Ken Griffey, Jr. wasn't an All-Star for most years after the 1990s and spent much of that time, his 30s, rehabbing and attempting to stay healthy enough to play baseball in the MLB. Though his last 10 years playing were nothing like his first decade of mastery, Nike made enough masterful sneakers for him to keep his legacy alive and well.

As you can see above, the Nike Air Max 360 Diamond Griff is all about giving new life to a shoe inspired by the past. A performance model that has retro stylings from prior version of Griffey's Air Max Griffey series, the Air Max Diamond Griff is given all the important traits of a classic Junior shoe: Air Max from heel to toe, a mid-cut, full-grain leather, and high-rising Phylon midsole walls for support and protection. What makes the Air Max 360 Diamond Griff distinguished is its use of Dynamic Flywire, particularly, but also showing love to a certain beloved university.

This version of the Air Max 360 Diamond Griff pays homage to the University of Oregon, with its white base and trim hues of apple green and metallic silver (an occasional football uniform for the Ducks).

Expect these to come near you in early November, just in time for training amidst the football season or weight room work for winter sports.
