Nike Air Griffey Max 1

Nike Air Griffey Max 1 releases 1996 as Ken Griffey Jr.'s second signature cross-trainer.  Air Griffey Max 1 is first to feature Junior's surname, following previous year's Air Diamond Fury.  

Air Griffey Max 1 retros first release 2009.  Strong sales lead to new colorways, more retro models and  2011 Air Max JR hybrid.

Like many Griffey Nikes, Max 1 also originally issues as baseball cleats.  Cleat is named Nike Air Griffey Metal.  It hasn't been retroed, but this model appears to be one of his favorites with both Seattle Mariners and later Cincinnati Reds.
