I hope you sneakerheads are prepared for the release of the Air Jordan 6 Like Mike. We have been waiting since the summertime for these highly anticipated kicks to drop, and it is almost about that time. I suggest you mark your calendars now, these will instantly sell out!!! 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 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 Shoes
This sneaker has a huge resemblance of the Air Jordan 6 Carmine that released back in May of 2014. It consists of a team orange nubuck base with white leather overlays, It also features Gatorade lack locks, along with green jumpman logos located on the shroud center. 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.
This highly anticipated sneaker is set to release December 16th, 2017, for a retail price of $190.00. Are these on your Christmas list??? If so, don’t bs and secure a pair!!!
