Ken Griffey Jr. may be giving it up after 22 long seasons with 3 different teams, but his Swingman Series with Nike will forever live on. We all knew Griffey’s retirement was coming soon, having started in the MLB at the age 19 and now being 40, but maybe Nike was put on to a thing or two before the public. Nike continues paying homage to The Kid with this new rendition of the Air Griffey Max 1, the official kicks that started it all. This specific edition of the retro baseball shoe features a Metallic Platinum base boxed in by a black mid-foot and a black sole unit. Additional accents of metallic platinum appear around the openings displaying the Air sole while the Swoosh’s along the toe and heel jump back to black. This Metallic Platinum/Black 

Nike Air Griffey max 1 is one of those shoes that you cant help but stare at. The shimmery upper and ahead of its time design takes care of hogging your attention span very nicely. In addition, Nike will be offering a matching t-shirt and cap to complete the set, which has released through quickstrike Nike accounts this past 4th of July weekend.
