Derek Jeter, the former member of the New York Yankees roster, is known for being quite competitive. He is still somewhat of a rookie when it comes to owning a professional baseball team, yet he seems quite adamant to take ownership of the Miami Marlins. The quarterly ownership meetings of the Major League Baseball recently concluded at the MLB’s headquarters in Manhattan. Derek is apparently a part of a group that are among the top two bidders for the Miami Marlins franchise. Turns out that Jordan Brand recently even designed a limited edition Air Jordan 11 iteration, which resembles the upcoming Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Navy.”
The group bidding for the Miami Marlins that Derek Jeter is a part of also includes Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida. Tagg Romney, Mitt Romney’s son, is heading the other suitor that is also bidding for the franchise. As far as amount goes, it seems that both groups have placed similar bids with minor differences. Fortunately for Jeffrey Loria, the current owner of the Miami Marlins, both of them have placed their bids within the price range he was looking for. Jeffrey Loria will eventually end up giving away ownership of the Miami Marlins franchise for a bid that is above $1 billion.
Along with the possibility of becoming the new owner of the Miami Marlins, Derek Jeter is probably also feeling quite thrilled about the exclusive Air Jordan 11 rendition that Jordan Brand recently whipped for him. Jordan Brand crafted the sneaker as a tribute to Derek Jeter’s legacy that extends far beyond the New York Yankees, throughout the entire MLB. The sneaker itself has uppers made up entirely of suede and dressed up in Navy Blue. Branding appears to have been debossed onto it, while it also seems to be equipped with Black-colored leather laces, clean White-colored midsoles and milky, translucent outsoles.
It does somewhat look similar to the Air Jordan 11 IE Low “Navy,” which will be among the Summer Air Jordan releases 2017, but sneakerheads can forget about copping the one featured here. Jordan Brand merely produced 5 pairs of this extremely limited Air Jordan 11 “Navy Suede” exclusively for Derek Jeter, although a pair or two might show up somewhere for sale at outrageously high prices.
