Fila Uproot: Chunky. Cool. Cheap

Ugly. Repulsive. These are the common verbs people use when they think about the Fila Uproot. But the truth is, the more we think of it as "a design that goes against the taste of the crowd,'" the more people feel attracted towards it. This unconventional everyday sneaker displays bold features that may look very uncomfortable, but in reality, it boasts its lightness and cushy strides when it is on the feet.

Key features

The Uproot from Fila is made of unique details on its upper extended until its sole. The base textile on its upper is covered with a leather overlay. Found on the heel and across the sneaker is a linear embroidered Fila branding for an authentic retro feel. Meanwhile, its hefty outsole displays a deep tread serrated pattern, which provides durable traction and gives a one-off look.
