The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 Olympic release will celebrate the 2016 Summer Olympics being held in Rio de Janeiro Brazil.
It’s been two decades since Ken Griffey Jr. received his first-ever signature shoe. The silhouette was crafted for the Kid in cleated form, and extended beyond the diamond as the Nike Air Griffey Max 1.
Now dressed to represent USA, this Olympic edition of the non-cleated silhouette features a full Navy-based upper with Gold detailing outlining the Nike Swoosh logo on the toe and hints of Red throughout. Other notable details include stars on the back pull tab, with a special edition “Griffey 16” logo on the back heel. The shoe is completed with the traditional “24” on the ankle strap, a White midsole and Gum rubber bottoms.
Check out the detailed images below and look for the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Olympic” to make its debut later this summer. Stay tuned to Sneaker Bar for further release updates as they develop.
