Derek Jeter is about a third of the season short of reaching the 3,000-hit milestone, but when considering Derek’s winning nature and love of competition, he’s probably already thinking about the 4,000 mark. The man was ‘Winning’ before Sheen and his list of off-the-field conquests will make you curl up into a sad ball and weep for days (Mariah, Alba, Brewster, Scarlett, Biel, Tyra, Vida, and currently the Esquire-appointed sexiest woman alive Minka Kelly), but give the man his daps. Now in the tenth chapter of his relationship with Jordan Brand, Derek Jeter will be wearing the Jordan Jeter Cut X in cleat form. The off-the-field trainer version just dropped in a sweet White/Pitch Black-Metallic Silver colorway, so check out the detailed shots below and let us know if you think Jeter has what it takes to reach the 4,000-hit mark.

Long before CC Sabathia signed a contract as big as his on-mound presence, Derek Jeter was Jordan Brand’s main man in New York. The Yankee captain remains JB’s sole signature baseball player and today Sneaker News has our first look at the de-cleated version of his 2011 sneakers. The Jordan Jeter Cut manages an appropriate mix of Air Jordan aesthetics thanks to patent leather framing its side panels and toe plus faux carbon fiber on the outrigger, which bridges the gap into this crosstrainer’s most important performance element: superior lateral stability. It’s critical for Jeter to be able to move side to side as he continues to prowl a huge range at shortstop and now you can buy this white and Pitch Black pair from FinishLine.

Derek Jeter’s one of those guys you want to hate on so bad, but in the end, you can only give the man his props. He’s got as many hits on the field (2,926 and counting) as he does off it (Adriana Lima, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Mariah Carey, Jordana Brewster, and currently the impeccable Minka Kelly), and the five rings he’s got on his finger is more than any other active player. Jeter’s embraced the New York spotlight with astounding ease, and in this recent spread in Gentleman’s Quarterly, he’s clearly comfortable in front of a camera (he’s on this month’s cover as well). During this photoshoot, the Jordan Brand athlete rocked the Air Jordan III White/Cement as well as an all-white pair of Nike Air Force 1 Lows. Check out Jeter’s GQ spread below (we promise, no pilgrim get-ups like Kobe) and peep his kicks!
