The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 GS “Freshwater” is the youth sizing of an original colorway of baseball player Ken Griffey Jr.’s former signature shoe with Nike. The “Freshwater” was originally released in 1996 and is lauded as one of the most popular Air Max models of the ‘90s. Memorably, “Junior” wore the shoe during a season in which he recorded nearly 50 homeruns in 140 regular season games played. This modern version of the shoe was released in February 2021 and celebrates the performance trainer’s 25-year anniversary. Design details include a wavy black synthetic nubuck mudguard between the white leather base and white midsole. Additional black nubuck detailing can be found along the eyelets. A black leather Swoosh appears on the forefoot. A bootie-like construction provides a lockdown fit. An adjustable ankle strap around the collar with Griffey’s former “24” jersey number with the Mariners adds another layer of support. Visible Air units in the forefoot and heel of the midsole add to the retro styling of the shoe. In true-to-original fashion, a blazing baseball graphic is printed on the heel of the outsole to round out the look. Release date: February 15, 2021.
