Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Swingman” Drops June 25th
The 25th-anniversary celebration of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 is expanding beyond the famed trainer with a multi-faced collection of footwear options inspired by The Kid’s career. From the ridiculous Spider-Man Catch to being part of the League’s first father/son duo. Now Nike looks to that beautiful swing with this Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Swingman”
Dressed in the famed Mariners hues of white, black, and teal, along with hits of red — a possible nod to his time at Cincinnati — and gold that tips the cap to his 10 career Golden Gloves. Here, white perforated leather uppers work with jet black mudguard overlays and matching straps, while Freshwater green rakes the length of the midsole. Pops of red a found fluttered throughout, most noticeable at the rear pull, vamp eyestay, and tongue “Swingman” branding. Majestic metallic gold forefoot Swooshes and Air supports arrive as a tribute to an illustrious career, while the finish is applied to rear motif to highlight The Kid’s beautiful swing. If you needed more, Nike has decorated the insoles with words reading “The Sweetest Swing”, and metallic gold hangtags with the Kid’s silhouette come to complete the design.
