Ken Griffey Jr.’s Nike Air Griffey Max 1 made a stunning comeback in 2021 for its 25th Anniversary, returning in two original “Freshwater” colorways as well as some special editions honouring the late great Jackie Robinson. With the return of the Nike Griffeys, the Swoosh is ready to round out the lineup once more in 2022, with this upcoming “Wheat” set to release in adult sizes.
Late last year, we showed you the GS sizing, noting that this Wheat colorway did indeed drop in 2016. However, the 2022 edition does feature slight changes, including white lettering and lockdown harnesses on the ankle straps, white embroidery on the Swoosh border, and a lighter shade of “wheat” on the logos and lace eyelets. While this colorway matches the fresh dirt seen in the batter’s box in April, the given “Wheat” colorway indicates a Fall 2022 release.
Take a look at the official images ahead, and stay tuned for release information; these are expected to retail for $170 on Nike.com and select partner retailers.
