The Air Jordan 11 ‘Jeter’ was on display across from Yankee Stadium at 880 River Ave and inspired by Derek Jeter. The pop-up shop paid RE2PECT and had a capsule collection which featured hats and t-shirts along with other items from Jordan Brand.
On May 14, 2017, Derek Jeter’s #2 jersey will become the last of the Yankees’ single digits to be retired. The honor cements the captain’s legacy as one of the team — and sport’s — greatest players. Congratulating Jeter on his jersey retirement, Michael Jordan wrote him a personalized note.
To celebrate Jeter’s love for the game, the brand is inviting local community members to participate in a stick ball game they’re hosting in the Bronx prior to Sunday’s Yankees game.
Jeter, who played twenty seasons in New York, set a new standard for others to follow. RE2PECT began as a salute to one man’s epic career, but will now expand across the whole Jordan Brand family, who will continue to carry forward the mantra in the pursuit of greatness on and off the field.
This exclusive Air Jordan 11 pays homage to Derek Jeter and the legacy he has left not just with the Yankees, but with the entire MLB. The shoe comes with a all-suede upper done in a nice Navy Blue colorway. Adding more of a premium feel to the shoe is the debossed branding, Black leather laces and the White midsole and milky translucent outsole.
