As the name implies, the Patches iteration of the Fila Disruptor 2 sneaker features removable Velcro patches in various designs. They are the Fila linear logo, Fila Eclipse logo, Fila stacked logo, and the Fila Disruptor flag. 

The upper of this sneaker is a combination of leather and Velcro quarter. It also has pull tabs both in the heel and at the tongue for easy entry. Furthermore, this shoe uses a rubber outsole similar to the rest of the sneakers in the Fila Disruptor collection.

Fila was founded in 1911 and has established itself as one of the integral brands when it comes to street-style sneakers. However, it was only decades later in 1996 when the first dad shoe, the Fila Disruptor, was launched.  

With the advent of the “ugly sneaker” trend, the shoe was reborn as the Fila Disruptor 2. Because of its popularity, the sneaker was released in several versions, including the Fila Disruptor 2 Patches. 

It carries the same chunky outsole but with a series of removable patches that allow users to mix and match the look of the shoe for a more customized feel.  

  • The Fila Disruptor 2 Patches is fitted with a foam midsole that offers excellent support and in-shoe comfort.
