Nevermind the groundhog – Opening Day of Major League Baseball marks the start of the Spring season, so to coincide with today’s wide launch of the 2012 season is a look back at one of the rarest and undiscovered Player Exclusives we’ve ever seen. Check out this sick Nike Air Griffey Max 1 Player Exclusive made for Ken Griffey Jr. for the 1996 MLB All-Star Game; at just 26 years of age, Griffey was one of the most (if not the most) feared hitter in the game, earning a multitude of awards and consideration an a yearly basis while making the All-Star Game his summer time-share – he was pretty much guaranteed a spot. This PE, brought to us by Nike sample monger youbetgrish, features the Air Griffey Max 1 in a unique glossy patent leather-like finish – remember it was the Air Jordan XI of that same year that introduced the patent leather to the athletic shoe. Check out the extra angles of this baseball treat and let us know if you want Nike to whip up some more Air Griffey Max 1 colorways! Photos via sole-u

Nike Air Max Griffey Fury – Black – White – Action Green | Release Date

January 13th, 2012 by | 8 comments

nike air max griffey fury black white action green release date 3 Nike Air Max Griffey Fury   Black   White   Action Green | Release Date

With all the success the Nike Griffey signature line has been garnering over the last few years, one would be wise to not expect Griffey to disappear from Nike product lines anytime soon. One way to keep the legacy going is to re-release the original models, like the Total Griffey Max ’99, which we gave you release dates on earlier this week. Another way is to re-hash some older classics with contemporary styling, and Nike certainly did that with the Air Max JR and the upcoming Air Max Griffey Fury. It utilizes the present-day full-length Max Air unit and Hyperfuse upper while adapting the design lines and curves from the Air Diamond Fury from the 90′s, all of which converges at one point to create the Nike Air Max Griffey Fury. Expect the Black/White-Action Green release to hit stores this March 3rd, so check out the additional angles below and let us know what else you think Nike has in store for the future of Air Griffey.

Nike Air Max Griffey Fury – Upcoming Colorways

October 26th, 2011 by | 13 comments

nike air max griffey fury upcoming colorways km summary Nike Air Max Griffey Fury   Upcoming Colorways

Just yesterday Sneaker News showed you a Royal/Volt/White ‘Sprite’-ish colorway of the Nike Air Max Griffey Fury. If you’d rather not obey your thirst for super-bright colorways, here’s a look at two upcoming Fury colorways that are both Mariners-specific and easier on the eyes; the Teal/Black colorway boldly represents Griffey Jr.’s beginning in the Pacific Northwest by ‘retro’-ing the OG colorways of the Diamond Fury, and the second Black/Silver/Neon green is simply a classic colorway that experiences a welcome nod from sneakerheads of all types. Aside from the ‘wow’ factor that most Griffeys tend to possess, the Air Max Griffey Fury is as comfortable as it is ‘rockable’, as it supported by 360-degree Max Air. More images of both colorways await you below, so take a good look and let us know what you think. via kumastock.

Nike Air Max JR – ‘White Sox’ + ‘Cincinnati Reds’ | Release Reminder

October 21st, 2011 by | 8 comments

nike air max jr white sox reds release reminder Nike Air Max JR   White Sox + Cincinnati Reds | Release Reminder

When we associate a superstar player with one team, seeing said star wear another jersey is a rather tough pill to swallow. Griffey in a White Sox uni, Patrick Ewing in a Sonics/Magic jersey, heck, even MJ in Wizards Blue/Gold was a bit funky. Ken Griffey Jr. will always be tied to White/Teal Mariners colors, and although he poetically ended his career by returning to Seattle, we can’t overlook his years as a Cincinnati Red and his short span with the Southside White Sox. Just yesterday, Sneaker News gave you notice about the Cincinnati Reds Air Max JR releasing in November, but it looks like some retailers, like MrRSports, will drop them early tomorrow, alongside the ‘White Sox’ edition (which will drop on Nikestore). Still not sure which one you like better? Check out the detailed shots below and let us know your pick, and be sure to snag one of the two (or both) tomorrow at Nike Sportswear retailers or on eBay.

Nike Air Max JR ‘Cincinnati Reds’ – November 2011

October 20th, 2011 by | 8 comments

nike air max jr tonal red november 2011 summary Nike Air Max JR Cincinnati Reds   November 2011

The recent release of the Nike Air Max JR have taken an unofficial formulaic approach of tonal colorways attributed to the teams that Ken Griffey Jr. played for. The last tonal-black pair we showed you was dubbed the ‘White Sox’, although Jr.’s time with the South Side was rather short. Here’s another look at the Tonal Red ‘Cincinnati Reds’ colorway – one we showed you back in March; it features a sinister Varsity Red covering the entire shoe with a white swoosh on the the toe as well as on accents on the lace-hoops. If the tonal team theme continues, how awesome would an all-Freshwater pair of JRs be? Check out the additional shots of this November 2011 release below and let us know what you think.

Nike Air Griffey Max II – Anthracite – Wolf Grey – Neo Turquoise

September 30th, 2011 by | 5 comments

nike air griffey max ii anthracite wolf grey neo turquoise summary Nike Air Griffey Max II   Anthracite   Wolf Grey   Neo Turquoise

The Nike Air Griffey Max II returned in 2011, and although it didn’t have quite the impact that the Air Griffey Max 1 did, the Max II is still considered to be one of the best Nike Retro releases of the year. This new Anthracite/Wolf Grey-Neo Turquoise colorway has a bit of a throwback Mariners flavor to it, but all in all this upcoming late-October release has all the makings of a hot commodity thanks to the season-specific two-toned grey colorway and the acute splashes of Neo Turquoise on the swoosh logo and Max Air unit. Expect these to start hitting Nike Sportswear retailers toward the end of October as these have a set release date of October 29th.
