It’s been 75 years since Jack “Jackie” Roosevelt Robinson broke the color barrier of professional baseball in the United States of America. To celebrate the occasion, NIKE, Inc. has produced a number of shoe options inspired by the famous Brooklyn Dodger.
Along with an anniversary-dressed Nike Dunk Low and details commemorating Robinson, the North American sportswear giant has prepared a special edition of Ken Griffey Jr.’s signature baseball shoe, the Air Griffey 1. akin to the aforementioned basketball sneaker, the made-for-the-mound style dons a ‘Racer Blue’ and ‘Coconut Milk’ color combination across its upper, with the former tone landing on high-grade leather panel grips. . Additionally, several quotes attributed to the Georgia native are printed on the vibrant blue colored overlays. “42”, Robinson’s number, replaced Griffey Jr.’s “24” on the locking straps found near the collar. Visible Air Max cushioning is dropped below in favor of a combination of foam and enclosed Zoom Air to deliver responsive cushioning on the baseball field. Finally, aggressive spikes complete the pair.
