New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge has officially inked a deal with Jordan Brand. This signing marks a significant chapter in Judge’s journey; he was previously signed with adidas during his college years and sported New Balance cleats during the 2022 season.
Judge’s affiliation with Jordan Brand began even before this official announcement. Notably, he arrived at Spring Training this year rocking various Jordan models, including the Air Jordan 2 Low "Responsibility." His footwear choices signaled an unofficial endorsement that has kept sneakerheads and baseball fans buzzing throughout the season. With this formal partnership, Judge aligns himself with the brand legendary Yankee captain Derek Jeter championed during his illustrious career. Once the face of Jordan Brand's baseball division, Jeter sets a prestigious precedent for Judge's path with the iconic brand.
Aaron Judge is just the fifth active MLB player to secure a deal with Jordan Brand. He joins a roster of stars including Manny Machado, Mookie Betts, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and most recently, the dynamic Jazz Chisholm Jr. As for the details of Judge's agreement, the specifics, including payment and the length of the deal, remain undisclosed to the public. While there has yet to be a word on a signature cleat for the powerhouse outfielder, given his high-profile stature and the brand's history of honoring its athletes, we will likely see one soon. We can also expect Judge to participate in marketing for Jordan Brand.
