During Sneaker News’ exclusive preview of the Summer 2011 releases, you might’ve seen the Air Max JR, a new Nike hybrid model combining the Air Griffey Max 1 siilhouette and Nike’s latest technology. Featuring a 360-Max Air unit and the super-breathable and super-lightweight Torch upper, the Air Max JR gives the classic baseball shoe a new-age twist while keeping the soul intact. The Air Griffey Max 1 is undoubtedly one of Nike’s best Retro releases of all time, and Nike clearly has plans to elongate the Max 1’s life alongside the release of the Air Griffey Max II. With 360 Air and Torch, there’s no doubt that these will be immensely comfortable – but how would they look when worn casually? Check out some of the upcoming colorways of the Air Max JR after the jump and expect them to hit stores during the Fal 2011 season.
