Fila OG 96
I would prefer to have a real 2A instead of just foam, but thats me. As for the leather they have a few pair branded premium, whatever that means.
Yo I just picked up a pair of these and I thought they were fake LOL. The whole damn shoe is now Full Synthetic leather! SMH It smells and feels like fake Jordans. They even rolled the toe box, there is no stitching WTF!
That foam that Fila uses is pretty comfy, used them as work shoes until I had to throw them out due to them getting so much paint on them (house painter here).
I’ve tried on those premium versions and they’re great. My only problem with them is that the didn’t cut the bottom parts of the tongue properly. There is excess material that hangs, rolls up and rests at the where your toes begin once you put the shoes on. It’s terribly uncomfortable.
the 2A in the original gh 2 was just for show. it was placed at the bottom of a cut out of the hard midsole then they put clear rubber plastic over it. i pulled that **** a part in high school. it was basically a silver dollar sized inflated whoopy cushion with bumps. no impact protection whatsoever. there was little bit air in it but when u squeezed on it it went flat.
the retro midsole is much better. much more forgiving. the og midsole was pretty firm with little give.
@TURBO UNO They've actually got Grant Hill back in the fold so it's strange that they aren't using his logos.
I agree with you completely on the overall quality. They are doing some things right and a whole bunch of things wrong.
Waiting on a sale on Fila.com to pick up the GH lows. Have no interest in rocking the OG mids anymore. Too big and bulky.
That left jacket go hard af with these
For some strange reason I’ve been feeling the strange urge to cop some retro fila b-ball shoes lately ...maybe a pair of these or
Champs just did a collab with rugrats and fila...has to grab the tee...thought about the shoes but wack silhouette choices. Wanted the hat but I think it’s only at one champs downtown NY. If anybody run across it lemme know I need it
Man.... Grant Hill 2s... man.... middle school for me...
Just waiting patiently for the OG GH4!!
Release the Muscle Ball already !
bro whats the top, white purple and green one?
Called a fila mb I think u can search it on google and find em for not too much
Might have to cop the 96's. In 2014, I was copping a ton of FILA retros.
Man!.... u and me both ive been patiently waiting every since they dropped the 97s like 4 or 5 yrs ago Lol
Not gonna lie , the quality on the new 96s are better than the 2004 retros , 2007 and the 2013 retros
These might be close to the og
Now we need a proper gh1 retro, FILA straight messing them up
The 2007 pair was nice
What’s up NT! Can anyone please help legit check this? I can’t seem to find any info on what year Retro this was released. I think it’s a euro release and something about a Heritage pack release? The blue suede on this pair is very grainy and very good quality in my opinion but it’s not the same like the OG’s where the blue parts are like durabuck of some sort. The box tag also is different like it’s for euro release as the UK size comes first before the US size and the model number is different. Any input is much much appreciated:
^^^ where did you find these?
Ebay purchase. Seller is from Italy and has 5600+ transaction 99.8% feedback rating.
Saw the 96/GH 2 at Foot Locker today. So glad they made it there because o know in a matter of a few months they will be heavily discounted! I’ll grab the mids and lows for a great price.
^ My thoughts exactly
So no Fila '95 experts here on NT that can shed info on the Fila '95 I posted a couple of post above? I can't seem to find anything on the net about this and I'm still leaning towards some kind of a Euro release?
