Jackie Robinson’s legacy is still going strong as people continue to honor his memory more than 60 years after he helped to smash the color barriers of Major League Baseball. Robinson was recently honored by having his name used for the rotunda entrance of the New York Mets’ new Citi Field and also on a special pack of Nike Blazers that we saw last week. Apparently, Nike had more up their sleeves to pay tribute to the man, and this time with more of a baseball connection. The Air Max Griffey Swingman Remix, which is an altered version of the Griffey Max II, has been re-designed with a Jackie Robinson theme, incorporating a royal blue/grey/white color scheme to capture the Brooklyn Dodgers feel, as well as a few other personal touches. Robinson’s number 42 appears in red on the back of both heels and the date “4-15-47” is featured on the insole to commemorate the day Jackie first made history. There is no word yet on a release, but stay tuned and we’ll keep you up to date on that info. Via TheShoeGame.
