Despite playing for the majority of his career in the Pacific Northwest, fans from all over the country flocked to buy The Kid’s trademark Nike sneakers. Ken Griffey’s kicks were everywhere from New York to Miami to Los Angeles. With this Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Los Angeles” the Swoosh pays tribute to the endless sunsets of the coastal mecca.
It’s hard not to recognize these shoes because of their classic white midsoles and black nubuck overlays. The show-stopping feature here is the gaudy orange-to-purple neoprene gradient upper, which pays homage to the city’s world-famous sunsets. In addition to the Lakers-like aglets, which serve as the city’s official nod, there are also references to the LA Rams and Dodgers.
The official images of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Los Angeles” are below, and we expect more release information in the near future.
