This year Ken Griffey Jr. decided to hang up the cleats for good. The Kid’s legendary career was illustrious on all accounts. You could say he was in large part responsible for the boom in popularity of fitted hats throughout the mid-nineties that continues on today but nobody can argue his influence on baseball specific footwear.
While Nike re-released the Air Griffey Max in a number of colorways over the last year or so, some would say his best shoe was his second signature. The Griffey Max 2 was Nike’s reward to Jr. in 1998 after his best season on the baseball diamond. Next spring the Nike Air Griffey Max 2 will return in the original Black and Emerald colorway to Eastbay.
For now though, hopefully this wallpaper will keep The Kid’s fans satisfied.
