Throwback Thursday: Nike Air Griffey Max III

Nike Air Griffey Max III

For the past 20 years, has there been a better baseball player than Ken Griffey Jr? More than 600 clean HR’s, 13 All Star appearances, 10 Gold Gloves, and a swing so clean it became his logo. We’ll leave the official debate for ESPN, but when it comes to footwear, no other baseball player has had as solid of a line as Junior.

To celebrate Griff’s 20 years in the big league this year, the Griffey Max 1 and Swingman Remix were brought out, but there are still some shoes from the line we wouldn’t mind seeing return.

More than just an aesthetically unique shoe, the Nike Air Griffey Max III offers incredibly comfortable cushioning and stability. Heel and forefoot Max Air provides the soft ride while a Footscape-esque lacing system plus cross strap locks your foot into the shoe.

Beyond the way the shoe looks and performs, history of footwear is so often written by the man who wore them and what was accomplished. In 1998, Griffey was coming off an MVP season and followed up again with 56 homeruns but came up 1 short of matching his prior year pushing 146 RBI’s.

Are there any other Griffey’s you would like to see return? Click here to get a better look at these as well as to let us know what you think.
