Original Story (03/18/20): While Nike SB’s GR releases for April include the Dunk Low in “Blue Fury” and “Muslin,” the Orange Label release for the month includes a Dunk Mid dressed in the “Freshwater” colorway of the ’90s classic Air Griffey Max 1.
Originally released in 1996 and most recently re-released in 2016, this Seattle Mariners-inspired colorway is one of the OG colorways of the first signature sneaker of former MLB outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. Like the Air Griffey, this Dunk Mid features a strap, which features the number “58” instead of Griffey’s number “24.” The “58” is a number frequently used by Nike SB as 5 and 8 resemble the letters S and B.
Look for the Nike SB Dunk Mid “Griffey” to release sometime in April (if not delayed). Pairs should start arriving on StockX soon though. Stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for more news and updates on this release.
