The collaboration features four new items: three pairs of footwear in men’s and women’s sizing and one accessory.
Today, FILA is releasing a surprise collaboration with Melissa Shoes, a Brazilian brand that has received worldwide recognition for its usage of sustainably-produced, recyclable PVC plastic. The collaboration features the Melissa Sneaker + FILA, the Melissa Slide + FILA, the Melissa Sandal + FILA, and the Melissa Pochete + FILA (a bumbag).
First is the Melissa Sneaker. Keeping in tune with FILA’s heritage, the Melissa Sneaker + FILA is done up in a combination of FILA’s famous colors: navy, red and white with alternating shoelaces and is made up of Melissa Brand’s unique raw material: plastic. There is also a white and Tiffany Blue colorway as well.
Additionally, the Melissa Slide + FILA is a new take on one of Melissa’s most popular items. While the insole features a striped pattern, the upper features the collaboration’s logo, a nod to the iconic Borg Logo of the 70s.
