CC Sabathia of the New York Yankees achieved a remarkable milestone this week when he became the 17th pitcher and third left-hander in MLB history to strike out 3,000 batters, so Jordan Brand is celebrating the momentous occasion with an Air Jordan 11 PE cleat. Featuring a rich navy blue upper with a black patent leather mudguard, grey laces, and a grey Jumpman, the spikes are a physical embodiment of the Yankee Way: elegant and effective, but not too flashy. For a finishing touch of unique personal style, Sabathia’s #52 appears on the heel in place of Michael Jordan’s #23. The hefty lefty is certainly no stranger to Air Jordan PEs — he’s long been at the forefront of their baseball squad — but as this is his 19th and final season, this one’s a little bit more special than most. Get a detailed look above, and for more special Jordans sported by Yankee players, be sure to check out Clint Frazier’s custom Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 cleats as well.
