Derek Jeter’s & Jordan Brand’s “RE2PECT” Collection Continues With Three More New Releases

Derek Jeter’s professional baseball career and the 2014 Major League Baseball season came to their respective conclusions at the same time. Following the season, Derek retired from the sport, vacating his position as a shortstop for the New York Yankees. Considering his illustrious career that spanned a total of 22 years, he certainly deserved nothing but the utmost respect. Hence, Nike’s Jordan Brand produced a 90-second commercial that featured appearances from celebrities, current and former MLB player, Derek’s fans and friends, and various other athletes, all of whom paid tribute to him. That commercial from 3 years ago ended with the “Jumpman” logo and the tagline “RE2PECT” (i.e. RESPECT).

Ever since that commercial first aired, the role that Derek Jetter has played in Jordan Brand has gradually expanded. Back in 2016, Derek married Hannah Davis, and not long after, Nike published a news release announcing that the baseball legend would be staying with the brand. Not just that, the news release revealed that Jordan Brand had designated Derek Jetter as the “captain” of their “RE2PECT” line. Derek Jetter would be joining several other baseball players that are collectively recognized as Jordan Brand athletes. It was also revealed that Derek Jetter’s “RE2PECT” line would be continued with further lifestyle and training apparel and shoes that would arrive in Spring 2017.

Ever since this year commenced, sneakerheads have probably been wondering if Spring’s Jordan releases 2017 would indeed include more releases from Derek Jetter’s “RE2PECT” Collection. This actually seems to be the case now. It seems that the latest installments that are being added to the “RE2PECT” Collection include brand new iterations of the Air Jordan 1, the Jordan Hydro 6 Slide and the Jordan Lunar Glide. Despite being vastly different, all three shoes appear to be featuring similar color schemes of Obsidian and White, inspired by the New York Yankees. “RE2PECT” lettering can also be spotted on the sides of the Jordan Hydro 6 Slide.

It is a chance that 2017’s Derek Jetter x Jordan Brand “RE2PECT” Collection will include more shoe releases and perhaps even a range of apparel as well. These three shoes will be arriving at retailers on July 26th, 2017, with the Air Jordan 1 Mid set to retail for $110, the Jordan Lunar Grind for $125 and the Jordan Hydro 6 Slide for $50.
