(FILA North America) - October 29, 2021 - FILA celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Grant Hill 2, one of the most iconic signature basketball silhouettes, with a special-edition style. This release honors the brand's long-standing relationship with Hill, who began his professional career with FILA and became a lifetime ambassador for the brand in 2018.
The Grant Hill 2 is among FILA’s most coveted and recognizable sneakers. It was the second in a series of performance basketball shoes developed for Hill in the 90’s, and it is still popular today for its bold graphic design and innovative material usage.
Offered in both men’s and kid’s sizing, the new Grant Hill 2 25th Anniversary was created in two original colorways, black and white/navy, and is constructed out of premium materials. Design details mimic the original release, with personal touches such as Hill’s embossed signature on the quarter, and embroidered logos on the tongue, quarter and heel. The 25th Anniversary branding appears throughout, as the number can be seen on the heel, sock liner, sidewall and outsole, where it is featured beneath an ice insert.
The Grant Hill 2 25th Anniversary apparel consists of tees, hoodies, pants, in a color palette of black, white, navy, and red. The apparel features Hill’s signature on the front of the tees and hoodies, and above the left knee on the pants. Hill’s outline is featured on the back of the hoodies. Additional details include the 25th anniversary and Grant Hill logos throughout.
The Grant Hill 2 25th Anniversary footwear (Kids $80 and Men’s $150) is available today, October 29, at select retailers, while both the footwear and special-edition apparel ($38 - $88) will be available on FILA.com on November 9th.
