The man with the sweetest swing in baseball called it quits earlier this year, hanging up his bat after a 22 long season’s in the MLB. While Ken Griffey Jr’s presence in the league will be missed, his presence in the sneaker world is stronger than it’s ever been. In light of his retirement Nike’s been releasing The Kid’s old signature sneakers like never before and the consumers are loving it, snatching them up as soon as they hit the shelves. The latest sneaker to surface from Griffey’s Swingman Series with Nike is the Air Griffey Max GD II which is shown here in a newly designed Black/Varsity Royal colorway. When we originally previewed the shoes back in March some of you were buzzin over them, stating you couldn’t wait for a release. If you’re still interested in scooping a pair up, you can pre-order them now through Eastbay with an expected shipment set for September 24th, 2010.
