Celebrating the days when everyone wanted to “Be Like Mike,” Jordan Brand is set to release an Air Jordan 6 inspired by Michael Jordan’s memorable Gatorade commercial. The Air Jordan 6 “Gatorade” is a shout out to the Miami-inspired logo of Gatorade and comes dressed up in a synthetic green suede upper. A hit of orange on the midsole and heel-stripe combined with a white outsole finishes off the color scheme of Gatorade’s logo.
The Air Jordan 6 “Gatorade” is set to hit select Jordan Brand retailers on October 28 for a price of $190 USD.
Continuing to celebrate the iconic Cortez silhouette’s 45th birthday, Nike has just dropped a Sail/Blue Jay colorway. This Classic Cortez Leather SE edition sees the Swoosh, back heel tab and section of the midsole bathed in the “Blue Jay” blue while a clean Sail covers the rest of the upper sitting atop a grooved outsole. Fans of the Air Max 90 Laser Blue will find that this iteration of the Cortez will fit in perfectly with their taste.
You can pick up the Nike Classic Cortez Leather SE “Blue Jay” now at select retailers like Foot District for €90 EUR which is approximately $103 USD. Nike also recently gave the Cortez a Flyknit makeover.
After releasing an assortment of collaborative sneakers earlier this year, Japanese menswear label White Mountaineering have come together with adidas Originals for another set of new NMD R2s.

The sneakers feature the same white stripes along the forefront of the sneaker that we saw in the last collection, as well as White Mountaineering’s branding along the shoe’s tongue and vertically along the pull tab strap.
The latest White Mountaineering x adidas NMD R2s are set to hit stores in Asia for $250 USD sometime this month, with a worldwide release expected in the near future. In other adidas news, be sure to read up on the upcoming adidas Originals short film Hourglass with Daniel Arsham.
Maison Margiela has once again rejuvenated one of the brand’s most beloved sneakers. A couple weeks after Margiela delivered its own spin on the classic Air Force 1, the legendary fashion house shines the spotlight back on the popular Replica shoe for a bold new offering. Giving the Replica reflective and leopard-spotted makeovers, Margiela serves up a boisterous, eye-catching take on an otherwise understated design. Last time Margiela brought the Replica back to the forefront, the company was asking its customer to customize their own product.
You can check out the latest iterations of Maison Margiela’s Replica sneaker above — head on over to END. to pick up your own pair. In other Margiela footwear news, the French luxury goods provider also debuted the Patchwork Sneakers early last month.
