Ken Griffey Jr. is one of the best baseball players of all time and has some impressive statistics to back up that claim. Griffey hit 630 home runs and was a 10 time gold glove recipient in his 22 years in the major leagues. The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 were one of the few sneakers made for baseball athletes that could be worn outside the baseball field. This weekend will be your chance to get your hands on them once again.
The black/laser crimson/atomic mango colorway will definitely stand out on your feet. The crimson is what you see right away on these sneakers. The outsole and upper are covered in crimson. The midsole, tongue, and part of the upper is black. The atomic mango is what is seen the least on the sneaker, but it is enough to brighten it up. The Nike swoosh outline, laces, and the number 24 (Griffey’s number) are in atomic orange.
Have to love the strap on these kicks as well. If you want to lace your feet up with the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 black/laser crimson/atomic mango colorway, they will be releasing on May 9th, 2014.
