Nearly two decades ago, at a time when rapper sneaker collaborations were a rarity, Nike embarked on a unique venture by producing friends and family editions of Air Force 1s branded with the Terror Squad insignia for the legendary rapper Fat Joe. These sneakers, originally never intended for public consumption, gained notoriety when a former member of Fat Joe's camp sold a handful of pairs to the public.
Since then, these kicks have been in high demand but remained elusive to all but the most connected and deep-pocketed sneaker enthusiasts. However, a significant shift is on the horizon as at least two pairs of Terror Squad Air Force 1s are slated to make their retail debut next summer.
Fat Joe confirmed this exciting development during a recent interview on Full Size Run. He also hinted at the existence of another exclusive friends and family colorway that may see the light of day. Interestingly, Virgil Abloh, the late visionary designer, had previously approached Fat Joe with the idea of collaborating on Off-White x Terror Squad Air Force 1s. This proposal ultimately led to a partnership between Nike and Fat Joe to create the upcoming retail releases.
Fans and sneakerheads got a sneak peek of what's to come when Fat Joe proudly showcased a sample of the Terror Squad x Air Force 1 in white, grey and pink colors last month, right from the courtside at Madison Square Garden. The specific colorways scheduled for release next year have yet to be unveiled, leaving enthusiasts eagerly awaiting further details.
As recently announced by Fat Joe on Instagram, the highly anticipated Blackout Terror Squad x Nike Air Force 1 will officially hit retail shelves on September 16, with a price tag of $150. This exciting development marks a significant moment for sneaker aficionados, as they eagerly anticipate the chance to finally own a piece of rap and sneaker history. Stay tuned for more updates as the story continues to unfold.
