Nike introduced its latest Air Griffey Max 1, which is modified and recreated with “Aqua” colorway treatment.
The activewear powerhouse designed the shoes to mimic the palette of the American professional baseball team, Seattle Mariners, as Ken Griffey Jr. spent his maximum years playing with the team.
In September last year, the brand debuted an edition produced in a similar colorway. The earlier “Freshwater” version of Air Griffey Max 1 had only a sparse involvement of the aqua hue.
Ken Griffey Jr. has been a part of Major League Baseball (MLB) for 22 years. He played as an outfielder and was admitted to the hall of fame in 2016. The same year, he introduced his signature sneakers.
Griffey, who was once picked by the Seattle Mariners in the 1987 MLB draft, now owns a considerable stake in the same team since 2021. Although he got his first break with the Mariners in his career, the player also devoted a few years to the Cincinnati Reds and played for the Chicago White Sox.
In 2009, the player went back to the Seattle Mariners before retiring in the subsequent year.
