10. Nike Air Griffey Max I
When Nike and Ken Griffey Jr. came together in 1996, the onus was on Nike to put out a shoe that would properly represent the slugger. Remember, Griffey combined speed and strength in a way that baseball hadn’t seen for a long time.
Into the box steps the Air Griffey Max I, the perfect embodiment of Griffey and his playing style. They were a bit chunky, but you knew you were going to get the comfort and support you needed from these shoes. Hey, if Ken Griffey Jr. was going to stand around in them all day while at the ballpark, then they’d be good enough for you too.
