The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 is a legend in its own rite. The Kid’s signature shoe released in 1996 at the height of the explosion of the Air Max lineage. Nike is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Air Griffey Max 1 with the re-release of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Varsity Royal” iteration.
The colorway was last seen in 2016 as an ode to Ken Griffey Jr.’s Hall of Fame induction. With the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Freshwater” returning in February, it’s only right for the Swoosh to bring back this colorway as well.
After an expected early April release date was postponed, the “Varsity Royal” Air Griffey Max 1 return is set for April 27. Be sure to check the sneaker release date page for future information on everything Nike.
