Earlier this month, Jordan Brand officially announced their renewed partnership with Gatorade – a formative union of the past that helped bolster Michael Jordan’s star back in the ’90s due to their iconic ads. Driven by co-branded apparel and of course two iterations of the Air Jordan 6, the Air Jordan 1 will also play a role in this popular collaboration and will soon give birth to this “Orange Peel” colorway.
The shoe’s upper is filled with the aforementioned orange shade that is also seen on the Gatorade-branded hang tag. Moreover, the company’s branding marks the shoe’s heel and outsole while traditional Air Jordan 1 branding remains customary at the tongue, heel collar and paneling.
It’s reported that this Air Jordan 1 “Gatorade” will drop sometime in December. Stay tuned for more right here at Nice Kicks and be sure to also check out the blue “Gatorade” 1s.
