Today, FILA unveils a special-edition footwear design, the FILA Spoiler x Grant Hill “Draft Day,” celebrating the 25th anniversary of the year Grant Hill was drafted into the NBA.
FILA first signed Grant Hill in 1994, when he was selected by the Detroit Pistons as the third overall draft pick. Last fall, the brand reunited with the Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer with a lifetime endorsement deal.
Hill wore the Spoiler during his rookie year prior to the development of his own signature shoe. This version of the FILA Spoiler features a white leather build with accents of black. A bold green and white graphic pattern appears on the shoe’s iconic strap closure and insole, designed to pay homage to the tie that Hill wore on Draft Day in 1994.
“When I got off to that hot start in my professional career, right out of the gate, I was wearing the Spoiler,” said Hill. “This is the shoe that started the journey for me and the release brings back a lot of wonderful memories.”
The FILA Spoiler x Grant Hill “Draft Day” retails for $90 and is available now in limited numbers — 94 pairs to be exact, another nod to Hill’s Draft Day selection. If you were interested in grabbing a pair they’re available now at FILA.com.
