Air Griffey Max 1 “42” to Release Soon as a Turf

Available 4/24 at 7:00 AM, according to Nike.com.

While the league donned the number 42 in honor of the most important baseball player in MLB history, Jackie Robinson, Sean Manaea and other Nike athletes strapped into the Air Griffey Max 1 “42.”

A throwback tribute to Jackie—the Air Griffey Max 1 “42” *turf* will be available April 24 at Nike. The Jackie Robinson socks might be sold out by the time you read this, but there might be one left.

From Nike:

“Ken Griffey Jr.’s legendary game cemented his baseball legacy. But the Swingman remains celebrated far beyond the diamond thanks to his iconic signature sneakers and enduring cultural impact. The Air Griffey Max 1 ’42’ honors another legend of the sport in celebration of Jackie Robinson Day. The limited-edition sneaker sports Robinson’s iconic number 42 and other details that nod to the all-time great and his enduring influence.”
