Preview two of the sneakers releasing as part of Hill's lifetime deal with FILA.
NBA Hall of Famer Grant Hill recently inked a lifetime deal with FILA, which included retro releases of his '90s basketball sneakers as well as new editions and remixes of Hill's early signature models. Today, FILA has dropped off official images of the Grant Hill 2 "Hall Of Fame" that will be releasing as part of their partnership.
The sneakers come in white leather with navy blue piping, multi-color accents at the heel of the midsole and metallic gold detailing on the heel tab. Additionally, there's a black leather rendition featuring a white outsole and the same multi-color detailing about the heel of the shoe. The kicks will reportedly retail for $120 each.
Hill, who was selected third overall out of Duke, signed with Fila when he entered the NBA in 1994 and became just the fourth NBA player to have a signature shoe for his rookie season.
"Fila was there for my first professional steps on the court," Hill said, per ESPN. "We have now come full circle, and I am thrilled to be a part of the family once again."
"Fila is proud to have been a part of Grant's history, partnering with him when he was drafted into the league," said Jon Epstein, president of Fila North America. "Grant was a tough yet graceful competitor. He possesses a strong work ethic and has demonstrated resilience and perseverance."
Despite Hill's lifetime deal and the rerelease of some of his classic sneakers, ESPN's Nick DePaula reports that Fila isn't expected to make a return to the performance basketball sneaker landscape anytime soon. Instead, Fila will focus on reestablishing their retro business with a focus on Hill.
