Derek Jeter’s DJ3K Jordan Brand Collection

Derek Jeter DJ3K Collection by Jordan Brand

words // Brandon Richard

With New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter on the verge of becoming the 28th player to join Major League Baseball’s 3,000 Hit Club, the Jordan Brand has gifted him with a commemorative DJ3K footwear and apparel collection. Included in the collection are special colorways of the Jordan Jeter Cut Cleat and Jordan Jeter Cut Trainer, a special set of batting gloves and a t-shirt. Jeter will be wearing the cleats and gloves on the field when he reaches the 3,000 hit milestone, starting tonight against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Designed especially for Jeter’s road to 3,000 hits, the Jeter Cut Cleat features a gold Jeter logo, outsole and accents on the upper representing Jeter’s achievement and initiation into the exclusive 3,000 hits club. Prior to his first day of high school, Jeter’s father drew up a mock contract of chores and responsibilities he’d agree to take on with a signature. The contract itself has been replicated on the sockliners of the shoes and is also engraved into the packaging. 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 special Jeter Cut Trainer, his tenth signature shoe, pays homage to Derek’s days as a member of the Kalamazoo Central High baseball team. Like the cleat, the trainer features the contract replicated sockliners.

Jeter’s custom batting gloves feature gold accents on the back-of-hand, Jumpman logo along with his high school and current number.

While the Jordan shoes and batting gloves from the DJ3K Collection are exclusive to Jeter, fans can celebrate his milestone with the new DJ3K shirt. The DJ3K t-shirt comes in both blue and grey and will be sold at major sporting goods retailers for $25.
