Yesterday, Sneaker News showed you two colorways of the Total Griffey Max ’99 slated for retro releases next spring, a shoe that was among the last Swingman releases to generate major attention before the injury bug bit the kid hard.  The Air Griffey Max 1 will always be tops on the list owing to its impeccable styling and a marketing campaign for the ages, and that’s why when it came to creating a Ken Griffey Jr. tech update, Nike Sportswear chose the AGM1 vamp as a basis for the Nike Air Max JR.  The latest colorway was shown off by SneakerboxClyde in the right lighting so as to reveal the reflective 3M material on their clean two-toned uppers.  These navy and silver Air Max JRs are a bit calmer than the beloved OG AGM1 colorups but offer a closer match to the modern Mariners uniforms; will sneakerheads be excited about this Griffey release sans Freshwater?  Have a closer look after the jump, let us know what you think and stick with SneaNews for updates on this holiday 2011 release.

Griffey’s footwear line has enjoyed a healthy revival in the past couple of years, and it seems to be one that takes the hybrid treatment better than most. Take the Nike Air Max JR for instance, an updated issue of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 featuring a breathable torch upper and a glorious 360 Max-Air sole kit. We’ve seen this one in a handful of flavors already, with the above pictured Total Orange edition just around the corner. This creamsicle colored version of the Nike Air Max JR is officially dropping on September 17th, but they’ve started to pop up already at spots like Oneness in Kentucky. Take a full look at the Nike Air Max JR in total orange after the jump and let us know how they compare to the other colorways we’ve seen of this hybridized Griffey release.

Far too many MLB careers have been soured by talks of doping and the like, but Griffey is one of the honorable few who put up gigantic numbers without any performance enhancers. With that being said, we can forgive the man for getting a little enhancement boost in his sneakers with the Nike Air Max JR. This hybridized version from the Griffey legacy of sneakers features a full 360 Air unit on the sole and an upgraded Torch upper for extra breathability. Follow us after the jump for an additional look at the brand new Grey/Blue Glow color way of the Nike Air Max JR, available at Eastbay now.

Nike Air Max JR ‘Freshwater’ | Available @ NikeStore

Veteran slugger Jim Thome stands on the verge of joining baseball’s ’600 Club’, and though MLB’s offensive numbers have taken on an offensive connotation to many of the game’s purists, this remains one accomplishment you can’t just achieve with a little help from a doctor’s script.  In fact, the kind of sustained brilliance necessary to attain the magic 600 home runs is a big reason why Ken Griffey Jr. will be more fondly remembered than some of the guys who have also recently placed high on the career homers list.  Griffey’s irreproachable image and jaw-dropping athleticism mean that even if Sammy Sosa corks a bat in the forest and no one hears it, we all still fondly remember the late ’90s slugfest through reminders like the Nike Air Max JR.  This ‘Freshwater’ colorway recalls the original Air Griffey Max 1 from ’96 and just popped up available at NikeStore and on eBay.

Hip-hop artist Nelly recently attended a charity event in Beverly Hills, CA for a celebrity poker tournament event. The event featured both celebrities and poker pros, as Nelly, Mekhi Phifer, Kevin Hart, Paul Pierce, Irv Gotti, and more played some Hold’Em against poker pros Phil Laak , Jennifer Tilly, and more. Nelly, who isn’t a newbie to the game (he won the Rolling Stone’s Celebrity Poker Tournament) showed up to the hot outdoor even wearing the Nike Air Max JR in the Grey/Volt colorway. It certainly kept him cool throughout, as he enjoyed a days worth of table games (poker and ping-pong) without breaking a sweat. Check out Nelly and the Air Max JR after the jump and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more celebrity feet coverage!
