Tell FILA what you want, and they will deliver. After receiving rave reviews on their AGENDA capsule collection that included the classic FILA Overpass, numerous requests were voiced for a general release, and the brand has quickly responded. Just weeks later, three new makeups of the retro runner will be available as part of the FILA Overpass “RED” Pack. Coming in a trio of brand color schemes, all-suede uppers compose the models in a premium and classic manor. Offered in red, navy blue, and cream colorways, each element features American accents. Pure white midsoles, gum outsoles, and FILA 93 tags throughout all add detailing to these quick drops, which will become available March 6th for $75 at select retailers, including FILA.com.
The story of Fila's transformation from a textiles company into a leading global designer of high-end sportswear has been one of continual evolution driven by a philosophy of innovation that lies at the heart of their most successful designs. In 1923, the Fila brothers officially established the expanding family-run textile business as a high-quality knitwear manufacturing company, entering into a limited partnership named Maglficio Biellese. Through the years, the business grew beyond the borders of Biella to become a well-known quality knitwear producer for Italy. In 1942, the company merged with the Fratelli Fila company, and by 1972 the company had sales of over one billion lire and a total workforce of more than 250 people. Wishing to further expand the company, Giansevero Fila hired Enrico Frachey as the managing director of the firm in 1968. Frachey shared Fila's vision and it was his creativity and managerial resourcefulness that ultimately transformed Fila into a global sportswear brand.
A century after its humble beginnings, Fila has become synonymous with performance and sophistication. Worn not only by internationally recognized athletes, but the fashion conscious, Fila uses premium fabrics designed to radiate the sophistication of Italian craftsmanship, while allowing maximum flexibility and performance.

FILA is establishing itself in the collaborative space for 2014, starting with a recognizable colorway derived from some iconic threads. Joining forces with Eddie Huang’s restaurant in NYC, the BaoHaus x FILA The Cage “Bao Beach” recreates the famous style code of the yellow “Snow Beach” jacket seen originally on Raekwon. A yellow suede upper dominates the composition, while navy and red detailing adds contrast. Navy blue chimes in on portions of the outsole and FILA branding, conjoined with red on the the ankle clip. Personalization comes in the form of a Taiwanese flag on the tongue, sitting on top of “FOB” stitching standing for the owner’s VICE series “Fresh Off the Boat”. Watch for this collaborative FILA The Cage to make its way to the light soon, and keep Nice Kicks streaming for any future developments.
