Prince Fielder won his second MLB Home Run Derby Monday night, and the only player to do it thrice proved during his dominant 1990s that a sweet swing could surpass the strength of visibly powerful guys like ‘king’ Cecil.  Ken Griffey Jr. has enjoyed longevity beyond every power hitter of his generation, and young sneakerheads who never saw him hit a round-tripper know to tip their caps in respect thanks to Nike Sportswear’s revival of his signature crosstrainers.  Junior’s resurrection has coincided with Penny Hardaway’s revival, a bigger fanbase for trainers than ever before and new technologies like Hyperfuse and Nike+-equipped 360-degree Max Air soles.  All of these factors come together on what’s effectively Griffey’s answer to the Air Penny V, a brand new model that derives its lines from the previous models without borrowing from them explicitly as with the Air Max JR and Diamond Fury hybrids.  The Nike Air Griffey Max 360 is a fitting addition to this legacy, a 5/8-cut midtop with sweeping curves as smooth as the Swingman loop that marks their lateral heels.  A ‘Fresh Water’ Air Griffey Max 360 joins several other colorways in photos after the jump, so click through to see which one you like best and stick with Sneaker News for release info as we approach the spring 2013 debut.  via CK
