FILA and Kinfolk have collaborated on limited-edition apparel and footwear styles, set to release on June 21. The capsule collection consists of two polo shirts with matching running shorts, as well as the FILA x Kinfolk Original Fitness footwear, combining both brand’s aesthetics for an update on iconic silhouettes.
The new FILA x Kinfolk fashions include two classic polo styles, offered in seasonal colorways of evening sand and white. The shirts are detailed with stripes of varying widths, and pops of navy to serve as a complement color. The running shorts, also designed in evening sand and white, boast a navy belt at the waist with a FILA F-Box logo clasp. To further fuse both brands, the apparel items are embellished with a dual-branded FILA and Kinfolk embroidered patch.
The collaboration also includes the FILA x Kinfolk Original Fitness silhouette in an evening sand hue that ties back to the apparel. Crafted in hairy suede, the shoe pays homage to each company through a variety of special touches. The footbed reads “Kinfolk 94 Wythe,” a nod to the brand’s Brooklyn event space, while the back heel says “FILA Biella Italia,” a tribute to FILA’s birthplace. The Kinfolk logo is embroidered on the tongue in navy, while tonal details like FILA’s signature flag and the shoe’s laces each appear in evening sand.
The FILA x Kinfolk Original Fitness footwear retails for $100. The polo shirt retails for $80 and the running shorts retail for $65. The collection will be available beginning on June 21.

Kinfolk was formed in 2008 by friends from New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo, Japan. The concept of a “Kinfolk life” evolved from their desire to create products and experiences they’d imagine but couldn’t find to purchase. Combining experience from a variety of disciplines, the group set out to source the highest quality designers, builders and techniques to develop lasting products and unique experiences. As the Kinfolk family continues growing by the day, the missions of working hard and having fun remain steadfast. Even if they don’t always unfold in that order.
