You never had to be a baseball fan to appreciate the beauty of Ken Griffey Jr.’s swing. The fluid motion that sent shots deep into the stands and left pitchers in a constant state of frustration was so pretty in fact, that Nike made it to The Kid what the Jumpman is to MJ. The Swingman logo starts the story of Junior, but it’s his illustrious time on the diamond and the kicks he rocked that made us remember it. Tomorrow, his Nike Air Griffey Max II drops in a “Fresh Water” colorway, continuing the legacy that started a new chapter last year. This one drops at select retailers, including Nice Kicks, for $140.
