During the “Extraordinary: Stan Lee” tribute in Beverly Hills, FILA gifted Marvel’s legend with his very own FILA Original Fitness in Cream and Navy colorways.
A total of ten bold colors are embroidered along the rear collar that represent Lee’s iconic Marvel characters: Spider-Man, Incredible Hulk and Iron Man. His famous moniker, “NUFF SAID,” is visible on the translucent outsoles, while the “Extraordinary: Stan Lee” logo adorns the heels. The second pair, which was signed by Stan Lee, was given to the winner of an auction in support of Omaze and Make-A-Wish.
VIP guests were treated to a second version of the Stan Lee Marvel FILA Original Fitness dressed in FILA’s iconic White, Navy and Red colorway. The VIP pair also features the 10 colors representing Lee’s most iconic Marvel characters in addition to Stan Lee’s signature in Gold. This version also includes “NUFF SAID” graphics on the quarters and a Gum rubber sole.
“Mr. Lee is a true icon who has contributed to our culture and to artists like myself,” said Mark Eggert, VP Footwear Design & Advanced Concepts at FILA. “His creations have meant so much to me, from the time I was doodling as little kid up until now, as a parent. I get to have my kids share in those same characters and those same adventures. This has been a passion project and we are excited as a brand to be able to honor Mr. Lee in this way.”
As of now, FILA has no plans to release either pair for retail. We’ll keep you updated if things end up changing.
