FILA and Shakur Estate Launch Collection Honoring Tupac

If you’ve ever been to Cali, then you definitely know “California Knows How To Party.” Nobody brought the party better than Tupac, and that’s a sentiment that continues to ring true till this day. By now, you all should be familiar with Pac’s cultural impact on both music and fashion (check out the style article we did for his birthday here), as style was a part of his story and his legacy has left a lasting mark. In an era defined by streetwear, he was a trendsetter, and his influence on the aesthetic of 90’s hip-hop and beyond has stood the test of time.

With that, in partnership with the Shakur Estate, FILA has launched a special-edition collection of apparel, accessories and footwear to honor one of the most iconic musical artists in history. This marks the first-ever exclusive footwear collaboration for the Shakur Estate with FILA.

The exclusive FILA x 2PAC collection includes original recreations of iconic items from FILA’s archives and inspired by pieces worn by Tupac. It ranges from styled tracksuits, logo-laden tees, camo jackets, shorts, and vests, to paisley accents symbolic of his bandanas and his FILA sneaker of choice, the Grant Hill 2. 

Aren’t you just excited? Well we are. This collection is loaded with apparel. Here’s everything we’ve got to look forward to:

The FILA x 2PAC collection includes… a wide range of hoodies, joggers, long sleeve crewnecks, and tees that come in white, navy and brown with a co-branded FILA and 2PAC crest logo. Then we’ve got the mesh logo jerseys in three different colorways, each with FILA emblazoned across the chest. Next up are two matching sets with a jacket and cargo pants designed in both a camo print and light gray hue, and two vests that are also offered in those same colorways.

Rounding out the featured apparel are two classic tracksuits in brown and navy, and boxer shorts designed with either the paisley bandana print or an all-over FILA graphic print.

As you all know, the FILA Grant Hill 2 were famously worn by Tupac in the iconic album artwork for “All Eyez on Me,” and remained a part of his regular wardrobe. In fact, among the personal items on display at the “Tupac Shakur: Wake Me When I’m Free” museum experience earlier this year, were Tupac’s Grant Hill 2 sneakers, which are also included in the collection. In addition to the Grant Hill 2 Low x 2PAC ‘96 Reissue in the original red/white/navy colorway, the collaboration also includes a special Grant Hill 2 Low x 2PAC in a brown/white colorway.

Both footwear styles are packaged in custom shoe boxes featuring Tupac imagery and the bandana print.

To round out the assortment, the collection includes accessories such as bucket hats, beanies, and bandanas in colorways that tie back to the apparel and footwear. This epic campaign was shot at the “Tupac Shakur: Wake Me When I'm Free" exhibit in Los Angeles. Earlier this year, a selection of custom FILA merchandise was also available exclusively at the museum’s gift shop.

The FILA x 2PAC collection will be available on FILA.com beginning on October 4.
