For some of the first snow in New York I had to get out and shoot — so I brought the FILA Spoiler ‘Royal Beginnings’ with me.
When we first caught wind in February that FILA was bringing back the Spoiler I knew I had to have a pair. It was a classic worn by Grant Hill (one of my favorite players) and it had a strap — I was sold.
In November, FILA launched its ‘Royal Beginnings’ pack and the Spoiler from that drop was calling me. I didn’t know you could get pigskin suede for $90, but this suede is legit. Add gold embroidery and gum bottoms and you’ve got a winner.
Fit note: I’m a widefooter and after rocking the sneaker for a few days I know I could have gone down half a size for a better fit. Also, make sure you give this tooling time to break in.
The FILA Spoiler ‘Royal Beginnings’ is available now at fila.com for $90.
