Vladimir Guerrero Jr. at only 22 years old signed a deal with Jordan Brand yesterday. Guerrero, who became the youngest player to ever win the All-Star game MVP, blasted a 3rd inning HR to left-center and immediately got the crowd on their feet just like he has done all year. Known for playing with custom cleats and gold chains, we can expect plenty of iconic Jordans turned into cleats for the young star.

Vladimir’s .332 Batting Average and 73 RBIs puts him atop the league, while his 28 HRs are second to only Shohei Ohtani. With so much potential on the diamond, Guerrero Jr. joins the group of young players looking to elevate the excitement, fun, and style of a league aiming to appeal to a wider and younger fanbase.
His debut At-Bat as a Jordan Brand athlete set a strong first impression. He wore “Fearless UNC Chicago” cleats while leading the AL to a 5-2 win behind his 468-foot home run.
Vlad looks to continue his MVP caliber contributions in the second half of the season as his Blue Jays make a push for the Red Sox’s top spot in the AL East. We’ll look for some Retro Jordans in the tunnels.
