Legendary center fielder Ken Griffey Jr. became a baseball icon in a Seattle Mariners uniform, but also spent a healthy portion of his career back in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio as a Red. The numbers were never quite the same, but those Cincy colors breathed some new life into the Kid’s Nike signature sneaker line. Available to purchase now is the Air Griffey Max I in a colorway that wasn’t a part of the original run, but still rates as one of the best pairs to ever feature the Griffey name.
This pair is dressed in varsity red nubuck with a white leather underlay running across the side panel. Black takes care of the cross strap, lace panels, toe box Swoosh and inner liner. A white polyurethane midsole houses full-length Air, while a black rubber outsole finishes off below.
