Life is all about full-circle moments, and today we have another one. Do you remember back in the day when Grant appeared in a series of Sprite commercials throughout the ’90s? Well, the two are linking back up once again to launch a limited-edition FILA Grant Hill x Sprite Set which consists of a two-piece capsule sneaker and shorts set that pays homage to those iconic 90s ads. In celebration of this special release, this new FILA and Sprite campaign offers a fresh twist on the classic spot from 1995 with an updated 2021 spin. 

Now 26 years later, the Hall of Famer and seven-time All-Star is appearing once again wearing the Grant Hill 1, his first signature silhouette with FILA, but this time around with a specialized Sprite treatment.

The Grant Hill 1 x Sprite ($140) features reflective detailing throughout and Sprite-inspired graphics. The silhouette’s colorway mixes white, blue, and Sprite’s iconic green hue. Design elements include embroidered logos, as well as Sprite branding on the tongue, heel, sock liner, and outsole beneath the ice rubber. Additional details include pull tabs on the tongue and heel, and a padded tongue and collar. Rounding out the silhouette is a perforated toe box.

The Grant Hill x Sprite Short ($68) features the Sprite and Grant Hill logos, created in a color palette that ties back to the sneaker. Additional design details include striped and solid trims.

This exciting announcement is just in time for the start of the NBA season today where you can also catch Grant as an analyst on NBA TV.
