If you grew up in the 90s like me, then to "Be Like Mike" was a court side mantra. From the street courts to the television, Michael Jordan was an iconic athlete for boys AND girls alike. Circa 1991, MJ teamed up with Gatorade for a commercial that emphasized the slogan and reinforced one's destiny for greatness while getting plenty electrolytes in the process.
Fast forward 26 years later and the Jordan Brand x Gatorade is back with a nostalgic apparel capsule. The collection includes long and short sleeve tshirts, hoodies, windbreakers, caps, and other accessories to get you ready to "Be Like Mike". The well-known Gatorade bright orange hues and signature lightning bolt bring the co-branded apparel line together. Check out some of the looks below.
For the cozy kid in all of us, this is a perfect buy and we have no shame in lurking the men's department for it. You can shop the pieces below ranging from $18 to $120 USD.
But wait! It doesn't stop there. We couldn't have any Jordan apparel without shoes, right? Jordan is also releasing an Air Jordan retro 6 in the Gatorade colorways featuring orange and green. The colorblocking on the AJ6 is inspired by the fan favorite "Carmine" sneaker that MJ wore in the commercial. My favorite details are the Gatorade squeeze bottle lace lock and the embroidered "If I could be" on the inside tongue.
The Air Jordan 6 "Like Mike" hit the shelves for $190 USD on the SNKRS app on December 16th. If you're feeling these like I am, have your notifications set and come back to purchase via our SHOP THE SNEAKS button below.
