FILA has teamed up with the Shakur Estate to launch special-edition collection that includes footwear, apparel and accessories.
Previewed below, the FILA x 2PAC collection honors one of the most iconic musical artists in history. Tupac Shakur was a cultural icon with an enduring impact that transcends music. The artist was known for his style as much as he was known for his music. In an era defined by streetwear, he was a trendsetter, and his influence on the aesthetic of 90’s hip-hop and beyond has stood the test of time.
The FILA x 2PAC collection includes original recreations of iconic items from FILA’s archives while also inspired by pieces worn by Tupac. The collection ranges from tracksuits, logo-laden tees, camo jackets, shorts, and vests, to paisley accents symbolic of his bandanas, just to name a few. The collection is highlighted by the Fila Grant Hill 2 Low, Tupac’s FILA sneaker of choice.
“The Shakur Estate is thrilled to have been given the opportunity to celebrate Tupac’s love of fashion by collaborating with one of his personal favorites – FILA,” says the Shakur Estate. Committed to being as authentic as possible, the exclusive FILA x 2PAC collection is inspired by items from Tupac’s own closet. We appreciate FILA and their intention to honor Tupac in this way.“
The FILA Grant Hill 2 was famously worn by Tupac in the iconic album artwork for “All Eyez on Me,” and were a staple in his daily wardrobe. The FILA x 2PAC collection features two Grant Hill 2 low styles.The first being the FILA Grant Hill 2 Low x 2PAC ‘96 Reissue in the original red/white/navy colorway. The second pair is a special Grant Hill 2 Low x 2PAC in a brown/white colorway with design touches such as paisley accents on the sock liners and Tupac’s signature on the quarter. Other details include the shoe’s tongue housing a velcro patch that reveals a “Tupac cross,” while the heel strap is adorned with a gothic Tupac text. Both footwear styles are packaged in custom shoe boxes featuring Tupac imagery and the bandana print.
To round out the assortment, the collection includes accessories such as bucket hats, beanies, and bandanas in colorways that tie back to the apparel and footwear.
The FILA x 2PAC Collection is now available on FILA.com.
