. Zig-zag lacing provides a more personlized fit
