Ken Griffey Jr. may be gone from the game of baseball, but he’ll always have a place in the hearts of fans. Known as “The Kid,” Griffey retired from baseball #5 on the all-time home run list and #14 in career RBIs. Most importantly, Ken has left behind a legacy that is not tainted by the era he played in. Like Griffey himself, his signature Nike sneaker line retains its fanfare despite Ken’s absence from the field. One of the most beloved models is the Air Griffey Max I, a shoe that is back in a popular colorway this month.
Released in limited quantities as a Quickstrike earlier in the year, the “Platinum” Griffey Max I returns to Eastbay this month. The shoe features a Raider-esque metallic platinum and black look. In addition to the synthetic leather upper, a full-length Air unit and rubber outsole do the job below. Don’t miss your second opportunity to own this future classic.
