Size and fit

The Fila Disruptor Low is offered in both the ladies' and gentlemen's measurements. According to Fila, the Disruptor Low is running large and has a narrow fit, and for these reasons, the brand recommends the customers to buy the shoe on a size larger than their accurate measurements.

The sneaker is designed with a synthetic leather upper to have a better hold on the feet and also to provide additional support. However, the shoe lacks ankle support due to its low top. In exchange for the lack of ankle support, the feet have more freedom of movement.

Fila Disruptor Low Style

This low-cut sneaker by Fila brings back the 90s feels. Aside from its eye-catching chunky sole, the overall design of the Disruptor Low is straightforward, which allows wearers to rock it in several outfits. This pair can be worn with an athletic style by pairing it with a jogger or a sweatpant.

It can also be styled with street outfits or a little bit more of a chic get-up by wearing it with a dress or a shirt or hoodie over casual jeans or shorts. It adapts with any fashion, just like how a chameleon adjusts to its environment. Due to its monochromatic colorway, it can complement the cozy spring and summer outfit.

Notable Features

The Fila Disruptor Low is back with its retro vibes. The tongue and collar of this sneaker is padded for extra support and comfort. The tongue is also designed with a big FILA logo. Aside from the tongue, the logo is also seen on the shoe's side and heel.

The Disruptor Low is designed with a pull tab on the heel and tongue. This pull tab is present to aid in putting the pair on and off easily. The chunky outsole of the pair is made out of an EVA midsole and a rubber sole that has a jagged edges.

Fila Disruptor Low History

Fila's revival is led by the brand's sawtoothed-soled bulky sneaker, the Disruptor, which was initially released in 1996. The 1980s and 1990s vibes inspire the design of the sneaker. This silhouette alone was able to raise the brand's footwear business by over sixty percent in just three seasons. Later on, an updated version was released and is known as the Disruptor II. The two footwear by Fila were able to ride several trends, such as Dad's shoes and ugly sneakers.

Aside from these two, another iteration of the original Disruptor was introduced in the market, the Fila Disruptor Low. Whether the regular footwear buyers love them or hate them, these bulky sneakers are undeniably hard to ignore.

The Fila Disruptor is released in a number of colorways. It is available in pastel colors, which colorways' names are "Phantom Green" and "Peach Blush". Another pale pink version of the shoe is known as "Woodrose". Sticking to pale colorways, right after the release of the "Woodrose", the silhouette is now looking at a paler nude tone. 

Ideal for vintage fanatics, the collaboration of Fila and Patta released an "Antique White" colorway. Following the partnership between the brand and Patta is the collaboration with Holypop, which has a predominantly white upper with a pop of blue found on the upper's stitching, inner lining, and heel tabs. A "Holypop" branding is found on the same hue. The branding is located on the side panel and tongue of the shoe.
