2017 has been a hallmark year for FILA. The athleisure staple has reclaimed the attention of the streetwear community and made new fans as well. Its iconic box script logo that is brandished with a bit of red can be seen on stylists and celebrities who appreciate the brand’s history with youth culture.
To punctuate its own output, FILA has created some smart partnerships with other industry leaders. Hello Kitty and Urban Outfitters are among the bunch of collaborators in which we’ve seen co-branded apparel and footwear that FILA loyalists can get excited about. Along with these releases, we recently learned that the first African FILA flagship will be located in Cape Town, South Africa. This is a huge step forward and demonstrates that the brand is here to stay for the long haul.
To end the year, we’ve rounded up the best FILA collaborations that you can still shop. Select your favorites below and cop before the chance is gone.
