In August of 1991, one of the most iconic commercials to ever hit airwaves dropped – The Gatorade “Like Mike” spot. If one is old enough, they can even sing those hallowed lyrics “sometime I dream/ that he is me”. The commercial not only legitimized Michael Jordan as a megastar, but at the same time made Gatorade a worldwide brand.
Today, Jordan Brand and Gatorade decided to bring back memories of that the iconic commercial with a remix only Diddy would’ve been able to cobble together resulting in the “Like Mike” fashion line. The branded gear allows those with fond memories of the commercial, or those who love the look of the gear to participate in one an extension of one of the greatest commercials ever.
On top of which, just look at the gear. The “Like Mike” Jordan 6’s are glorious to look at and lets be real, even better to have on the feet.
Also, the insert on the tongue has “If I Could Be’ which is just awesome and will probably have you singing the classic jingle on it.
The XXXII Lows feature the added touch of the old school Gatorade logo on the soles of the kicks as the “i’ in “Mike,’ which is a nice callback to the 90’s commercial.
The “Like Mike” collection of apparel is available now in select stores, but the Air Jordan VI’s and Jordan 32 Low sneakers won’t be available until December 16th. I suggest getting affairs in order because these are gonna be hot, and may the odds be in your favor.
