One of Nike’s classic silhouettes is returning in new form. The Air Griffey Max 1 has seen a subtle resurgence as of late due to Ken Griffey, Jr.’s induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Still maintaining its true aesthetic via a thick midsole, turf-ready traction, and an ankle strap, it will now don a wheat-based color scheme along its upper. Officially known as “Flax,” buttery suede makes up the upper’s material as it rests atop a complementing gum outsole.
