Ken Griffey Jr. is considered by many to be amongst the greatest home run hitters of all time. Playing in a generation marred by performance enhancing drugs, Griffey is believed to have steered clear of any drug use and as such, holds a special place in the hearts and minds of sports purists. In addition to his power hitting excellence, Griffey’s sneaker game and partnership with Nike helped to bring baseball training footwear into the industry spotlight. Today, with the retro craze in full effect, Griffey’s line has been making a comeback. The latest addition to that line is the original Nike Griffey 1 Max in a Navy/White/Volt colorway that will surely make fans of both the Seattle Mariners and Seahawks happy. The colorway translates perfectly onto the original Griffey signature model and includes the “volt” piping that have made the Seahawks’ uniforms one of the flashiest in football. The high top training shoe features the iconic Griffey designs, vintage Air Max bubbles and a Velcro ankle strap with Griffey’s familiar #24.
The Nike Griffey Max 1 Navy/White/Volt colorway drops this Saturday, May 4 at Foot Locker and Footlocker.com for $140.
