This Nike Air Griffey Max 1 Flips The Script

Updated: Apr 29, 2022

Nike went all in last year on Ken Griffey Jr.'s debut signature as the model celebrated its 25th anniversary. Dropping all three OG Seattle Mariners based colorways and even adding an homage to the great, Jackie Robinson – the Air Griffey Max 1 had a banner year. And it is poised for a repeat in 2022.

This colorway flips the script and inverts the beloved 'Emerald' but carries inspiration from the 'Freshwater' color blocking. But the retro is not entirely true to the color palette. Instead, a lighter Aqua based look adorns the signature retro to create a brand new colorway, but maintains an original nod with the red outlined Swoosh on the tongue tab and heel.

Scroll through the official images below as the Air Griffey Max will be dropping presumably in the near future in its new look. Is this a pickup for you?

Update: The 'Aquamarine' Nike Air Griffey Max 1 will release on May 12th online at Nike and at select Nike Sportswear retailers.
