Fila Grant Hill 1: A comeback shoe from 1995

Legendary NBA icon Grant Hill may have retired from the game, but his first signature shoe, the 1995 Grant Hill 1, continues to score points to this day among hoop fans. The Grant Hill series was Fila’s successful entry to the early basketball era dominated by the Air Jordans, Nike Foamposites, Adidas Crazy, and Reebok Answer lineups.

If you've missed the first retro release of the Fila 95, aka Fila Grant Hill 1, there's no reason to fret. The brand releases remakes in lighter packages sporting the OG style plus a wider variety of colors for men and women. 

What this retro shoe brings to the table

  • Fila drops the suede finish seen on the original version's mudguard and neoprene on the tongue in place of synthetic leather. The use of non-leather on this shoe makes it much lighter.
  • Like the NBA Hall of Famer's signature shoes, this reinterpreted one is built with a thickly cushioned ankle collar and midsole for comfort and support. 
  • The forefoot comes with perforations for enhanced ventilation.
