Nike Air Max Jr. – White/Chlorine Blue

words // Brandon Richard

Though Ken Griffey Jr. has been gone from the game of baseball for nearly a year, his Nike signature sneakers only seem to be gaining momentum. Over the weekend, we saw the return of his Air Griffey Max II in the popular “Fresh Water” colorway. Joining that shoe is an all-new colorway of the Air Max Jr., a revamped version of the Air Griffey Max that employs updated Nike technology like Torch construction and a 360-Max Air unit.

This pair features a white-on-white Torch textile upper with Chlorine Blue working key accent points like the tongue, forefoot Swoosh border and a mesh underlayer on the quarter panels. Also done in Chlorine is the 360-degree Max Air unit below. You can pick up this new look today at Eastbay.

Available: Nike Air Max Jr. – White/White-Chlorine Blue

    still confuse…is these intended for Basketball?

  • airjking:

    i’m confused on these too, like why the would make them when they already tried with the swingman remix which were whack. i can tell you what they are intended for tho . . . they are intended to make money for nike.

  • vdreamarkitex:

    The reason most ppl don’t know what to categorize this pair of shoes as is because they are the only series ( and specifically the only pair) that actually delivered on the original promise – cross training. Most people never actually saw a sneaker that actually allowed you to lift weights, go running (I mean a real 2-3 mile run), AND play basketball or tennis all in the same shoe w/out frequently twisting your ankle. While there’s no such thing as a perfect shoe, this pair covers that functional palette I just mentioned, all while look stylish. I basically ONLY purchase these shoes as sneakers. I have GAM responsibilities so, I am rarely spending money on things like sneakers. When I do, I can’t hope to find a do-it-all pair that still look good in casual settings unless I roll w/ these.
    My Pop is 72, and now he wants a pair, and he’s never had a pair of sneakers over $50 bucks!

    I still love going from the bench to the treadmill to the court in my Jr’s and switching to my new ones when swapping into my street clothes.
