Ken Griffey Jr may be giving it up after 22 long seasons with 3 different teams, but his Swingman Series with Nike will forever live on. We all knew Griffey’s retirement was coming soon, having started in the MLB at the age 19 and now being 40, but maybe Nike was put on to a thing or two before the public.
To our surprise a brand new Nike Air Griffey Max 1 colorway has surfaced at retailers and it couldn’t come at a better time given the fact Griffey’s retirement was announced earlier this month. Labeled as a Quickstrike and arriving at select Nike accounts, such as Sneaker Politics, this edition of the Air Griffey Max 1 features a Metallic Platinum base boxed in by a black midfoot and a black sole unit. Additional accents of Metallic Platinum appear around the openings displaying the Air sole while the Swoosh’s along the toe and heel jump back to black.
