Nike is introducing a collection of Terminators that pays tribute HBCUs and their alumni.
One of these special edition Terminators see the athletic giant join forces with Slim and Husky’s a Nashville- based pizza chain founded by Tennessee State alums Clint Gray, Derrick Moore, and EJ Reed. It sports a sail leather upper a with a fur and and tiger stripe overlay at the toe and wrapping the heel.
Bold blue Swooshes adorn the lateral and medial sides with red leather straps pull tabs. Other callbacks to their alma mater include “1912” , the year of Tennessee State’s founding, on the lateral forefoot “T” on the rear heel. “SLIM” and “HUSKY” appear on each respective blue tongue label, with “GET GEEK’D” which is what we do during Homecoming Week. The laces are adorned with “THE BOYS”, an homage to the football team and, “TIGERBELLES”, a nod to the legendary women’s track team, along with Slim & Husky’s branded insoles.
Underneath resides a white midsole and a red rubber outsole.
The “Slim & Husky’s” Nike Terminator High is anticipated to debut sometime over the course of the coming months at Nike.com and select retail establishments; they will carry a very palatable 125 USD sticker price.
