Last August, 15-year-old Allen Largin came away the winner of the Future Sole 2010 competition with a creative design of the Jordan Melo M7. Largin’s design was inspired by the clean lines and durability of Indy Cars and meaningful symbols relating to Carmelo Anthony’s life.
Since winning the contest, Largin has been able to personally present his design to ‘Melo and work with the Jordan design team to continue developing his initial drafts into a final product. When ‘Melo suits up against Detroit on Friday he’ll be rocking the Future Sole M7.
The Melo M7 Future Sole debuts in a New York team orange/white-midnight navy colorway and features several personal touches. The Melo ‘M’ logo is prominently displayed on the heel, while the in-step of the shoe features his sister’s name “Chelle” to honor her memory. The tongue of the shoe also showcases the Future Sole logo.
‘Melo won’t be the only baller rocking these on Friday, as members of his alma-mater Syracuse will also be wearing this M7 during their first-round tournament game. You’ll be able to get your hands on these kicks yourself when they hit retail this Summer at Foot Locker’s House of Hoops.
