Official Pics: 2021's Nike Air Griffey Max 1 'Varsity Royal'
Coming in hot after news of the ‘Freshwater’ colourway, the ‘Varsity Royal’ retro of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 is set to join the silhouette’s 25th anniversary celebrations. Since debuting in 1996, the colourway was last seen in 2016 to celebrate Ken Griffey Jr.’s induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Official pics show off the eye-catching scheme, which consists of ‘Varsity Royal’, white, ‘Volt’, and black. As far as construction goes, you can expect a leather and nubuck upper covered in an eye-pleasing blue tone, highlighted with the trademark ankle strap which carries both Nike and ‘24’ print. A large black Swoosh logo towards the toe adds some contrast, while visible Max Air units in ‘Volt’ in the sole are sure to turn heads. A black rubber outsole hits down below to round things out.
No official release date has been revealed, but the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 ‘Varsity Royal’ is expected in the coming weeks at select retailers and via Nike. The retail price tag is set at $170.
