FILA has collaborated with Sprite to launch a limited-edition take on the Grant Hill 1 nodding to Hill’s iconic Sprite ads.
Grant appeared in a series of Sprite commercials throughout the 90’s. In celebration of this special release, a new FILA and Sprite campaign offers a fresh twist on a classic spot from 1995, picking up 26 years later. Grant again appears wearing the Grant Hill 1, his first signature silhouette with FILA, now recreated with the Sprite treatment.
The Grant Hill 1 features reflective detailing throughout and Sprite-inspired graphics. The silhouette’s colorway mixes White, Blue, and Sprite’s iconic Green hue. Design elements include embroidered logos, as well as Sprite branding on the tongue, heel, sockliner, and outsole beneath the ice rubber. Additional details include pull tabs on the tongue and heel, and a padded tongue and collar. Rounding out the silhouette is a perforated toe box.
In addition to the footwear, the two have also released some shorts featuring the Sprite and Grant Hill logos, created in a color palette that ties back to the sneaker. Additional design details include striped and solid trims.
Check out the additional photos below, and you can find the Sprite x FILA Grant Hill 1 available through Champs, both in-store and online at ChampsSports.com as well as on FILA.com. The retail price tag is set at $140 USD.
Release Date: October 19, 2021
