Snipes Celebrates 1998 with New Fila 96 Collaboration

Snipes, a German streetwear shop, celebrated its 20th anniversary this weekend by partnering with several ’90s brands like Fila. To honor 1998, the shop designed a new Fila 96.

Snipes gave the Fila 96 a white, Strong Blue, and Fiery Red look with mismatching patent leather trim on both shoes. SNIPES branding hits the heel strap while the rest of the shoe is done in a synthetic coated leather.

The Fila 96, once known as the Grant Hill 2, is probably the most comfortable sneaker the brand has ever made. The shoe features a resilient foam midsole and Fila’s 2A cushioning chip in the heel for a supremely cushioned ride (you can check out Nightwing2303’s review below).

While many sizes have sold out, the Snipes x Fila 96 is still available at snipes.com for 119,99 € (approx. $145 USD). Matching old school Snipes x Fila gear like tear-away pants, hoodies, and track jackets were also dropped to celebrate the release.

What do you think of this latest Fila 96? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

  1. Such a clean model. I wish the Fila Grant Hill 1 and 2 were permanently available in every store. Like the Air Force Ones.
