stackhouses were THE shoe growing up
Great pic fam, it gives me that old school vibe with the hi champion socks.....I could see this on a billboard somewhere...
these are dope Fila D-Up
Wow....memories!!!! I'd kill for those black joints in a low. I remember being in Europe in the summer of '92 trying to find those and struck out everywhere. They had every other possible colorway there though.
There might be plans for that I see Fila Europe is under construction but you should be able to snag a few pairs off eBay
@TRIFE, The black white and white black were two of the must haves! I remember back in the day i had the white with black midsoles heres some of the original ad's and Martin Lawrence rocking the classics hosting Def Comedy Jam. They could do the FX-100 in so many colorways and it just works, looks classy and different. Can't really put my finger on why I love this shoe so much more than the Air Force 1 but the silhouette IMO just looks better.
Those old school for real
Thx man. Yeah I have a whole stack of Champion gear, the brand might have dropped out of favor for some, but I've pretty much just carried on rocking them since the '90s.
T-shirt/hoodie -Jeans/sweats -kicks ...my fashion style hasn't really changed for the past 20 yrs or so
I also just noticed that pic is back to front...
Tre: Yeah, unfortunately that Euro Fila site has been "under construction" for like a year now, so they're not exactly making it a priority smh -Like you said, I'll just keep looking on ebay and see if I can snag a pair on there
Fire have you checked out packer shoes? Not sure if they ship internationally but they still have some of the FX's been loviiiiiiiiiing my pair, broke them out again for today
Yeah I got the Cages from Packer, but the shipping cost wasn't far off the same as the shoes.
I'll probably just be patient and wait a while for the FXs -That's what I did with the Omni Zones and ended getting them for 50 Euros.
Love that pair you're rocking there Tre, the White/blue and Black/white CWs are the only pairs I'm interested in
Alright, I just ordered my retro Fila FX-100 in the White/Black colourway and upon inspection, I'm very disappointed
The first thing I noticed was the weight. The OG's were noticeably heavier than these retros.
Then I looked at the uppers: the leather - if you wanna call it that - is very, very, VERY thin.
But the worse are the soles:
- The OG's and even the retros a few years back used solid rubber and the soles were stitched to the uppers. On these? only the red parts look and feel like rubber, the rest (black part) of the soles look and feel like...plastic.
- The soles are only glued to the uppers (no stitching all around the midsole like the OG's/first retros)
- The sole overall is thinner (the OG's/first retros were thicker).
That said: I'd give them a 3/10. Okay for nostalgia, but cop on the serious discount if you can.
Some Fila's look like Sky Force 180's IMO
Gotta get my hands on a pair. I held the new FX but didn't try them on. They looked good but I need to pick up a set and compare them to my OG's.
Guru x Fila x GH =
Just seen someone in Fila Bubbles on SN, those would be a dope retro.
just copped the FX 100 in the white/black colorway for like 48$ and some change with a promo code. Had this same colorway when I was a kid. Now only if I can ever find the Grant Hill 2 (1996)
^^^Nice, I need to pick these up quick. Just scooped a pair of these, will post pics once they arrive
yooooo!!! My father had these in black ...they were nice!!! I remember as a kid going with him and he bought these at V.I.M in NYC... you took it back with this!!
^^As I said earlier in this thread... the JamBall is the illest FILA joint (to me).
You guys remember the Fila Mindblower? Such a dope shoe, Ruxxx I definitely think the jam ball is one of their best
just received my FX-100 and im lovin them. Turning alot of heads. found these OG cage in size 12 on ebay cheap too if anybody wanna check em out
if these were original tennis' maybe i might have copped. just good to see fila getting up period
damn fila needs to retro the grant hills and stackhouses
Just a heads up FILA is running some type of design competition time is up on June 15th but you can design right through their app on their Facebook page

Grant Hills were the best FILAs
