Nike, with a longstanding tradition of celebrating Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), is rolling out a special pack of Terminators as a tribute to these esteemed institutions and their distinguished alumni, from Spelman College to Alabama A&M. This initiative shines brighter with a heartwarming collaboration with Nashville’s beloved pizza chain, Slim & Husky’s, founded by graduates of Tennessee State University (TSU).
The narrative is woven around the classic Terminator High, which transforms into a canvas portraying a heartfelt homage to TSU, encapsulating memories and pride of the Slim & Husky’s founders. The sneaker palette narrates the TSU tale with deliberate splashes of red and blue, while the animal print overlays add a bold statement, reminiscing the vigor of college days. The “1912” embroidery on the forefoot stands proud, marking the inception year of TSU, grounding the story in rich history.
Adding a personal touch, Slim & Husky’s brand essence is tastefully integrated into this commemorative design. Their logo finds a cozy spot on the insoles, whispering about the entrepreneurial journey of TSU alumni. The woven label elegantly carries the Slim & Husky’s name and a playful “GET GEEK’D” etched on the backside of the tongue, adding a dash of whimsy to the collaborative spirit.
