Not only is Comme des Garçons introducing new colorways of the Nike Terminator next year, but the shoe is also returning soon in one of its most iconic colorways ever.
Official Nike product images have surfaced this week of the forthcoming “Georgetown” Nike Terminator retro. The “Georgetown” Nike Terminator last returned in 2014 but featured a soft suede upper replacing the traditional leather build. As these images suggest, the forthcoming reissue will feature its OG leather construction.
This shoe is synonymous with Georgetown University when the John Thompson-led Hoyas basketball team wore them in 1985 at NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. The team reached the finals but ultimately lost to Villanova. Nike also made the Hoyas a special version of the shoe, which featured “Hoyas” branding on the heel instead of “Nike” that appeared on the general release pairs.
A release date for the “Georgetown” Terminator retro has not yet been announced by Nike but grab a closer look below as we await official details from the brand.
