Fila’s catalog has been co-opted by the casual set, relegating it to more of a lifestyle model. The brand has fully leaned into this trend with the Fila 96, making its active aesthetic feel like a very chilled-out silhouette.

The Fila Vulc 96 finds Grant Hill’s pro model with a vulcanized rubber outsole wrapping around its base and rendering it as deadly off the court as it is on. The upper of the model features a canvas build trimmed in suede and while it still maintains the shape of the shoe, it definitely feels like an entirely new look. The first few pair we are treated to are gray, black and tan and each one makes use of a white vulcanized rubber outsole to accent its tonally-themed upper.

You’ll be able to find the Fila Vulc 96 on Fila.com starting Sept. 11 at $70 a pop.
