If you grew up watching baseball before launch angle and strikeouts, you’re probably stoked that Nike just announced the return of the Air Griffey Max 1s.
Yes, they’re made by sweatshop Nike, but no brand can ruin the “Fresh Water” Griffeys we grew up on. If anything, these shoes throw us back to a time when the company wasn’t run by social justice panderers.
Our favorite pair of kicks finally returned, the Air Griffey Max 1. 😍— MLB (@MLB) February 15, 2021
Did you cop the Freshwater?
White, teal and black is a colorway you don’t see much of anymore. They give off a 90s feel, and as we know in any other genre of fashion, styles always come back. Okay, maybe not Ed Hardy, but most other trends catch on at some point in the following generation.
We can’t stand Nike, yet we may have to grab ourselves a pair of the old Griffeys. The only trouble I see is what on earth to wear with these shoes? Outside of tracksuits, there’s not much else in the current generation that makes sense. Maybe tracksuits make a comeback, too?
They release sometime this week, so keep your eyes peeled.
