On May 25, 1991, Ken Griffey Jr. robbed New York’s Ruben Sierra of extra bases with the “Spider-Man” catch. To pay homage to arguably one of the greatest catches in MLB history, Nike will be releasing a special VaporMax Plus inspired by that moment as part of a larger “Swingman” collection.
This offering of the Nike Air VaporMax Plus comes dressed in a “Freshwater”-like color blocking. The shoe is detailed with Teal accents and Red stitching along the collar along with Griffey’s number “24” on the heel pull tabs. A spider graphic on the insoles with a Gold hang tag completes the design.
Check out the additional photos below, and look for the Nike Air VaporMax Plus “Swingman” to release on June 25th at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $210 USD.
