I spent a couple of hours down at Fila, checking out their Spring 09 footwear and apparel collections. The brand, which was quite popular in the 80’s and 90’s has taken quite a hit in the past decade, and in working to rebuild their brand in this country, as previously announced in Footwear News, they will be releasing a few higher profile collaborations with a celebrity, and some key hip retailers. First up, I’ve got a sneak peek at the upcoming releases for their collaboration with powerhouse Los Angeles sneaker retailer Sportie LA.
The collection consists of 3 ladies sneakers using the new high-top Melrose model, as well as 3 men’s using the classic F-13 model. The sneakers all make use of adventurous color, and themes, and many feature 3M reflective material to give them an extra pop. Two of the women’s sneakers have a splatter paint theme, and the third, an electric keystone-top motif, while the men’s follow more of a classic 8-bit video game theme.
After the jump, check out all of the sneakers which are set to release on December 10th at Sportie LA in-store and online.
