As the baseball world wallows in the aftermath of the Jose Bautista and Rougned Odor incident, and the politics of the sport that brought about this now famous sparring bout, a better time can be recalled with Nike’s re-release of Ken Griffey Jr.’s first signature shoe – the Nike Air Griffey Max 1.
In the 1990’s, where there was no question how critical America’s Greatest Pastime was to global culture, Ken Griffey was one of its biggest stars. His off the field presence was huge, too, so much in fact that styles like the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Varsity Royal” stand the test of time with ease.
The latest retro of the shoe is available now for $150 at select retailers globally. Take a closer look below.
