Who else is hyped for the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 Prez? This iconic shoe is celebrating its 20th anniversary after it made its debut appearance back in 1996. During this time, the shoe payed homage to the legendary sporting achievements of Ken Griffey Jr. This baseball player was commemorated at the time with Nike adverts showing the phrase ‘Griffey for President’.
While previous renditions have opted for a teal colourway – the colours for Griffey’s team , The Seattle Mariners – this pair takes us back to those humours adverts. Aptly named ‘Vote for Griffey’ a cool combination of navy blue and red hits the upper.
As always, the high top silhouette is crafted with soft and premium suede. It gives durability and that luxurious aesthetic while a gum coloured outsole provides all the protection underfoot. Another interesting design element is the star spangled print on the heel tab and Griffey’s jersey number features on the ankle strap. To finish, gold detailing makes an appearance on the stitching and toe Swoosh.
The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 Prez is scheduled to release on Friday 24th June via the retailers on the right hand side. Each pair will include additional laces and election stickers with the words ‘Griffey in 16’.
