Drawing inspiration from Michael Jordan’s iconic Gatorade ads, the Air Jordan 6 “Gatorade” sports a green suede upper and features the sports drink logo’s color scheme on the midsole and outsole. And while we’ve seen numerous photos of this Gatorade bottle-inspired Air Jordan 6 since the summer, only now do we finally have a release date.
According to zSneakerHeadz, the Air Jordan 6 “Gatorade” will be releasing only in men’s sizes on December 30th and will retail for $225. With the end of December being a whole month away, plan accordingly and peep more photos of the Air Jordan 6 “Gatorade” below.
Among Michael Jordan’s many and more famous endorsement deals was his partnership with Gatorade, his drink of choice when on the sideline or at the practice facility working on his finely tuned game. The ads were legendary, helping coin the iconic “Be Like Me” slogan that would amass worldly fame.
The Air Jordan 6 “Gatorade” odes that relationship by taking the colors from the nostalgic green and orange bottle seen throughout many of those ads. A direct color descendant of the bottle, this Air Jordan 6 highlights a predominately green upper with orange accents peppered throughout.
