Fila Presents Alumni Collaboration
Fila and New York-based retailer, Alumni, have teamed up for a one-of-a-kind collaboration. Choosing the Overpass runner silhouette as the ideal canvas for this collab, the shoe pays homage to one of the best pastries in Caribbean bakeries.
Found mostly in pizzerias and bodegas across the five boroughs of New York, the Jamaican beef patty is a pastry that’s best served by authentic Caribbean bakeries. As a result, Alumni’s first sneaker collaboration with Fila, Jamaican beef patty became the choice for inspiration. The runner silhouette is dressed in a yellow pigskin suede upper. The same coloration is also evident in the molded heel clip and leather sock-liner. While the colorway choice fits the inspiration well, the other product hits are also on point. The toe-box trim features a debossed design similar to that of the beef patty crust. The pair sits atop a white midsole and a translucent outsole, which features an all-over beef patty illustrated print. The brown leather insole represents the filling and features a beef patty logo sandwiched between the Fila and Alumni logos. Additional branding is found on the tongue with the Alumni “A” adopting the Fila font in red and blue, Fila 93 script font is on the counter and the Fila “F” on the collar.
The Fila x Alumni collaboration is scheduled to drop on Saturday, July 9 at 12 P.M. EST and will be available at Alumni and alumniofny.com for $100.
