The sneakers slated for release are the Air Jordan 6 Retro “Like Mike” and the Air Jordan 32 Low “Like Mike”. They retail for S$269 and S$239 respectively and will be available on Nike.com on December 16.
The sneakers will come in the signature Gatorade orange and green colors along with the sports drink’s famous lightning bolt. Adding to the tribute, the lace lock also features a striking resemblance to Gatorade water bottles.
The collection also includes apparel such as a hoodie, t-shirt, and cap available now on Nike.
Celebrating the impact of “Be Like Mike”
Michael Jordan and Gatorade’s collaboration in the past brought about the classic “Like Mike” ad campaign which captivated audiences in 1991. The collection intends to commemorate the impact of the advertisement in present times. Nike stated, “What was originally meant as a challenge to be like the greatest of all time now means being your greatest at all times.”
