Nike Terminator TZ (Ueno VS Harajuku)
The Harajuku vs Ueno pack is a sly wink to the 90s style boom that swept through the sleepy streets of Harajuku, and the underground boom in American fashion that erupted in Ueno during the US postwar occupation.
Ueno was notorious as a blackmarket where US service clothing and military supplies could be bought for a practically nothing.
In honor of this tradition, the Ueno Terminator has a checkered heel design that mimics the woven badge decorations found on the left breast of a military jacket. The removable heel patches are affixed with velcro in another nod to utilitarian military apparel, and the letters ‘AMYK’ refer to the bustling Amyoko street market in Ueno.
The Harajuku Terminator is a more futuristic featuring a green glow-in-the-dark midsole and piping that captures the innovative and out-there spirit of this world famous designer hub. The ‘CTST’ heel patch refers to the famed Cat St shopping destination that runs through the district. Both of these are incredible.
