While the Nike Terminator High has made a remarkable comeback this year, it’s essential to note that its return is intimately tied to the re-release of the “Georgetown” OG colorway, the first images of which date back to… 2014!
Originally released in 1985, the history of the Nike Terminator High is inextricably linked to Georgetown University. Indeed, while the Georgetown Hoyas team had just been awarded a championship in 1984, they wanted to have their own model, instead of the Dunk High that Nike introduced the following year for various college teams participating in the NCAA Championship. That’s how the Nike Terminator was born, featuring the Georgetown Hoyas colors, as well as the inscription “HOYAS” on the heel, as opposed to “NIKE” on the mainstream version.
Thirty-seven years later, the Nike Terminator makes its comeback in its OG colorway to the delight of retro fans.
The rising construction of the sneaker features soft leather throughout its upper, favoring a very light gray on the base where the midnight blue of the overlays, especially on the mudguard, the reinforcement of the laces and the heel as well as on the side Swooshes, comes to bring a strong contrast. The Terminator’s iconic signature is the huge NIKE lettering on the heel that earned it the nickname “Big Nike” when the model was released in 1985, and even spawned a model that was officially named the Big Nike.
