Although Ken Griffey Jr. spent most of his career in the Pacific Northwest, his signature Nike sneakers were a huge success throughout the country. From New York to Miami to Los Angeles, it seemed like everyone was wearing Ken Griffey’s shoes. So the Swoosh brand pays homage to the never-ending sunsets of the coastal paradise with the upcoming release of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Los Angeles” silhouette.
The shoe is immediately recognizable due to the black nubuck overlays and the white midsole included in its design. However, the Swoosh opted for a vibrant transition from orange to purple for the upper for this release. This is a clear allusion to the world-famous sunsets that Los Angeles is known for. The aglets that resemble the Los Angeles Lakers are the city’s official nod, but there are also many other local sports teams represented, such as the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
