You Fila them?
Word association. When you hear or read the word Fila, what comes to mind? Grant Hill, Jerry Stackhouse, 1995 are common answers. But do you remember The Cage? Fila released this basketball gem back in 1993, when “Hip Hop Hooray” and Cross Colours were IT. Stare at The Cage for a few seconds and you’ll hear Treach rapping. It’s true, don’t question it.
Now 19 years later The Cage will see the light of day again. This reissue stays pretty faithful to the original, right down to the ornate overlay configuration and vented neoprene cage at the heel. Shown here in Black/Red/White, White/Blue/Red and Black/Purple, expect these in Spring 2012 along with its offshoot Fila Cage Runner. Official release info will be distributed when it wants to be.
