Michael Jordan’s relationship with Gatorade is almost as important as his relationship with Nike. In 1991 (the year of the Air Jordan 6), MJ became Gatorade’s first endorser and produced the iconic ‘Be Like Mike’ ad, paving the way for more successful sports drinks. Jordan Brand planned on dropping an Air Jordan 6 to honor the relationship this month but the release has been pushed to later this year.
Sporting a similar look to the ‘Carmine’ 6s (the shoe MJ wore in the Gatorade ad), the shoe has a White, Orange, and Green colorway. Additional features highlight the famous ad with the ‘If I Could Be’ slogan on the inner tongues, Gatorade insoles, and lace-locks that mimic the Gatorade bottles.
The Air Jordan 6 Gatorade was originally scheduled to drop on October 28th, but the announcement was just made that the release has been pushed back to December 16th. Also, look out for future Gatorade-inspired Jordans including a Green suede Jordan 6 and four Air Jordan 1s.
We don’t have a release date just yet, but it’s assumed that it will release alongside the Jordan VI and I in December. Stick with JordansUnveil.com for more info as it is announced.
This winter Jordanheads will have the opportunity to buy their pair of holiday Air Jordan 11 a few weeks earlier than normal. Every December malls and sneaker shops prepare for one of the biggest releases of the year surrounding the AJ 11. Unlike the majority of the years prior Jordan Brand’s Flight Pack, only one major Air Jordan 11 released a year. This November that will all change.
Michael Jordan’s alma matter played such a remarkable role in the designing phase of some of earlier sneakers and remain present in his Retros. Right around Black Friday we’ll be seeing the introduction to Jordan Brand’s node to North Carolina with the Win Like 82 Air Jordan 11. The 11′s patent leather wears a navy blue shade and is matched with the sneaker’s insole, tongue logo and outsole. A University Blue Jumpman sits below the ankle rim adding a slight contrast to the darker tones.
The Air Jordan 11 Navy Suede will release at Jordan Retailers in full family sizes. It will release on November 24th at select Jordan retailers. The price is set at $220. Are you looking forward to the ‘UNC’ colorway or the ‘Bulls’ iteration? Be sure to leave your comments below.
The Air Jordan 11 Win Like 96 For Sale release exclusives continue as Union Los Angeles officially unveils an Air Jordan 1 in black and gold patent leather styled after the infamous ‘Top 3′. The Air Jordan 1 in Black and Gold is considered to be the unicorn of AJ1s, which is why 2013′s re-issue commands such an insanely high price on the market. Union Los Angeles confirms that these will release in limited quantity at their booth at Complex Con, so be sure to swing by if you’re attending the weekend-long event. Jordan Brand confirms that these are not an official collaboration with the shop, but Union LA will indeed be the first to drop the shoe.
ComplexCon saw alot of exclusive shoes become available just at that event, however, one of themost intriguing pairs was at the Union Los Angeles Booth. For a limited amount of people, the Air Jordan 1 Gold Top 3 was redone for the coveted ‘Black/Gold’ colorway. Giving us a mismatch of black gold panels across the two shoes, it was rumored to get a global release date, and it appears to be joining the wild All Star Game festivities.
To further elaborate, Nike Lebron will release a white/gold patent leather Lebron 15 White Gold for All-Star weekend, but it will not feature the ‘Top 3′ motif. Each shoe of the pair (left and right) will be identical. The ‘Gold’ Top 3 version is in fact a ComplexCon exclusive.
Carissa Navarro keeps it warm, fuzzy and fun on her 2017 Air Jordan 12 Doernbecher design.
Nike’s 2017 Doernbecher collection features the Air Jordan 12 in a unique makeover as well and it’s the only Air Jordan in the group. This version of the sneaker has been designed by Carissa Navarro and it displays a few of her favorite things.
Her stuffed dog Max is seen on the outsole, followed by a picture of her family inside and a slice of pizza on the laces. ‘I put pizza on my shoe because pizza is delicious!’ she said. Of all the things that Carissa loves most, her twin sister Savannah tops the list, and her name appears on the heel tab of the left shoe. Carissa was born without kidneys, but Savannah helped her stay alive in the womb until she could begin dialysis. ‘She’s the best sister ever,’ said Carissa of her twin.
Earlier we announced that the Air Jordan 11 Win Like 96 For Sale would be included as part of the Doernbecher Freestyle ’17 Collection. However, that will not be the only marquee shoe to release as part of the collection. The Jordan 12 will also release as part of this year’s Freestyle collection.
Courtesy of SoleheatonFeet, we have word of the Jordan 12 to be released in a Black, Hyper Violet and Pink Blast colorway.
This would be the second ime that the Air Jordan 12 has been apart of the Doernbecher series. Back in 2015, the Pair was done in a 12 shoe run as apart of the auction only Dirty Dozens.

The Derek Jeter Air Jordan 11 Navy Suede has quietly dropped a number of various colorways over the past 7 months, some of which have included new colorways like the ‘DMP’ along with OG classics like the ‘Chicago’ and ‘Chutney.’ As we continue to progress through the 2017 year we still have at least one more AJ 13 colorway to look forward to with the OG ‘Bred’ returning and even more in 2018. But with newer models like the ‘History of Flight’ attempting to meet or exceed expectations of previous colorways, it’s been disputable whether or not Jordan Brand can bring new heat in the Air Jordan 13 Retro department.
One possible candidate sneakerheads might flock to is the rumored release of an upcoming Air Jordan 11 Black Stingray For Sale colorway dubbed Black,’ expected to drop sometime next year. Sneaker source Zsneakerheadz recently revealed a rendering of the expected AJ 13 on his IG a day ago, revealing the shoe’s expecting design with a questionable release date. For now, all we have is an early image which displays the shoe may carry an olive suede upper, and black leather toe box. We can only hope the mesh segment will feature a 3M upper like the ‘Bred’ colorway.
