Nike is treating the Ken Griffey Jr. signature line much like it is the Nike Air Penny line. Both players, who are highly regarded in their respective sports, still maintain a cult following years after their prime seasons. The Air Penny line has been mashed up to produce some notable hybrids like the Air 1/2 Cent and Zoom Rookie LWP, but the Griffey line has yet to see a multi-signature hybrid shoe (but stay tuned for 2012). Shoes like the Air Max Griffey Fury is a mere reconstruction of the Air Diamond Fury, with the re-make featuring a Hyperfuse-laden upper with a 360 Max Air unit with a silhouette similar to the Air Max JR. This upcoming Royal/Volt/White colorway (we’ll refer to it as the ‘Sprite’) is set for a Spring 2012 release, so check out the extra images below and let us know what you think. via kumastock.
