Jordan Brand makes Carmelo Anthony a Baltimore-inspired 1-of-1 shoe

Los Angeles Lakers forward Carmelo Anthony has had a decorated career. He is a 10-time All-Star, six-time All-NBA and a scoring champion. He has played with six NBA organizations, including 14 combined seasons with the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks.

Despite moving around, one thing has remained constant in Anthony’s career: his deal with Nike’s Jordan Brand. He is the longest-serving member of the brand’s roster, according to the Baltimore Sun, having spent every year since his rookie season in 2003.

Jordan Brand announced the Air Jordan 1 Low “Baltimore Crab,” a Baltimore-inspired one-of-a-kind shoe for Anthony. The shoe is an homage to Anthony’s roots in the city, with nods to Old Bay seasoning, crabs and Anthony’s career (h/t @Baltimore Sun Sports):

The shoes are orange and brown with a light blue Swoosh. They also come in a clear box with some of the forward’s career highlights written on it.
