FILA and INSTITUTION 18b have come together to launch a new interpretation of FILA’s T-1 Mid silhouette, one of the brand’s signature styles. When developing the collaborative shoe, both sides were inspired by current happenings in the worlds of art, music and culture, blending those genres together for an impressive design.
This FILA x INSTITUTION 18b T-1 Mid is offered in a black and white colorway, which mirrors the exterior of INSTITUTION 18b’s retail space. The shoe is detailed with accents that mimic the asphalt, stucco building, and the white paint interior. The footwear features a printed ivory flag, decorated with an ivory eyelet and waxed laces. The interior of the T-1 Mid has been reconstructed, adding a soft leather lining with FILA branding on the leather tongue label. A RBG woven tab is also featured on the tongue, along with INSTITUTION branding embroidered on the heel tab. Co-branding can also be found on the insole, as well as a transparent midsole which showcases INSTITUTION’s motto, “DONE DEAL,” on the bottom.
FILA and INSTITUTION 18b will launch their collaborative shoe on August 14th.
