Fila Trailblazers



Fila Trailblazer returns to celebrate its 15th birthday. Pinrolls are optional, but this chunky early '90s hiker is coming back and there'll be 300 of each colour being produced. The shoe itself is pretty much a faithful reproduction of the original. If we're gonna nitpick, which we will, the tongue label is a little more reserved and there are a few perforations missing and the toe box is ever so slightly off, but in comparison the the spectacularly off key retrospective efforts from other companies, this is a quality retro. As well as the classic red there's also a more traditional brown leather version that reiterates the OG hiking feel. As yet there's no word on whether we'll be seeing the return of an all suede variant, though we're sure if this outing proves popular, it can't be too far away
