After 18 NBA seasons, 7 All-Star appearances, 1 Olympic Gold Medal and 5 FILA signature shoes, basketball veteran Grant Hill is being inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. To celebrate that, the brand FILA pays him a wonderful tribute on its social media channels.
FILA managed to snag Hill, and proceeded to create one of the best signature basketball sneaker lines of the mid-to-late ’90s. Hill and FILA totalled five shoes together, proving that an underdog brand can be a success.
The Hill series was one of the more successful sneaker lines at a time — when Air Jordan, adidas, and Reebok were a major part of the competition. 20 years later, FILA Grant Hill signature collaboration remains a favorite in the sneaker community.
