Pros:

Responsive cushioning
Nice materials

CONS:

Bad traction

Performance of the Jordan Melo M13:

The 13th edition of the Melo signature line is a big disappointment. While the materials look good and feel comfortable and cushioning is responsive, other components of this shoe are not able to convince. The traction pattern works only on pristine courts, otherwise, you will be sliding all over the place. The soft mesh material doesn't contain your feet very well, and the absence of a heel counter leads to a lot of heel slippage. If you are a dynamic basketball player, then the M13 won't work for you. Stationary post up players might like the comfortable cushioning, but overall, there are much better basketball shoes on the market.

Nice try, but not quite. Felled by traction and support, the Melo M13 had potential.

I didn't like the Melo M13. As a guard, don't get these! The cushioning and the materials are good, but the traction was a dealbreaker for me.

The cushioning in the forefoot is bouncy and responsive, impact protection is decent.

No heel counter, no forefoot containment, which means my foot was all over the place inside the shoe while cutting and stopping.

Materials are very supportive, but there were problems with heel slippage.

Once laced solid, there is no heel slip or midfoot movement to really complain about.

The rubber is pretty hard so you should be okay outdoors.
