The year is almost over, and there are a few more Jordan sneakers that is set to drop before the year is over. The Air Jordan 6 Suede Gatorade is set to drop the day before New Years Eve, and is releasing in limited quantities. 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. This is the Alternative of the Air Jordan 6 Like Mike, which is releasing this Saturday.

The Air Jordan 6 History

The Air Jordan 6 was originally released way back in 1991. Michael Jordan has wore these during his first NBA title and won his first NBA Finals MVP. The Air Jordan 6 was the first Jordan to feature a reinforcement around the toe of the sneaker. Tinker Hatfield has designed two holes on the top of the tongue, and “spoilers” on the back of the shoes. Hatfield has done this because MJ has been having issues with putting on the past five Jordan models (Air Jordan 1-5). Like the Air Jordan 5, the Air Jordan 6 features clear rubber soles, making it the second Jordan to have this feature. The clear rubber soles on the 6 was built to be more solid, since there were complaints that kids that owned the Jordan 5 were falling because the soles would collect dust on the court, which made the sole slippery. The heel tab on the 6 was positioned to prevent it from hitting MJ’s Achilles Tendon. MJ’s number “23” was also incorporated on the sneaker as well. When the 6 first came out in 1991, it was $125.00.

Features Of The Shoe

This shoe will consist of suede material and feature a green colorway, covering the majority of the sneaker. It also features touches of orange located on the midsole, lace locks, and heel tabs. Additionally, you will notice the Gatorade thunder logos in the insoles, and the saying “if I could be” located on the back of each tongue. The shoe will come in a special edition “BE LIKE MIKE” shoebox as well.

Release Date

These special edition sneakers are releasing December 30, for a little steep price of $225.00. If you plan on copping the Air Jordan 6 Like Mike, why not cop these bad boys. If you happen to cop these, consider yourself lucky!!

  1. I’ve never been one to purchase Air Jordans. Maybe I’m a little too old, or a little too cheap, or both. But I actually do think these look nice and they look really comfortable too. My daughter has always been into Jordans, so this is definitely something to consider for Christmas.

    Thanks for posting this review.

    • Hello Andy, thanks for the comment. Jordans back in the day were very affordable, but now, unfortunately, the prices are too high and the prices will continue to increase. These shoes are only going to be available in men sizes (size 8-14), can your daughter fix men size shoes??? If so, this will be something to consider for Christmas.

  2. Great Post. Lots of good pics showing the shoes. That’s important when I make my decision to buy shoes. The information is concise and factual. Thanks for your help!

  3. Hey man, those look sick! Have to love Jordan’s, especially in these gatorade colors! Thanks for the article.

    • Hello Martin, thanks for the comment. Feel free to always check back with the latest sneakers for all of the future updates on soon to release shoes!!!

  4. This is a sick colorway of a great sneaker. Yes the price tag is a little steep, but this shoes is one of those times i’ll pay $225. Usually i’ll only pay that for an 11 that drops during the holiday or something like the Black Cement 3’s dropping in February, but for this particular sneaker i’ll do it if I can get my hands on it. I’m just hoping they drop in some stores in my city.

    • Hello Orlando, thanks for the comment. These are going to be extremely limited, so I suggest you mark your calendar now and be ready to cop a pair. Feel free to always check back with the Latest Sneakers for future updates!!!

  5. Thanks for responding Ahmad. Trying to stay on top it man haha. I’m pretty sure Shoe Palace will get them in my town and I’ve had pretty good luck with that store, not sure Foot Locker or Champs Sports will get them though. So I might have to enter on my apps for stores in the east bay since I live in the north bay.

    • Hello Orlando, thanks for the comment. I hope that you are able to cop a pair of these limited edition sneakers. I will create a product review on them soon with the purchase links and hopefully you can get them.
