Derek Jeter’s list of defining moments could possibly be endless. The Yankees’ shortstop has been the leader of his team, mesmerizing fans and opponents with incredible plays on both the offensive and defensive side of the game since he joined the Yankees in 1995. It might be difficult to choose the plays that qualify as best in Jeter’s decorated career, but Jordan Brand has hand picked nine of Jeter’s Defining Moments to use as inspiration for his latest signature cleat, the Jordan Jeter Throwback.

The most notable details include his DJ2 logo on the top of the tongue, the baseball logo on the heel which also features his jersey number, and the Jumpman Jordan from the Air Jordan 11 that graces themid-section of the tongue. Those with a keen eye will also notice the dates for his accomplishments on the heel panel and ankle, and the subtle pinstripes on the tongue that tie to his New York Yankees jersey and the jersey number “2” subtly peeking through the perforations on the side panel.

Look for these to become available exclusively on Eastbay.com soon! In the meantime, check out the rest of the Jordan Jeter Collection that is available.
