Though the shoe will understandably draw comparisons to LeBron's "South Beach" 8, this new colorway of the Air Max JR is apparently being released as part of a multi-shoe MLB Home Run Derby Pack. Black mesh and turquoise leather work the upper on this pair, while pink offers color pop on the laces and pull-tab Swoosh embroidery. Ken Griffey Jr.'s famous Swingman logo adorns the heel, while a black 360-Max Air bag and outsole support the ride below.
Set for an official Tuesday, July 3 launch, you can grab this new Air Max JR at Lexington's Oneness Early.
