Air Jordan continues to drop Gatorade-themed sneakers throughout the month of December. The Air Jordan 1 Gatorade Grape is dropping the day after Christmas, along with the Air Jordan 1 Gatorade Cool Blue, the Air Jordan 1 Gatorade Orange and the Air Jordan 1 Gatorade Lime. Did you cop the Air Jordan 6 Like Mike?? If so, why not cop these too. If you can recall, back in 1991, there were “Be Like Mike” commercials, featuring former basketball player Michael Jordan. These sneakers are an inspiration of the classic Gatorade commercials.
The Air Jordan 1 History
The Air Jordan 1 was first introduced way back in 1984-1985, created by Peter Moore. Michael Jordan has become the Rookie Of The Year, and played in the All-Star game. It was the first basketball shoe wore in the NBA that featured multiple colors. MJ first disliked the sneaker, but started to grew on him overtime. During that time, the famous sneaker was banned by Commissioner of the NBA, David Stern. MJ wasn’t allowed to wear the shoes on the court, but MJ refused to play without them anyways. He was fined $2,000 for every time he worn the sneakers on the court. However, Nike has covered the fines, and also gave the Air Jordan 1 the “The Shoe Banned By The NBA” label. There were over 23 different color variations released, and the Air Jordan 1 also came with two sets of shoe laces that matched the colorway on the sneakers. The shoe was originally retailed at $65.00.
Features Of The Shoe
Inspired by the grape Gatorade flavor, this shoe consist of an leather dressed in an overall of grape. You can also notice the Gatorade sign located by the heel, embossed branding on the tongue tags, Gatorade branding located in the insole, and on the transparent outsole. These sneakers will come in a special edition “Like Mike” box, along with a special orange hangtag, three sets of shoe laces, and a Gatorade x Jordan brand towel as well.
These are set to release on December 26th, for $175.00. These will be nice for a after Christmas gift for you, or someone else in mind. Don’t miss out, these will sell out instantly.
