"Then we came out with this masterpiece, this Picasso, baby."

Those were Carmelo Anthony's exact words regarding his tenth signature sneaker with Jordan Brand. JB today has awarded with an in-depth look at Melo's new Melo M10, designed by the legendary Tinker Hatfield. Not only do we get detailed photos of the hoops shoe, but we also get to hear both Melo and Tinker speaking on the kicks.

Utilizing some of the brand's most advanced technology, Tinker himself disclosed that the Melo M10 is "probably one of the best performing basketball shoes that's ever been designed."

The lightweight pair makes good use of JB's Flight Plate technology, amongst other aspects, as Anthony revealed, "Once I put it on, I felt like I was just walking on pillows. You could just bounce all day. You can jump all day."

The Melo M10 from Jordan Brand will officially be launching on January 4 of next year. Retail will be $165.
