If you’ve developed a rejuvenation fandom for Ken Griffey Jr., you can thank Nike Sportswear and the retro releases of the Nike Griffey line for that. Continuing forward with the Nike Griffey signature models will be a bit tricky considering that outside of the first two Air Griffeys, the rest of the signature line was underwhelming compared to the iconic designs of the first. Ken Griffey Jr. made baseball-inspired trainers ‘cool’, and the upcoming retro release of the Nike Total Griffey Max ’99 might add some ‘umph’ to the tail-end of the Griffey signature series. You can expect two colorways of the Max Air cushioned Total Griffey Max ’99 to hit stores this coming Summer 2012 season, so check them out below and let us know what you think. via TSG.
The grape-like colorway is pretty dope, but I'd like to see more. Also I want to see high-quality pictures. These look pretty dope so far.
