Nike Continues To Celebrate Jackie Robinson’s Game-Changing Legacy With The Air Griffey 1 Baseball Cleat

Nike Continues To Celebrate Jackie Robinson’s Game-Changing Legacy With The Air Griffey 1 Baseball Cleat

It’s been 75 years since Jack “Jackie” Roosevelt Robinson broke professional baseball’s color barrier in the United States of America. To celebrate the occasion, NIKE, Inc. has produced a number of footwear options inspired by the famed Brooklyn Dodger.

In addition to a Nike Dunk Low clad in anniversary and Robinson-commemorating details, the North American sportswear behemoth has prepped a special edition of Ken Griffey Jr.‘s signature baseball cleat, the Air Griffey 1. Akin to the aforementioned basketball sneaker, the made-for-the-mound style dons a “Racer Blue” and “Coconut Milk” color combination across its upper, with the former tone landing atop handfuls of high-quality leather panels. Additionally, several quotes attributed to the Georgia-native are printed onto the vibrant blue-colored overlays. “42,” Robinson’s number, replaced Griffey Jr.’s “24” on the lockdown straps found near the collar. Visible Air Max cushioning is abandoned below in favor of a foam and enclosed Zoom Air combination set to deliver responsive cushioning on the baseball field. Lastly, aggressive spikes round out the pair.

Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and shop your pair right now via Nike.com for $140 USD.
