Ken Griffey Jr. currently sits at number five on the list of all-time home run leaders with 630. The 40-year-old is nearing the end of one of the greatest careers the game of baseball has ever seen. One thing that has always separated “The Kid” from the rest of that list (aside from having some of the most memorable shoes in baseball) is that no matter where he has played, he’s always been a fan favorite. From the time he set foot on the field with his first signature, the Air Griffey Max, he’s been looked up to by both young kids and parents alike.
Nike Training recently released the Air Griffey Max GD II in a couple of colorways that couldn’t have come at a better time. Jr. has returned to the Mariners to finish out his incredible baseball career in the city of Seattle where it all began. Although his home-run robbing skills may not be up to the unforgettable moments of his earlier years, his sneakers, like his home-run robbing skills, still rank near the top of nearly everyone’s most memorable lists. Now you can add another piece of baseball history to your collection.
