SHOP: Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Gatorade Pack — Available NOW on Kixify (Coming Soon)
The Air Jordan 6 Gatorade pair(s) won’t be the only Gatorade-themed Air Jordan retros to drop this year. Jordan Brand will also be releasing an Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Gatorade Pack consisting of four colorways inspired by four classic Gatorade flavors.
Jordan Brand chose the Air Jordan 1 model for the Gatorade theme because that’s the very silhouette that was featured in the “23 vs. 29” ad that has a 23 year old Michael Jordan go one on one against a 39 year old Michael Jordan. (Check out the video below)
IMages of the shoes have began to leak. We’ve already seen the Jordan 1 in the Orange Peel and Blue Lagoon colorways. Both have tonal premium leather uppers with tonal laces, the Gatorade lightning logo on the heels, Orange Nike Air branding on the tongue, Gatorade hang tags, “Be Like Mike” branding on the inside of the tongue and co-branded insoles to complete the style altogether.
The shoes will also come with a special Orange box that reads “MIKE” on the lid, as the Gatorad thunder bolt replaces the I in MIKE. Two more colorways have yet to be unveiled, and those colorways are Rush Violet and Cyber. Stay tuned as more info begins to surface.
