Detailed Looks at the Nike SB Dunk Mid “Griffey”
Nike SB’s skate-shop exclusive Orange Label initiative continues to punch out bangers for their local clientele, with the next offering interestingly inspired by Ken Griffey Jr.’s most significant signature shoe – the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 — in it’s iconic “Freshwater” colorway.
The OG turf trainer debuted back in ’96, arriving in colors that matched his then-Mariners unis. This release carries an unmistakable influence, mimicking the slugger’s OG by-way-of teal uppers, black overlays, and bold white Swooshes. Midfoot straps are the dead giveaway, with The Kid’s #24 replaced by numero 58, referring Nike SB’s curated design program created in partnership with skate-shop employees from stores of distinction.
Pairs are pegged for release in select skate stores this April — but with the current global crisis surrounding COVID-19, things may likely change. As with any Orange Label release, it’s always best to check in with your local for details.
Update 03.25.20 // IIt appears that some non-skate shop retailers will be getting the “Griffey” Nike SB Dunk Mid, with international retailers Caliroots listing the pair for an April 1st release. They have also provided a gallery of detailed looks below!
