Carmelo Anthony's 1-of-1 Air Jordan 1 Low "Baltimore Crab" Nods to His Hometown

That Old Bay-inspired packaging goes crazy.

It’s an exciting time for Carmelo Anthony as he’s now in a situation with the Los Angeles Lakers alongside longtime friend and ‘03 draft class member LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis where he has a legitimate shot at winning an NBA title. And with the new regular season on the horizon, we can certainly expect Melo to lace up some heat both on and off the floor, and for his street-ready options, Jordan Brand has produced a special makeup that honors a delicious staple of his hometown: the Air Jordan 1 Low “Baltimore Crab.”

The kicks are designed to mimic the natural aesthetic of these sea-born crustaceans. Orange overlays — which are done up with ostrich leather — call out the crab’s natural color, while the tongues, toe boxes and quarters show face in a murky brown to represent the appearance of Old Bay seasoning once it’s caked onto the delectable seafood. “23” tabs that affix to the throat along with the Swooshes and ball-and-wings logos on the heels are filled with a bright blue tone which certainly spruce up the shoes with some nautical flair.

Additionally, the kicks are packaged inside of an Old Bay seasoning-inspired box. And instead of the traditional branding, the box spells out Carmelo Anthony’s name at the top, replaces the left side images with icons that nod to his accolades, writes out his position and Syracuse University on the middle, states how many years he’s been in the league and prints out his draft pick number towards the bottom.

These are 1-of-1 makeup and won’t be released to the public.
