FILA has seen tremendous success with the return of the MB, both the “Turning Tide” in-line release and the Oneness collaboration, each saw terrific response from consumers.
On May 1st, FILA looks to continue the trend with another original colorway (White/FILA RED/Black) of the MB, which has been called out for consistently by consumers.
In the same fashion as the previously released “Turning Tide” colorway, the “Volcanic” features an iconic-signature design on the midsole, perforation on the upper to go along with a leather/mesh combination on the tongue. Logo detailing appears on the upper, tongue, vamp and back counter. The pair sits on a black rugged-rubber outsole.
While fans of retro basketball will automatically gravitate to the MB, the pack also features another gem in the Mindbender. Originally debuting in 1994, FILA has not retroed this runner in the U.S. since its release, 21 years ago.
This proceeds FILA’s dedication to the retro running market, the last few seasons FILA has provided consumers with many different looks for the Overpass from 1993. The FILA “Volcanic” Mindbender sports a clean look with a upper-combo of black reflective mesh and suede.
The FILA slanted-linear branding appears on the upper-quarter and is carried down into the midsole, as per the original design in 1994. Additionally, the runner is dressed down to a grey midsole with red speckle detailing.
Other details include a two color outsole, back counter reflective detailing, and flat lace options with contrast aglets.
MB (White/FILA RED/Black) – $100
Mindbender (Black/FILA RED/Hi-Rise) – $70
