The 2003 draft class was one of the deepest pools of talent the league had ever seen. With the third overall pick Denver selected Carmelo Anthony, who after just one year at Syracuse showed the polish of a pro. Melo made an instant impact. A Jordan Brand signee right out of the gate, he was as famous for his own signature shoe line as he was for his steady rotation of Air Jordan Player Editions.
The latest Air Jordan 2 celebrates the 15-year anniversary of Melo’s pro debut. It revives the 2004 Player Edition with a sharper focus on Melo, swapping the Jumpman on the sockliner with Melo’s cursive logo, and the “23” on the tongue tab with his Denver jersey number. Featuring rich, full-grain leather and colors from the mile-high city, it’s now available to the public for the first time since 2004.
