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!
