Fila release original 80s footwear

It's certainly the essence of the day (and definitely the perfect look for Spring Summer 09) - to delve into the vaults and re-issue the retro styles. Fila have the edge on the competition, cutting fine looks in casual, old skool, b-boy frames and managing to cross into understated cool territory with near effortless ease.

As sneaker brands go Fila are a whole lot less in your face and aggressive than the more obvious imprints that spring to mind. For that alone they get our badge of respect, that and the fact that in the late 80s and early 90s they ruled supreme.
