FILA and Sprite® Collaborate on Special-Edition Grant Hill Footwear and Apparel
(FILA North America) – October 19, 2021 – FILA has collaborated with Sprite to launch a limited-edition FILA Grant Hill x Sprite Set. The two-piece capsule, consisting of a sneaker and shorts, is a nod 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 x Sprite ($140) 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.
The Grant Hill x Sprite Short ($68) features 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.
The complete FILA Grant Hill x Sprite Set is available now on FILA.com, and the Grant Hill 1 x Sprite footwear is also available through Champs beginning on Thursday, both in-store and online at ChampsSports.com.
