C.C. Sabathia’s got fire flowing from his left arm, but it’s his feet that keeps him warm. Known to rock some of the sickest Air Jordan Cleat PEs, C.C. Sabathia has gained quite a reputation on Sneaker News for rocking heat where conventional Air Jordans typically don’t fit. Thankfully, Jordan Brand has graced their star athlete with one of the best footwear rotations in the Majors, which at one point included this Air Jordan IX; it features white patent leather with dark navy nubuck, contrast stitching in white, a silver inner lining. This particular pair is autographed by the oversized hurler, making this individual pair one of the rarest PE Cleats out there. More detailed angles below, so take a look and let us know if these AJ9s are better than Gary Sheffield’s New York Mets PE! via phase2.
as a former pro baseball player and sneakerhead, i can really appreciate these. Sheff's cleat colorway with the Mets was fire also.
