In 1996, Nike and Ken Griffey, Jr. launched the “Griffey for President” advertising campaign. 20 years later, they celebrate the campaign with this Nike Air Griffey Max 1 Griffey for President release.
During that era, Griffey was the face of baseball and had everything going for him. He even pursued politics, which Nike backed him throughout.
So in honor of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 20th anniversary celebration, Nike brings back that campaign with his signature sneaker that’s dressed in a patriotic and presidential mix.
The shoe comes in a Midnight Navy, Team Red, and Gum Light Brown color scheme. Featuring a nubuck-based upper with a modernized “Griffey for President” campaign button on the heels and completed with Gum soles. The release will also include the classic bumper stickers too.
Check out the detailed images below and look for the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Griffey for President” to debut on June 28th, 2016 at select Nike Sportswear retail stores. The retail price tag is set at $160 USD.
