Now it looks like Derek Jeter will almost certainly get his historic 3,000th hit at home! Jordan Brand has unveiled its DJ3K collection of kicks and gear in honor of Jeter’s achievements. This new collection features a trainer shoe, a cleat and a special pair of batting gloves. It’s the 10th time that Jeter has inspired a featured shoe through Jordan Brand.
Jordan Jeter training sneaker have been designed in special colorways, complete with gold accents on the outsoles, specifically for #2. The training sneakers are maroon, a color that pays tribute to Jeter’s alma mater in Western Michigan, Kalamazoo Central High School. Both pairs of shoes contain insoles with a special printing — the “contract” that his father, Dr. Charles Jeter, wrote and had him sign on his first day of high school, that promised the rising star would work hard to become the best baseball player he could. The same contract has been screened on the special edition shoe boxes.
Rounding out the collection are special black and gold batting gloves and to limited t-shirts, which will both be available at select retailers soon. [Jordan]
