It’s been 26 years since their partnership began, but the motivation still lives on. The influence that MJ had on kids back then is unmatched by anything these days. There was no stronger endorsement for Gatorade than it being the drink that gave MJ that extra push during games and him having the extra energy to make the jaw-dropping plays that are still imprinted in our brains.
Now, Jordan Brand is honoring this monumental moment in Jordan’s career as they always do with a special collection of footwear and apparel. The clean look of the Gatorade logo combined with the “Be Like Mike” sayings and retro styling makes the apparel a must have if you’re a JB lover. Clean hoodies, socks and hats bring this collection full circle as they have you covered with everything you could need. Jordan Brand brings the Retro 6 to life with a Gatorade colorway. The sneaker is dressed in a white upper with orange overlays and green Gatorade accents throughout. Finishing off the theme is the sports drink’s lightning bolt logo on the lacelocks and insoles. The inside tongue of the retro features “If I Could Be..” from the commercials and the soles of the shoes feature the classic Gatorade bolt.
