Nike Air Max Jr. – White/Chlorine Blue

words // Brandon Richard

Though Ken Griffey Jr. has been gone from the game of baseball for nearly a year, his Nike signature sneakers only seem to be gaining momentum. Over the weekend, we saw the return of his Air Griffey Max II in the popular “Fresh Water” colorway. Joining that shoe is an all-new colorway of the Air Max Jr., a revamped version of the Air Griffey Max that employs updated Nike technology like Torch construction and a 360-Max Air unit.

This pair features a white-on-white Torch textile upper with Chlorine Blue working key accent points like the tongue, forefoot Swoosh border and a mesh underlayer on the quarter panels. Also done in Chlorine is the 360-degree Max Air unit below. You can pick up this new look today at Eastbay.

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.
