Baseball as a whole remains tainted with the controversy surrounding steroid use in the 90’s and early 2000s, but it’s undeniable that we witnessed some killer stickball over that ~15 year period.  Remembered most fondly among these by your author are the collection of flashbulb moments poppin’ off the bat and glove of one Ken Griffey Jr.  The Kid is widely recognized as the best player of the Nineties, and while his seemingly unlimited potential ran head (and hamstring) first into walls of injury Junior couldn’t climb, his legacy remains that of an all-time great.  Ironically enough, his absence during the peak of the early 00’s home run boom has served to solidify Griff’s reputation and few people question the legitimacy of his accomplishments.

Nike took notice of Junior’s greatness early on, and in 1996 released the first Air Griffey Max crosstrainer.  Distinctly 90’s in its construction, the shoe features a chunky sole and a ankle strap that no doubt influenced the construction of LeBron James’ second signature sneaker.  This pair rocks a varsity royal, white and black colourway with splashes of volt for contrast.  Something of a time capsule, these perfectly recreated retros are set for a May 2009 drop from Nike urban accounts like FootLocker with an MSRP of $140
