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.
