Getting the dinero appears to have few stumbling blocks for entrepreneur and basketball “Air” Mike Jordan. It’s been only about a year since Jordan linked up with Baseball’s Derek Jeter to own Miami’s Marlins like bosses.
And the purchased synced with a 16-peep investment group also spearheaded by guess who? Jordan and former exec of Goldman Sachs, Doug Kimmelman, and others from the 16. Jeter teamed with Mike J after his departure from the Yankees and New York in 2015. While Jordan Brand celebrated another milestone in its Jordans’ Legacy: the Air Jordan Retro 11 Low “RE2PECT”.
What is the Air Jordan Retro 11 Low “RE2PECT”?
The Air Jordan 11 “RE2PECT” is about one the most exclusive sneaks you could hope to scope . And with a price tag topping at $200, the sneaker speaks back to the Air Jordan 11 “Jeter” of 2017. It’s going to be a big part of the Air Jordan history for years to come.
What makes this shoe such a gimme? It’s a blue suede shoe, baby!
The “RE2PECT” brandishes a number 2 on the heels and an actual ‘RE2PECT’ right on the insole. Instead of the familiar Jordan’s “23”. “Low” signifies the sneak is a low top and the full-on blue of the shoe references the unprecedented allure of the Yankees themselves.
The Air Jordan 11 Retro continues to please fans, but if you want RE2PECT, you’re gonna have to buy it, this time around…because the shoe line released May 2018. And with some pretty fetch colorways that appeal in Blue and Sail, Sail, and a slick Binary Blue.
Editors’ Note: A shoe fitted with suede, solid craftwork, solid heel support, and in a Cookie Monster blue? Oh, Snap. Score this sneaker that features the classic Jumpman on the upper.
