Fila has linked with Akomplice, a socially and environmentally conscious streetwear brand, for an apparel and footwear capsule collection to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Here’s the footwear.
This collaborative Original Fitness continues to explore Akomplice’s fascination with the beautiful and lush landscapes of Mexico.
An ode to the Yucatán and Riviera Maya coastline, each design element of the shoe is inspired by the region’s ecosystem; the jungle foliage and Caribbean Sean appear in light green on the insole, tongue tag, and heel, while the purple outsole and lining represent ocean coral and the delicious fruit native to the tropical locale. The shoe’s light brown base pays tribute to the sand and limestone the region is known for.
The Yucatán and Riviera Maya coastline have been creative inspiration for Akomplice; the brand just travelled to the mystical pink lakes of Las Colorafas in Quintana Roo for a recent lookbook and co-founder Patrick Liberty calls the town of Akumal home.
Each pair of the Fila x Akomplice Original Fitness ‘Yucatan’ will come in a color-matched box bearing the Akomplice maxim “3rd Eye Open / Made In Love.” This limited release will be available exclusively at Akomplice’s webstore on Cinco de Mayo.
Thoughts on Fila’s latest collaboration? Aren’t iguanas cool as f***?! I love them.
