When the dust settles on his career you are going to have to give Derek Jeter major props. He was a consistently great player in an era where most of the people around him were hopped up on steroids and human growth hormones. Derek stayed fit and healthy and he stayed off the juice. You can’t be mad at him any kind of way.

Derek has long been a part of the Jordan Brand’s stable of athletes. Derek sticks out because he has won more ‘chips than any other player to wear the jumpman logo other than the man himself. Dare I say that Jeter deserves his own shoe. Nike is almost doing him that justice with the latest incarnation of the Jeter Jumpman.


Nike almost OD’d with this design. Patined leather, premium suede and 3M piping on the upper. I think their idea was to touch all the bases just like Derek does. The only thing they left out was a TL Max air bubble.

It’s time for Nike to give Jeter his OWN signature shoe. He has put in Hall Of Fame work over the course of his careeer. The silhouette image they should use is the one where he goes the other way with the pitch [ll].

    Not a bad post. But how can you be certain that Jeter has stayed off of the juice? You can’t.

    If Jeter was dirty they would’a outed him quicker than they did the golden boy with the frosted tips [ll]
