Nike Sportswear looks to release the Air Griffey Max 1 in a “Wheat” color scheme to match the upcoming Autumn season scenery. The latest colorway follows the debut of the four-shoe pack inspired by Baseball Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr.’s legacy and on-field feats.

With only a few baseball players who’ve had the opportunity of receiving their very own signature shoe, the Swoosh brand and Griffey Jr.’s Air Max 1 has made quite an impact in recent years with offerings such as the offering which honors Jackie Robinson who broke baseball’s color barrier in the early 40s.

This time instead of an all-leather outfitted design, the shoe opts for a full suede upper in “Wheat” with pops of white hitting the main forefoot Swoosh, laces, ankle strap details and heel branding. A white midsole encases dark Fuschia Air units while a gum rubber outsole rounds up the design of the shoe.

Look out for the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Wheat” to release in the coming weeks at select retailers and on Nike’s website for $140 USD.

Elsewhere in footwear, the Nike Air Total Max Uptempo takes on a throwback “White/Midnight Navy” colorway.
