In anticipation of the Fourth of July, Nike recently brought back the Air Griffey Max 1 in a USA-themed colorway. The sneaker prominently featured a slew of “Old Royal” and “Gym Red” hits across the white-based leather upper. As an added iteration, the Swoosh is set to release another USA-inspired Air Griffey Max 1 which flips the previous silhouette’s color scheme.

The most noticeable features on the upcoming drop are the all-black overlays found on the nubuck mudguards and rubber outsole, along with a punchy red leather base, complemented by navy blue accents across the velcro strap, tongue pull tab and eyelets.

First debuted in 1996, Ken Griffey Jr.’s signature shoe was first intended for performance use — as were virtually all sneakers at the time — but the Air Griffey Max 1 steadily gained a reputation amongst sneakerheads for its chunky silhouette, velcro enclosure and range of different colorways.

As with the classics, the upcoming Air Griffey Max 1 will don the player’s number 24 on the strap to complete the look. The shoe doesn’t have a release date yet, but it will be available to purchase for $170 USD sometime later this year at Nike.
