The Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Jackie Robinson” is an upcoming rendition of Ken Griffey Jr.’s signature silhouette as it’s suggested to honor Jackie Robinson Day (April 15), a traditional event which occurs annually on April 15 in Major League Baseball, commemorating the day Jackie Robinson made his major league debut and breaking baseball’s color barrier.

Overall, the model dons a timeless black and white combination while Robinson’s famous quote, “There’s not an American in this country free until every one of us is free,” is embossed on the ankle strap. Other design elements consist of Griffey Jr.’s distinct #24 replaced with Robinson’s #42 on both the ankle and insoles to round out its theme.

Retailing for $170, look for the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 “Jackie Robinson” at select Nike stockists and online in April. Always keep it locked to KicksOnFire for the latest in sneaker news, release dates and where to purchase your favorite kicks.
