Nike Air Griffey Max 1 ‘Freshwater’ – Release Reminder

nike air griffey max 1 freshwater reminder Nike Air Griffey Max 1 Freshwater   Release Reminder

Many Nike Retro releases garner as much excitement as new releases do, and even with a plethora of great sneakers dropping tomorrow, the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 in the OG ‘Freshwater’ colorway will be regarded, by some, to be one of the best Retro releases of the year. Ken Griffey Jr.’s star legacy has been overshadowed by a number of controversial MLB stories concerning PEDs, lockouts, monster contracts, and so forth, so allowing for the Nike Griffey comeback was one of the best decisions by Nike. These will certainly be a hot commodity for the remainder of the summer and into the school year, as will this sick Vandal-A matching t-shirt, inspired by the Da Vinci Diagram. Be on the lookout tonight at midnight on NikeStore and tomorrow as they will officially hit stores (although they have been spotted at many retailers earlier). We’ve got more images of the shoe after the jump, as well as some looks at the Vandal-A t-shirt in two colors, so check them out and if you can’t wait, get a pair of the Griffeys right now from sneakerpost on Bay.

Nike Air Griffey Max 1 – Black – Freshwater | Hitting Retailers

By this point in July back in 1995, the Seattle Mariners were all but eliminated from playoff contention, trailing the American League West leading California Angels (of, well, California) by as many as 13 games before mounting an 11th hour comeback to win the division crown.  The timing couldn’t have been better, as that September as the Ms were climbing atop the AL West, the King County electorate rejected a small sales tax increase to fund a new stadium.  But after Ken Griffey Jr. scored the ALDS-winning run versus the Yankees on a play we’ve come to know as ‘The Double’, the county’s elected council moved to cooperate with the team’s ownership, which directly resulted in the construction of Safeco Field.  That ’95 season also cemented Griffey as a household name and made Nike sufficiently confident that the very next year, they ran ‘Griffey for President’ on the platform of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 in this original colorway.  This quintessentially mid/late ’90s trainer will hit Nike Sportswear retailers like Millennium Shoes on August 10th and you can already find pairs available to buy right now on eBay.

If the Seattle Mariners one day change their uniform and logo colors, then their 1993-born palette will be as strongly identified with Ken Griffey Jr. as the Seahawks’ old garb is with Steve Largent.  Griffey played a huge role in making the perinneal cellar dwellers into contenders in the mid/late ’90s and though they failed to repeat on 1995′s miracle year the following season, ’96 was among Junior’s finest, with a 49-HR season foreshadowing three consecutive AL-leading totals to close out the decade.  He crushed the ball that year, ‘ran for president’ and played some of the 90s best center field while wearing the Nike Air Griffey Max 1, which has returned with its Deep Emerald color renamed to the more familiar (at least at this point in history) Freshwater.  Click through to see more of the OG Air Griffey Max 1 and look for a pair at Nike Sportswear retailers like jbseller on eBay.

There’s been talk of the Seattle Mariners making a play at free agent to be Prince Fielder because aside from that record-breaking 2001 season, the team simply hasn’t been the same in its post-Ken Griffey Jr. era.  Junior combined with Seattle heroes Randy Johnson, Jay Buhner and a young Alex Rodriguez to earn the Mariners their first playoff birth and an upset victory over the Yankees in the 1995 ALDS.  Griffey scored the winning run in the decisive Game 5 on an Edgar Martinez double and though the M’s were unable to get past Cleveland and earn a World Series birth, The Kid’s star was born on the national stage and Nike would respond with an even stronger marketing push.  After that memorable ’95 season’s Air Diamond Fury, the Swoosh moved to rename his signature line starting with the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 in this colorway promoted with the ‘Junior in ’96′ campaign.  Click through to see its OG-true Freshwater, black and white palette and get ready for these to hit Nike Sportswear retailers next month.  via in52

If you’re not old enough to have had the opportunity to watch Michael Jordan play, chances are you’ve never seen Ken Griffey Jr. in action. Griffey played in the pros up until 2010, but he wasn’t the swagtastic home-run swatter for most of the decade. It was during his Seattle days that he gained prominence as an unusual power-hitter (he was much smaller than guys like McGwire and Sosa), but remember that he was also quite deft with the glove as center field roamer. Even if you didn’t have the opportunity to watch the man with the sweetest lefty power-swing of all time, you can still enjoy Nike Griffeys as they offer a different sneaker style not seen in runners, Jordans, or basketball kicks. If you need a reminder again, the OG Black/Freshwater colorway of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 has a set release date of August 10th, so check out the new images below and let us know if these mid-August drops are a must-have for you. via kicks-crew

Some would argue that the Colorado Rockies and Florida Marlins represented the epitome of early ’90s baseball aesthetics thanks to their use of unprecedented colors, but around the same time those teams were added to Major League Baseball in 1993, another team that’d been around a bit longer decided to change up their look as well.  The Seattle Mariners switched from the royal and gold look they’d sported since the team’s inception in 1977, to a teal-accented navy and silver look that better fit the team’s oceanic theme.  And along with this switch came the opportunity for a range of Ken Griffey Jr. trainers in the same color scheme, one that served to keep Nike’s early-’90s exuberance alive while allowing for some progress.  The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 came 3 years later, the above pictured colorway a near perfect reproduction of the ’96 original, save its use a color-inverted midsole plus Freshwater on the heel Swoosh instead of red.  Click through for a closer look at the ‘Mariners Emerald’ Air Griffey Max 1s via an AGS video featuring a different kind of ‘training’, and stick with Sneaker News for the exact release date.
