To coincide with Jordan Brand’s “Be Like Mike” offering (which includes the Air Jordan 6 and Air Jordan 32 Low models), the Air Jordan 1 silhouette is welcomed to the Gatorade theme thanks to its forthcoming “Lemon Lime” iteration. The latest addition follows its “Orange Peel” version as an ode to some of Gatorade’s most popular flavors over the years.
The Air Jordan 1 Gatorade Cyber will be one of four other Air Jordan 1 colorways inspired by the classic Gatorade flavors. Created in the 60s and brought to mass market in the 70s, Lemon-Lime was one of two original Gatorade flavors. The collaboration is officially marked by logo hits on the heel, insoles and outsoles. On the backside of the tongues is “Be Like Mike,” the memorable tagline from Michael Jordan’s famous Gatorade commercial.
The sneaker boasts a monochromatic look as it’s covered in the aforementioned “Lemon Lime” coloring with subtle nods which pay homage to Michael Jordan and Gatorade. Gatorade’s signature lightning bolt is placed on the lateral side of each heel in orange, which matches the sneaker’s tumbled leather tongue tab. Other details includes Gatorade branded outsoles and “Be Like Mike” on the inner tongues. It’ll also come with an Orange hangtag, Gatorade x Jordan Brand towel, three set of laces housed in a special edition “Like Mike” box.
