Back in 2015 FILA brought the Bubbles back out of the vault, for the first time in nearly two decades.
The model was easily the most requested by consumers and devoted fans of the brand. While the silhouette was an instant success that year, the OG release, which is considered to be a very rare gem in the vintage/collector still continues to be a craze on resell markets like eBay. For a brand like FILA a silhouette like this comes down to pure timing. This go around with the OG Black colorway, FILA opts to expand on pairs and sizes.
The origin of the model’s name is pretty apparent with four pods bearing the word FILA in a lateral format. While the model’s side design is the most recognizable feature, another important detail is the outer lacing system, which proves to be a distinctive feature. The pair is made up of a trio of materials including mesh, FILA buck and tumbled leather. Aside from the descending FILA branding on the upper, there is a unique diamond logo on the tongue and FILA “F” on the back ankle pull.

The pairs will come in a custom draw box with branded tissue paper. This release will be available nationwide on December 16th in both men’s and kid’s sizes.
