Ken Griffey Jr was one of the most respected athletes in the 90’s having been added to the Nike roster, as well as being a top pick for the Seattle Mariners. Griffey was also remembered for his signature sneaker that shaped the 90’s footwear scene with the Nike Air Max Griffey 1.
Upon it’s intro, the Nike Air Max Griffey 1 helped launch a handful of Nike campaigns including the “Griffey for President”, that showed a young Ken Griffey Jr ready for his run. In 2016, Nike pays homage to Griffey once again by releasing a colorway inspired by the campaign. The Nike Air Max Griffey 1 “Vote for Griffey” features a navy blue upper alongside red, white and gum. The colorway also comes equipped with stars on the heel strap, insole and a patriotic heel emblem showing Griffey’s classic swingman. Catch the Nike Air Max 1 Griffey at Nike retailers across the globe this summer.
