Nike Terminator Editorial: The 1v1.


No sport has had a bigger influence on the sneaker and streetwear industry as basketball. The Air Jordan 1 showed the world was a pro-level basketball shoe would look like when co-signed by a professional level athlete, while the Nike Dunk was targeted more towards the collegiate-level basketball teams. And in between the two? Stood the Nike Terminator High. ⁠

First released as a special edition shoe back in 1985, the release of the Terminators was a first in the world of sports and sneakers. Designed exclusively for the Georgetown Hoyas, a team fresh off of winning a national championship the season prior, the shoe represented the first time the Nike branding was omitted in favour of the name of a Collegiate Basketball team. While the rest of the college teams received Nike Dunks in their respective collegiate colourways, the Hoyas would be the only team stepping out onto the court with their very own team-branded Nike Basketball sneaker. ⁠
Fast forward to today, and Nike's set to revive the Terminators in all of their retro basketball glory.
