NIKE, Inc. has never shied away from retroing some of the most beloved silhouettes in its storied catalog, but it’s arguably spent more time down “memory lane” throughout 2020 than previous years. The year began with a reissue of the first-ever Air Jordan Women’s and it’s moved along with both releases and rumors of favorites from Nike Sportswear and Basketball. While slated to return to retailers next year, news of an Air Griffey Max 1 “Freshwater” retro recently hit the Internet to great fanfare.

Last seen in 2016 to coincide with Ken Griffey Jr.’s induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, the Seattle Mariners-reminiscent sneaker harkens back to a golden age in the Swoosh’s footwear history: the 1990s. Yet, the predominantly-two-toned pair has immediately sold out every time it’s been reissued since its 1996 debut. And understandably so. In addition to being associated to one of baseball’s “it” players, the model fused Nike Air Max technology into a design much more statement-making than most running options. Lockdown ankle straps with embossed “NIKE” text and can’t-be-missed “24” accents captured the era’s attitude, as did the robust sole unit. When coupled with a “White/Black/Freshwater/Varsity Red,” these design choices made for an arrangement that’s lasted the test of time.

An official Nike.com release date is still unknown, but this Air Griffey Max 1 is slated to retro in 2021.

In other news relating to Swoosh retros, the Air Total Max Uptempo is rumored to return soon in a “Black/Volt” colorway.
