The Diamond Mine: 10 MLB All-Star Footwear Moments to Remember

Ken Griffey Jr. of the Seattle Mariners wearing the Air Griffey Max III

Player: Ken Griffey Jr.
Shoe: Nike Air Griffey Max III
Year: 1998

Junior burst onto the scene in the late ‘80s and brought, along with his smooth swing and golden glove, a much-needed sense of style to the diamond. By 1996, he received a signature line from the Swoosh and they started it off with a bang. The Nike Air Griffey Max I is one of the most memorable training shoes and cleats of all time. This moment, where the Kid turned his cap backwards and crushed everyone in the 1998 Home Run Derby, might just top that. Wearing the Nike Air Griffey Max III, Junior struck the iconic pose that later turned into his own Swingman logo.
