The Air Jordan 6 Gatorade Green Suede predominately employs the colour scheme of the beverage it takes after with the majority of the sneakers’ exterior coming in a dark shade of green.

Air Jordan has incorporated a few design antics to spruce up the sneakers appearance with perforations strategically decorating the upper body in the midst of overflowing contours. Meant as a muted artistic shout-out, the green can-like lace locks complimented by miniature carmine Jumpmans accentuate the look beautifully.
It’s not all green at the bottom of the sole either as the base’s enthralling green shares residence with jugged white patterns of a snow white color scheme complete with an orange Jumpman defiantly posing in the midst of the two divides. Another Jumpan also seamlessly dons the heels of the shoes right above the Air Jordan logo imprint.
The minute but classy design finishings around the top of the tongue and the circumference of the shoes top also serve to add a dash of elegance and afford a stylish invitation to the insole which, just like much of the upper body, is also engulfed in a sea of green except for a white Air Jordan logo right at the middle.
