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.
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!!
