Interesting lol, if I was a one of those porno directors. I would of made a Wet Dreams Kicks edition. That's what I would of called it, have them chicks f*ckin in the most flyest kicks from 90s.

 

Now getting back to the Muscle Ball model. Hersey Hawkins wore them during his time with the Supersonics. Some may get them mixed up with the FILA Bubbles model, but Hersey Hawkins or other players in the NBA never wore the Bubbles model. Hersey Hawkins played in the Muscle Ball and they might as well label the Muscle Ball as being his own model cause he was most remembered for wearing them.

This is just amazing, being able to see some Classic models from the FILA Museum that's located in Italy. 8o

I swear they really need to retro that Mind Blower model, the one that's sitting on top of the table. That font that they used on that particular model, it's like a Graffiti Handstyle. One of my grails right there, having a Graffiti background myself. That's why I love that model to death.

FILA Magic Line had one of the most dopest and colorful pieces ever and if you was wondering no this has nothing to do with Magic Johnson and his brand from back in the days. It would be nice to see this piece come back out again cause I'm into those vibrant colors, aside from the more toned down colors that I also like and enjoy. 8)

What a damn shame, here goes a new artictle from this month of Ray Allen explaining why he didn't sign with FILA...

thats a good dodge ray... Fila now is a shell of itself thanks to Fila Korea basically buying da entire brand from its Italian roots and spamming out straight crud.

they gotta go upscale.

Yes, wise decision from Ray, but there's no denying that FILA back in the days was a force to be reckoned with and in the 90s forget about it, they was on top of their game in the sneaker game. They was right there with the other big dogs like Nike, JB, Reebok, Adidas etc. battling it out for the number one spot. You had a numerous of athletes, rappers, celebrities sporting their stuff from the gear to the kicks. Ray Allen actually wore the FILA Muscle Ball on the Slam 96 Rookie Cover. Little by little, they are coming back of course their stuff from their heritage line is.

I don't think Ray really won in the grand scheme of things as he never had a signature under JB - he essentially wore team shoes, inline signatures and retros. With Fila he might've had about 3-4 signatures but we all know he wouldn't be making any royalties or anything due to the brand being borderline defunct presently.

Still it would've been interesting to see the Ray I or Allen II.

My bro @vood99 making some valid points.

 

FILA right now are taking those baby steps to at least be relevant again. I'm seeing more and more people rocking FILA. The only thing that's missing are still those other sneaker gems from their back catalog: Jamball, Runball, Mind Blower, etc. Man, In the 90s FILA took the sneaker industry by storm.

Fila needs to remaster the hill 1, and make em like the og...

My man, you've seen the resurgence of Kappa lately. I think with right apparel pieces (jackets, tops, pants), FILA could make some strides in their clothing division then accordingly there could be spillover into their footwear division.

Yeah, I see that Kappa has been making some noise and I'm really happy about that, hopefully they'll continue on, much success to them. True, FILA just needs to keep doing what they're doing and keep coming out with the stuff from their heritage line. I already see the acceptance amongst the people in the fashion world, now because of that people again are starting to become interested in rocking something that is from the FILA brand. This to me is a really good sign, that probably in a near future we'll also start seeing other different models get retroed.

 

There's a store up in Canada that carries FILA. Here's the link to their instagram page

Thanks bro, those guys are in Ottawa. I'm in Toronto. smile.gif There are some local spots that carry Fila clothing and some shoes. Just not a whole lot of stuff but to be honest I haven't been checking for gear lately.

One thing working against FILA is that their management is entirely Korean now so they might be following trends specific to that region, while Kappa is still very much an Italian company.

It is what it is, I will continue on being optimistic with one my fav. brands! Italian or not they still have their rich history and because of that I think FILA will prevail... This latin trap music video is from this year and you can see that the artist: BAD BUNNY in the beginning of the video is rocking FILA, he's one of the biggest names from that particular genre... This kind of music might not be everyone's cup of tea lol, although I like it. But let's look at the positive that's coming from all this, he's a new school artist and by having these younger artist wear FILA it makes the brand look relevant again. It gives the brand again that ''cool factor'' that it might have been missing.

Yes they need to keep the retros coming and maybe take a stab at making a high quality basketball shoe BC u can't live on heritage forever eventually your gna have to drop something that's relevant in today's market otherwise when we're gone Fila is gone BC these youngsters don't care about Fila

FILA collaborating with these other companies, its actually helping them out with their comeback.

 

FILA should be eyeing one of those players from this upcoming NBA Draft Class. Sign one of them to an endorsement deal and hire a fresh new designer to design his shoes. FILA really needs to get back on the court, they've been MIA for the longest.

I agree...but I ask you this IF they signed a someone from the upcoming NBA Draft Class...what new FILA technology can they present to them to sway them to sign? We all know they cant OUT BID any of the major shoe companies....I mean they damns sure cant use older models as leverage... I can see them maybe getting a international player cuz FILA still doing things overseas but only if not other companies come...but a American athlete...I aint sure bout that
post #5757 of 5815
i think it was explained on here before. signing an athlete wouldnt benefit the brand.

its been suggested that they do so many times before

when it comes to having an athlete sign it all comes down to the dollar amount

tech of the shoe is a non factor
