The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 renaissance continues. Ken Griffey Jr. was a baseball and style icon in the mid-90s thanks to his on-field performance and signature backwards hat during the Home Run Derby and batting practice. So when Nike let him know he was worthy of a signature sneaker in 1996, Griffey wanted the design to be as memorable as his home run trot. The 20th anniversary of the silhouette brings the return of a number of iconic colorways. We’ll be seeing the “Freshwater” Mariners vibe later this April, and now this Sprite-like pair featuring Varsity Royal and Volt will be arriving on May 24th for $150 USD. Originally released in 2009, the vibrant look features a Varsity Royal backdrop while Volt accents hit the branding and visible air unit. Stay tuned for more release date updates right here on Sneaker News.
