It’s clear that the Nike Griffey Line is getting the Nike Penny treatment; every shoe, multiple colorways…hybrid shoe? A Griffey hybrid made up of multiple sig models seems probable but here’s a look at a hybrid that uses the Air Griffey Max 1; the Nike Air Max JR, debuting in Summer 2011, features the Air Griffey Max 1 silhouette but features lightweight Torch material on the upper and 360 Max Air running unit (not a basketball-specific unit). Quite strange for a mid-cut shoe to feature the running-specific Max Air cushioning unit – would you go running in a mid-cut shoe? Three colorways we can surely expect is black/red, white/chlorine blue-grey, and one with a Volt Air unit with grey trim and a blue/grey mudguard. Gone is the ankle-strap from the Air Griffey Max 1 as well. So what’s the verdict? Take a look at the three colorways after the jump and stick with Sneaker News for more info regarding this upcoming shoe, and let us know what you think of the Griffey-hybrid design. via deftronic.
