The Kid’s Nike Air Griffey Max 1 is finally coming back after over a 12 year hiatus. One of the most memorable Baseball sneakers of all time, if not the most memorable, the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 captured the essence of a time when Ken Griffey Jr. was the most dominant player in Baseball. A natural and amazing talent, there was no fastball the a young Griffey Jr. could not hit and there was no fly ball that he could not track down in Center. Although injuries eventually took their toll on a what could have been an even more impressive career, Ken Griffey Jr. and his Nike sneakers are legends.
As part of their Nike Air Griffey Max 1 releases, Nike is set to release the OG Varsity Royal Nike Air Griffey Max 1. The Varsity Royal Nike Air Griffey Max 1 features a Royal upper, with White, Black, and Volt accents. Junior’s number 24 is emblazoned on the ankle strap as well.
The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 in Varsity Royal is set to release in May of 2009.
