Chicago and Jordan Brand are tied at the hip, now and forever. And in joint effort Jordan Brand and Champs recently honored seven fixtures of Chicago based on their commitment to the community. Under the banner of RE2PECT, the event coincided with the launch of three Derek Jeter-inspired Jordan silhouettes this past week.
