Later this year, a reported Air Jordan 6 colorway is dropping that will borrow the colors of the world’s most famous sports drink, Gatorade. Decked out in green, orange, and white, the retro is hopefully going to show us what it’s like to Be Like Mike, the famous Gatorade commercial were MJ is seen wearing a pair of Carmine 6s. In an era where virtually everything related to MJ is getting a tribute sneaker, whether it be movies to shattered backboards to Chinese New Year, what’s most amazing about the Air Jordan 6 Gatorade is not that we’re finally getting a sneaker that references one of Michael Jordan’s most famous endorsement deals, but that it took so long to come to fruition. Maybe because green, orange, and white on an Air Jordan 6 sounds like a great idea, until you actually have to execute.
It’s certainly taken a turn for the colorful over the past few years, but many of the most talked about and beloved Air Jordan 6 colorways have skewed towards simplicity over the flash. Not that the Air Jordan 6 All-Star colorway is bad by any means, but there’s why that retro continues to drop in price but other more sedated drops like this past weekend’s Air Jordan 6 Alternate garners more attention. With a green, orange, and white palette, we’ve already seen two potential ways the shoe could go. So in this week’s edition of NBA 2K17 Kicks, we’re taking a look at the many ways the potential Air Jordan 6 can go right and the ways it can go oh-so-wrong.
