Fila Grant Hill 3: From the hardcourts to the streets

In 1994, Fila partnered with Grant Hill after being drafted for the NBA by the Detroit Pistons. Throughout his career with the Detroit, Hill wore Fila basketball shoes, which turned Fila into one of the most popular brands on the hardcourts.

As one of the brand's most celebrated endorsers, Fila awarded Grant Hill his very own signature basketball lineup. This series has caught many music fans' eyes as it was seen worn by several artists at their concerts.

In 1997, the brand unveiled the third in the Fila x Grant Hill series and dubbed it as Fila 97. It was renamed Fila Grant Hill 3 when it was retroed in 2015. The Fila Grant Hill 3 reflects a never-out-of-style look, which is why Fila has decided to release this model in countless colorways over the years. 

What's new?

Fila upgraded the Grant Hill 3 in 2020 as part of the GH3ONE3 2020 collection. This limited-edition model is dressed in teal, black, yellow, and red hues to pay homage to the Detroit Pistons. It was updated with fine leather and suede overlays and kept the lightweight EVA on the midsole with bulky counter wrap.
