Carmelo Anthony Shares First Look of Hot Orange Air Jordan 'Melo' on Instagram

Carmelo Anthony is awful at keeping secrets, especially if he has some hot new sneakers he wants to share with the world. 

Here is a picture of the upcoming Air Jordan "Melo" shoes posted to Anthony's Instagram feed

Unfortunately, there isn't a great deal of information tied to this image besides that the two horse heads seem to love them.

The Knicks star did offer, "Right From The Horses Mouth!!!!!" I assume the release date and details will be found at his official website. As of this writing, however, there was no other information.

Nice Kicks gave a breakdown of the colorway on these particular Jordans that will soon be on Melo's feet, as well as a bevy of his fans:

Before getting his own signature line, Carmelo was known to wear a host of retro PEs in his first seasons with the Denver Nuggets. Today, the New York Knicks star shares a look at his appropriately colored Air Jordan 5 “Melo” makeup. An orange upper is accented by blue branding and No. 7 tagging. 3M tongue detail and mesh backing finish off the Air Jordan 5 Melo with release details unknown.

While the Nice Kicks report calls these particular sneakers a Jordan 5 pair, there is no confirmation on that, so we will continue calling these a pair of Melo's custom Jordans for the time being.

With no release date, the only thing you need to concern yourself with is making room in your closet for some loud sneakers that will certainly make a statement.

As for Melo, he is doing far more than causing a stir amongst sneaker heads, because he also came out to boast his draft class was the best in NBA history.

TMZ spotted Anthony walking around LAX in Los Angeles and managed to get him to agree that his 2003 draft class was indeed the best of all time.

Of course, there was a brief mention of Darko Milicic, which garnered a sly smirk from the man taken one slot behind the second overall pick of the Detroit Pistons 10 years ago.

A decade later, Milicic is more than likely out of the NBA, and Anthony is releasing images of his dazzling new sneakers.

I would say things worked out just fine for Melo.
