As you may be aware now, Eastbay.com is set to unleash the greatest Air Jordan restock of all time this weekend, bringing back to shelves — if only briefly — 30 coveted Jordans from the last couple of years. Well . . . this has nothing to do with that except that it’s the day before, so consider it an opening act of sorts. The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 Purple Venom/Black releases Friday, April 18.
A striking new take on the iconic Ken Griffey Jr signature shoe, and one that steps outside the usual Ken’s-former-team inspiration, the colorway sets a purple leather base against black midfoot and mudguard, the latter ubiquitously covered in tonal Safari pebbling. Light blue adds a bit of contrast on the branding and laces, and a translucent blue outsole completes the look.
Per the usual, the latest Griffey will run you $150, and will hit online accounts Friday at 8am EDT.
