As a brand synonymous with game-changers across sports, style, culture and music, it is only fitting that FILA will help honor Marvel legend and pop culture icon Stan Lee today, August 22nd, during the “Extraordinary: Stan Lee” tribute taking place at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.
The event, hosted by Chris Hardwick and “Powered By FILA,” will honor the life and storied career of Mr. Lee. It will be live streamed to more than 200 theaters nationwide. Check out extraordinary.live for additional information.
As part of FILA’s tribute, the brand has also designed a custom shoe to be presented to Mr. Lee live at the end of the evening. The exclusive footwear puts a Stan Lee spin on a classic FILA silhouette and was created by Mark Eggert, Vice President, Footwear Design & Advanced Concepts at FILA and a life-long Stan Lee fan. Only two pairs of the FILA Original Fitness x Stan Lee shoes will be made, including one for Mr. Lee and one for the event’s Omaze winner in support of Make-A-Wish®. A second footwear silhouette was designed exclusively for the tribute event’s VIP participants.
Stay tuned for a closer look at these custom FILA x Stan Lee styles.
