Fila is Reviving the Mindblower with the Help of 50 Collaborators

Originally released in 1995, the Fila Mindblower is making a comeback in 2018. With the help of 50 unique collaborators, the Fila Mindblower and Mindblower 2.0 are ready to hit the shelves tomorrow.

The Fila Mindblower, a ’90s running shoe, is most known for its odd and oversized logo that can easily be spotted on a pair from down the block. In addition to relaunching the original sneaker, Fila has tapped several collaborators to put unique touches on the Fila Mindblower 2.0, a slip-on contemporary version of the original.

Collaborations on both models include collaborators such as Pink Dolphin, Avenue, Burn Rubber Detroit, Good Kicks, Lafayette, and Sneaker Junkies.

Beginning tomorrow, April 20, all 50 collaborations on the Fila Mindblower and Mindblower 2.0 will be available in limited quantities online and in-store at the three global pop-up events Fila will host. The NYC pop-up marks the first retail experience for Fila in New York in over a decade, according to Footwear News.

In addition to all the collaborations, the Fila Mindblower will drop in four general release colorways — black/white, blue/white,all white leather, and all black Filabuck — for $80 each.
