Jordan Brand Reveals ‘Like Mike’ Collection Release Details
Although weâ€™re allÂ well-versed with the Air Jordan 1 â€œGatoradeâ€ CollectionÂ and its adjoiningÂ Air Jordan 6 â€œGatoradeâ€Â that drops next week, Jordan Brand recently unveiled official imagery for the collection and further detailed its inspiration from the August 1991 â€œLike Mikeâ€ campaign.
Starring theÂ Air Jordan 6, the very shoe MJ wore during the 1991 campaign, its green suede upper alongside orange accents take inspiration from the nostalgic Gatorade squeeze bottle. TheÂ Air Jordan 1Â collection takes directly from the sporting drinkâ€™s popular flavors, interpreting Lemon Lime, Grape, Cool Blue and Orange through the 1985 icon.
Look for the Air Jordan 1 collection on December 26 and the Air Jordan 6 â€œGatoradeâ€ on December 30.
