FILA 95 Retros
The resurrection of the FILA 95 Retros are the perfect send off for a seven-time NBA All-Star, who retired at the end of the 2013 season. Grant Hill debuted the classic FILA during his ’94 – ’95 season when he shared Co-Rookie of the Year honors with Jason Kidd. Originally named the FILA Grant Hill I, the FILA 95 Retros are a part of FILA’s “Re-Introduced Pack.” The collection re-establishes an OG style signature to the mid ‘90s and is highly anticipated by both FILA and its supporters. These 95 Retros come in two colorways: navy/white/red, reminiscent of Grant Hill’s on court colors, and black-on-black .
FILA is attempting to educate today’s youth of the brand’s historic models. Shoes that today’s older, sneakerhead generation hold dear to their hearts. The “Re-Introduced” Pack is leading this movement and knocking down the walls separating generations. Younger sneaker enthusiasts now see what was once called the FILA Grant Hill I as a fresh 95 Retro. Thank you FILA for getting us back in touch with these timeless classics and letting the young crowd know what retro really looks like.
As indicated above, the FILA 95 Retros come in either navy/white/red or black-on-black. This model sports a leather and nubuck exterior with perforation on the toe box allowing for breathability. The FILA logo is placed on the tongue and midsole of the shoe attracting potential “double takes” when walking the city. FILA did a fantastic job at making the 95 Retros a near-perfect replica of the FILA Grant Hill I. Bravo!
The FILA 95 Retros are set to release September 19, 2013, in-store at UBIQ Walnut and UBIQlife.com for $90. Phone orders also accepted at (215) 988-0194.
