After a relatively brief period that started when the Air Foamposite One hit in early 2009 in this unmistakable purple shade, Nike Sportswear has dialed down the frequency of its ‘Eggplant’ releases.  The most recent sighting was on a pair of Zoom Rookie LWPs, an Air Penny mashup that has obvious connections to the original matte metallic purple release.  And from the Penny Hardaway hybrid we move toward another 1990’s Nike legend for a new Nike Air Max JR that might make you wonder how many records Ken Griffey Jr. could have set as a member of the Colorado Rockies.  The ‘Eggplant’ Air Max JR reminds us of the 1998 Home Run Derby where Junior nearly doubled his second place foe, a guy in Vinny Castilla who himself had benefitted majorly from playing in the Mile High City’s notoriously thin air.  Click through to get some more angles of this iridescent purple design and look for a pair today at NSW retailers like Foot Locker.
