Bottom line

Fila has successfully launched a fresh take on one of its iconic models in the form of the Fila Disruptor 3 Zip. By adding a two-toned zipper and using a combination of pastel colors, sneakerheads can’t stop raving about how attractive the shoe is. 

Fila Disruptor 3 fans need not worry as the zippered version is still constructed with the same comfortable silhouette. This includes the updated laces, chunky sole, and sawtooth tread. Overall, it is one of the dad shoes that will definitely take your style up a notch without hurting your budget.


The Fila Disruptor 3 Zip is a women’s shoe with sizes that run between 5 to 11. Half sizes are available to provide a more accurate fit. While some users may find this kick to be a bit tight, loosening the laces can help in accommodating those who have slightly wide feet. Also, it comes with a functional zipper that allows a bigger opening when putting the shoe on.

Take the dad shoe trend to a higher level with the Fila Disruptor 3 Zip. Available in black, white, and pastel colorways, this chunky shoe blends well with a lot of sporty outfits. It can be paired with black jogger pants, a white, printed tee, and a hooded jacket. 

Like the other dad shoes from Fila, this shoe also looks great with capri pants, ripped jeans, mini dresses, skirts, and denim shorts. 

A unique feature that is found on this shoe that is not found on other Fila Disruptor sneakers is the functional zipper on the lateral side. It adds a touch of style and also allows easy on and off access to the shoe.

Furthermore, the lacing system of the Fila Disruptor 3 Zip has been updated with reinforced gillie construction. The double stitching details throughout the shoe and the perforations on the sidewalls offer superb durability and breathability, respectively.

Way before Nike, Adidas, Balenciaga, and Louis Vuitton joined the dad shoe craze, Fila had already released the first Disruptor sneaker in 1996. With the return of the chunky shoe bandwagon, the Italian brand also re-launched the Fila Disruptor. Now in new colorways and better materials, the shoes not only attract Fila's long-time followers but the "youngbloods" as well.

The Fila Disruptor 3 Zip has an eye-catching zipper that goes well with the overall aesthetic of the shoe. It is available in pastel, white, and black colorways. 

  • The Fila Disruptor 3 Zip is fitted with an EVA midsole for impact support.
  • This dad shoe also comes with a cushioned footbed.
