Since its resurgence in late 2022, the Nike Terminator has been commanding attention in the sneaker community. With collaborations from high-profile brands like CDG, the reintroduction of original colorways such as "Georgetown," and contemporary takes like the “Liberté” release, the Terminator has been making consistent waves. As we journey through 2023, Nike shows no signs of slowing down, hinting at more exciting releases, including the return of the legendary "Seattle Supersonics" edition.
Originally introduced in 2004 as part of the "Nike Rewind" collection, the Nike Terminator High "Seattle" takes its design cues from the Supersonics uniforms circa 1971. The initial release was complemented by a range of team apparel and accessories launched in tandem with the sneakers. Faithful to the original design, the 2023 Nike Terminator High "Seattle Supersonics" iteration features a black forest, white, and del sol colorway. The all-leather upper is artfully paired with yellow overlays and green underlays, capturing the classic team colors. To provide a contrast to the dual-tone color scheme, Nike has incorporated white elements via the laces, Swoosh, back heel collar, lining, and midsole. Custom-printed tongue tags from the 2004 release will be revived, too.
