Is Fila finally ready, in its 100th anniversary year, to once again rise to a promient role in the sneakerhead scene? The Italian-born brand has been subject to a South Korean takeover since they were last relevant when Grant Hill was tearing up the NBA in the mid/late ’90s, but several recent previews suggest Lil’ Scrappy’s footwear label of choice will be making a push in 2012. But why wait until next year when the Fila Lite Pack is already dropping in time for the holidays, this set comprised of the Cage Runner-like Fila Cherchi Lite, Covert Lite, Salva Lite and Corsa each offering low-profile Euro styling in simple yet vibrant colorways. Check out the entire collection after the jump then look for these at select retailers like Sole Recon.
