The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 has enjoyed a renaissance in 2013, appearing in a handful of new colorways after last year’s quieter outing. Here’s another example of the AGM1 rendered in a fresh new style, as Junior’s first namesake Nikes gets the DMP treatment. In other words, this Air Griffey Max 1 comes in a palette with tons of momentum from last year, and stays in step with other recent AGM1s by going with an atypical material mix–in this case, metallic leather and suede. Let us know how these compare to the other colorways on the horizon and stick with Sneaker News for release dates.

Slowly murdering a classic. Kill the patent leather Nike. These would be dope with all black suede with just the gold accents.
Mane these hoes BUSSIN! I'm grabbin these & I aint never really been in a rush 2 grab a pair of Griffey's
Bring the Volts back or how about dropping the underrated Griffey 3s for the first time? My Volts were defective and it's been almost impossible to find a legitimate size 12.5 again. Can't believe they keep dropping all these ugly colorways and weird mashups with 360 Air Max soles and we can't get the Griffey 3s or the Diamond Furys retroed even once. Even the Nike Griffey Total Max came misshapen and without the OG colors. Those were badass in OG form and extremely comfortable.
"Killed", like Knifed the shoe in the heart. These recent releases been having a certain color flaw in each of them that I'm just not digging, and the sole is what's wrong wit this one.
Glad I still got a fresh pair of fresh waters at home. Where's the GRIFFEY inspiration? Making a mockery out of one of my top 5 favorite kicks. Hurts.
I was pretty much done with Griffeys after I got the "Cincinnati Reds". I absolutely hated the silver ones, but these.....idk.....I kinda like. Guess it's the Saints fan in me. Lol.
Or the white midsoles Fresh Water PE versions. Forgot those. So many awesome colorways and shoes tied to Griffey that get ignored. If you don't think Griffey shoes can sell that's one thing..but to drop dozens a year that look like bad fakes and leave OG classics untouched doesn't make much sense.
@OverTimeOften I agree bro. More powers to those copping but Im just not digging these new colorways. Like I said before, they need to get back to basics
@JFresh_136 Agreed. I said the same thing
Silver and black ones are tough. I got a pair. I call those the Al Davis, got that raider nation feel. Dub these the Tom Benson's. Jimmy Graham for 6.
@DiPdeeeZ like the red ones ....
Yeah my dude! Might call em Archie Mannings or something. Still got my freshwaters on ice. Just waiting for a sunny day.
