The shadows cast on the cement of a playground in Milan are as long as the journey that brought the FILA Grant Hill II from NBA's parquet to become a symbol of contemporary streetwear.
The editorial captures 23 years of sports and hip hop looks in a few shots, finished by FILA Ninetissimo tracksuit, appreciated both among the graffitied walls in a suburban field and by the urban spirits.

 


The silhouette, faithful to the 1996 model, defines the concept of style and nostalgia of the 90s, thanks to a bold but essential yet clean design. Elegant in the details and in the logos of the brand, that stands out on the skin upper.
The history of this sneaker starts on the NBA's floors when it was worn by Grant Hill, champion of
the Detroit Pistons, to get to the streets of Compton, California at the foot of Tupac Shakur.
