This exclusive Derek Jeter-inspired Air Jordan 11 Navy Suede colorway was on display at the pop-up shop directly across from Yankee Stadium at 880 River Ave on Sunday, May 14. The pop-up features a commemorative RE2PECT capsule collection that includes a special edition hat and tees along with other Jordan Brand accessories.
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.
