Ken Griffey Jr. may have hung up his cleats and called it quits but his signature Nike sneakers are far from retirement. Slated to release throughout 2011 will be a few additional colorways of The Kid’s signature Air Griffey Max 1 trainer. We previously reported on the pending release of a newly colored Cincinnati Reds version, which we’ve now learned will be joined by the original Emerald version, the third OG colorway of the Air Griffey Max 1 to release since Nike began retroing the Swingman series. An exact release can’t be confirmed just yet, but the sneakers appeared in Nike’s summer catalog so we should be able to expect a release around July-August. Stay posted for further details and more pictures as the release nears.
