Original Story: Every year Nike revisits its catalog to determine which of its old-school silhouettes to bring back. In 2022, one model that has been a key point of focus is the Air Kukini. However, it would seem that the Terminator High is the next model of interest as it recently resurfaced at COMME des GARÇONS Homme Plus’ Spring/Summer 2023 showroom and in “Georgetown,” one of its original colorways that utilizes the university’s color palette. Now, a new but familiar look outfits the Terminator High.
“Cocoa Snake” is a colorway that last hit the Air Force 1 Low in 2018 and now is brought back alongside 1985’s Terminator High. A white leather sits on the upper while snakeskin overlays serve as the focal point of this pair. Black accents the shoe at the rubber outsole, leather Swooshes, laces, tongue and heel branding which reads “NIKE” on both shoes. Lastly, a sail midsole completes this vintage look.
A release date for the Nike Terminator High “Cocoa Snake” and other Terminator High colorways has not been announced yet. However, look for Nike and select retailers to carry pairs soon at an expected price of $120 USD.
In case you missed it, Tom Sachs has announced that the NikeCraft “General Purpose Shoe” is returning to shelves.
