Nike Air Max JR ‘Eggplant’

After a relatively brief period that started when the Air Foamposite One hit in early 2009 in this unmistakable purple shade, Nike Sportswear has dialed down the frequency of its ‘Eggplant’ releases.  The most recent sighting was on a pair of Zoom Rookie LWPs, an Air Penny mashup that has obvious connections to the original matte metallic purple release.  And from the Penny Hardaway hybrid we move toward another 1990′s Nike legend for a new Nike Air Max JR that might make you wonder how many records Ken Griffey Jr. could have set as a member of the Colorado Rockies.  The ‘Eggplant’ Air Max JR reminds us of the 1998 Home Run Derby where Junior nearly doubled his second place foe, a guy in Vinny Castilla who himself had benefitted majorly from playing in the Mile High City’s notoriously thin air.  Click through to get some more angles of this iridescent purple design and look for a pair today at NSW retailers like Foot Locker.

Cannot find these anywhere, none of my local shops have them, no google results, nothing on ISS. ....

pics no bueno! need an outside pic; they probably look better in person, and I can't imagine how the toe box will look after a couple of creases from wear. Not a good look-

Eh...not bad. I like the look of these. The pics make them look good with a dark background. I wonder what they look like in the light tho? Fit wise these are GREAT. I got the AM95 volt colorway and they r super comfy. Most of all Griffeys are a staple in the 206! (Seattle)

these suck, only eggplants that are true neck breakers are the flightposites and the penny foams.

...agreed,and it just doesnt look like it provides much support.After a few wears,it probably looses its shape.

Personally, I'd rather go skydiving with a pillowcase than be caught rockin' these. But hey, to each his own
