FILA 95: Return of the “Grant Hill 1”

July 22, 2013 BY / 12

THE GRANT HILL 1


It would be unfair to say that the Grant Hill 1 is completely unlike anything that came before it. There are some pretty obvious design cues unmistakably inspired by the Air Jordan IX, but despite some general similarities, the first Grant Hill shoe still managed to break some new ground in the realm of basketball shoes. With a lower pricepoint than an Air Jordan, the Grant Hill 1 offered a more affordable, yet still enticing alternative to consumers who wanted to rep the shoes of one of their favorite players.


The Grant Hill 1 debuted a unique closure system with wide gillies running the length of the shoe for a custom fit and various options for lacing. Aside from the technical innovations in the construction, the ultimate standout feature of the shoe was the extra large Fila branding on the side of the outsole – a concept that soon went into heavy rotation as the brand continued to explore the possibilities of incorporating bold graphic elements on their soles while still maintaining optimum traction and flexibility.
