Removing the branding from the classic FILA 96, this collaborative lifestyle rendition from BAIT celebrates Grant Hill’s life after basketball. Officially titled the BAIT x FILA 96 “The Next Chapter”, the subtle yet smooth composition from the Los Angeles shop is inspired by the 7-time All-Star’s retirement and new television career. Constructed with a rich nubuck upper in dark grey and black, leather detailing also mixes in throughout the shoe, which is finished off with luxurious red contrast on the inner lining and outsole. Subbing in a perforated patch where the FILA branding is normally seen, as well as leaving the tongue blank, the only branding comes on the rubber toe cap and BAIT stamps on the velcro heel straps. Tell us what you think of these brand-less FILA 96s in the feedback space below, and take the BAIT when these release July 26th.
