In the world of sneakers, some releases become iconic because of their rarity and exclusivity. One such example is the Terror Squad x Nike Air Force 1 Lows, which were strictly made for friends and family of the rap group. But now, after almost two decades, Nike has finally decided to release them to the public.
The Terror Squad x Nike Air Force 1 Lows first made an appearance on ESPN’s “It’s the Shoes” show back in 2007. During the segment, Fat Joe, a member of the group, showcased his impressive sneaker collection that included these rare kicks. Fans have been waiting for years to get their hands on a pair of these, and now, they’ll finally have a chance.
The first colorway to be released by Nike features a sleek yin and yang motif. The overlays and Swooshes are made from tumbled leather and come in solid black, while the toe boxes, quarter panels, and interiors are in pristine white. The Terror Squad’s iconic “TS” logo is embroidered onto the lateral heel, and “JC” appears on the back, representing Fat Joe’s nickname, “Joe Crack.”
Sneakerheads and Fat Joe fans alike will be thrilled to hear that these kicks are set to release on August 19, 2023. It’s not every day that a rare sneaker gets a wider release, so this is a moment that should not be missed.
