Thanks to a crucial collabo between Fila and Los Angeles streetwear boutique, Bait, “The 96” (AKA The Grant Hills) has next-leveled itself into something that’s more of a refined and premium form – the rich “Filabuck” upper, red leather lining, icy red rubber soles, perforated panels and a leather velcro heel strap with tonal debossed BAIT logos will tell you that. This collaboration was dubbed “The Next Chapter”, in homage to Grant Hill’s post-NBA career. Now to up the level some more, the exclusivity of these kicks are limited to the three BAIT locations in LA. You can’t even find these joints on Fila.com! Hit the jump to find out how you can roboCOP them tomorrow, July 26th.
For all local customers, you can score in-store by using the reservation which is available at all three BAIT locations. Online customers can register now by clicking here: http://blog.baitme.com/index.php/bait-x-fila-96-grant-hill-retro-online-registration/
Don’t sleep, these shoes may seem to be under the hype radar, but trust that the market for them will pick up on the strength of its great looks.
