Ken Griffey Jr. may have retired from the game of baseball earlier this year, but what he meant to the game will never be forgotten. Neither will what he inspired in the form of baseball cleats and training shoes. Alongside shoes like the Air Griffey Max GD II and the rest of the Griffey Max signature line, The Kid also sparked the Diamond Fury line of baseball cleats and baseball inspired training shoes.

The Nike 95 Diamond Fury Retro is one of those that became a favorite amongst players when it initially hit major league feet in the mid-nineties. In its era specific detailing, the Diamond Fury Retro features a mix of black patent and synthetic leather, and a lacing system reminiscent of the Jordan 11. A midfoot strap keeps your foot locked in place as you’re rounding the bases or chasing down a fly ball in the outfield, and the unforgettable Nike Diamond Fury logo on the tongue serves as a reminder of some of the greats that wore this style back in the day.
