Jordan Brand's Melo M8 Advances Available In Stores and in "NBA 2K13"
The Jordan Melo M8 Advances are now available for purchase in the "Knicks Away" colorway at Foot Locker. Anthony first debuted the shoes during the USA National Team's gold medal run at the 2012 London Olympics (watch Melo's Olympic prep.) He is expected to wear them when his team, the New York Knicks, kick off their season against the Brooklyn Nets on Nov. 1.

The M8 Advances comes in two colorways: "Knicks Home" and "Knicks Away." The home shoe has a white base with blue mesh cutouts. Its patent-leather heel, lace collar, laces, and tongue are all orange, with blue Melo and Jordan branding.
The body of the away shoe (pictured above) is blue, with black mesh cutouts and orange accents. The heel and lace collar are black patent leather, with orange Melo and Jordan branding.

Don't worry gamers, the shoe is also available in NBA 2K13 in accordance with an agreement between Jordan Brand and 2K Sports, which allows certain shoes to be available in the video game as they become available in stores. The Nike LeBron X, the Nike Zoom KD IV, and the Nike Kobe 8 are also expected to appear in the game when they hit retail locations. (Have some fun, and Make Your Own Sneakers in NBA 2K13.)
