If you’re looking at the above pictured Jordan Melo M8 colorway and wondering why it looks oddly familiar you are well justified in your confusion. The taxi cab combo was originally slated to release for December 2011, set to be one of the first Melo models available right when the new NBA season got going. Just like that though they were inexplicably stricken from the schedule, only to pop up again unexpectedly here in March. The bold colorway can be seen as a bit of a tribute to Melo’s recent move to NYC, with the sneaker matching the outfit of the infinite taxis dotting the city. Take a look at the gallery for some more angles of the sneaker and cop the Melo M8 ‘NYC Taxi’ now from Nikestore.
