Derek Jeter is on the cusp of reaching 3,000 hits. He’d be only the 28th player in Major League Baseball history to do so. To pay tribute to Jeter’s achievement and celebrate, Jordan Brand has put together this commemorative “DJ3K” collection which includes special designed Jeter Cut signature game cleats, training shoes, batting gloves, and celebratory t-shirts. Learn more about the Derek Jeter “DJ3K” Collection below, direct from Jordan Brand. Then check out all the detailed Jeter 3,000 Hits products…
- The Jeter Cut cleat, designed specifically for Jeter as he approaches 3,000 hits, features a gold Jeter logo, outsole and accents on the upper representing Jeter’s extraordinary achievement and initiation into the exclusive 3K club. The day before his first day of high school, Derek signed what would be his first of many contracts. Drafted by his father, it included various tasks and chores that would help elevate him as a ballplayer and a person. That very contract is replicated and engraved in its entirety on both sock liners and on top of the pack. The woven labels on the back of the tongues include his contract signature “I agree, Derek Jeter” as well as his high school number (13) and current number (2).
– The Jordan Jeter Cut trainer, Jeter’s 10th signature shoe with Jordan Brand, was created exclusively for Derek and features a maroon upper paying homage to where his career became defined—Kalamazoo Central High School. The contract sock liner and uniform numbers in the cleat are also featured in the trainer.
– The commemorative batting gloves feature gold accents on the back-of-hand, Jumpman logo along with his high school and current number. Look for Jeter’s commemorative cleats and batting gloves on the field when he breaks 3,000 hits.
– The DJ3K t-shirt comes in both blue and grey and will be sold at major sporting goods retailers for $25.
