New York, NY (SteinerSports.com) – Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation has partnered with Steiner Sports to include two pairs of special edition Jordan Brand autographed cleats in their “Derek Jeter Farewell Auction” running now through October 19.
The cleats, made exclusively for the Yankees Captain in honor of his final season, feature special commemorative graphics paying RE2PECT to Jeter’s career.
There are two variations of the Jeter Lux 2.0 cleats: one pair was made as a special 1 of 1 for Turn 2, featuring Jeter’s Kalamazoo High School colors of maroon and gold. The second version, the Pitch Blue & Silver pair, was made for Jeter to wear throughout his final season. The two pairs of cleats are autographed but not game-used.
This marks the first time these exclusive cleats will be available to the public, with proceeds benefiting the Turn 2 Foundation. Visit the auction at auction.steinersports.com.
