Nike Air Max JR Neutral Grey/Volt
Though Ken Griffey Jr.‘s baseball career may be over, his signature sneaker line continues to breath life thanks to the fine folks at Nike. The Nike Air Max JR is unmistakably a direct descendent of the Griffey line, and here’s why. First there’s his iconic number 24 emblazoned at the ankles, and then there’s the signature silhouette logo affixed to the heel tab. The man with one of the most fluid swings in baseball will be remembered long beyond his playing days. The shoe is certainly a cross-trainer and sports a high-top design seated comfortably above a full-length Max Air unit. The colorway is reminiscent of the original Air Max 95 as the combination of grey and neon has been a winning match for Nike over the years. Like MJ before him, Junior is sure to have a storied signature sneaker line that extends long beyond his playing days. Check for these at your local sneaker spot, priced at $160.
