Baseball and sneakers never really went hand-in-hand, unless Ken Griffey Jr. was the topic. No other Major League baseball player has had a signature line of sneakers as powerful and long-lasting as that of Griffey’s, which is what makes the Nike Griffey line all the more special. Nike Sportswear just extended the Griffey life plan with the introduction of the Air Max JR – the Air Griffey Max 1-inspired 360 Max-Air cushioned athletic training shoe that was first seen on Sneaker News in September of last year. You can find both Griffey releases at Nike retailers like Extra Butter soon so check out the great baseball-inspired gallery of images below and let us know if you like prefer the Air Griffey Max 1 over the Air Max JR. You can also find either of the new Freshwater Griffey releases now on eBay.
