To commemorate Derek Jeter's final season, Jordan Brand is set to drop an exclusive collector of footwear.
While the 2014 MLB regular season is coming to a close, so is Derek Jeter's career. As the Yankees continue to try and grab a Wil Card spot, Jeter's days in pinstripes are limited. But before we tip our caps one last time to 'The Captain,' Jordan Brand is set to release an exclusive Jeter Collection. This collection features an Air Jordan 1 Retro High and a Jordan Flight Flex Trainer, both featuring Jeter's logo on the tongue tags. While no images are available at this time, one can assume they will be Yankees-related.
The Jordan Brand Derek Jeter Collection will be available exclusively at Flight 23 at Footaction NYC on Thursday, September 18 in limited quantities. Tickets will be handed out on Monday, September 15 an Tuesday, September 16. Stick with us here at Sole Collector as we will post more information as it becomes available.
UPDATE 9/18: New images via Footaction. The collection releases today at Flight 23 in NYC before the official launch on Saturday.
UPDATE 9/15: The Jordan 'Jeter' Collection will also release on nike.com on Saturday, September 20.
