After bringing back the Grant Hill III aka the 97, Fila has dug back into their 90s vault for their next release.
Previewed in 2014, Jamal Mashburn's classic Mashburn 1 is set to be retroed for the first time. Renamed the Fila MB, this original white, black and prince blue colorway is set to kick things off. They are a part of the 'Turning Tide' Pack, which also includes an all-new colorway of the Overpass.
For fans of the Mashburn 1, this retro features original details such as perforations on the upper, a leather and mesh combination on the tongue, classic design on the midsole and a rugged-rubber outsole. The Overpass switches things up, taking the prince blue accent color found on the MB and using it to cover the entire upper, which is made up of mesh and suede. In addition, the runner also features a speckled midsole, blue outsole, black accents, a 3M reflective back heel counter and a green toe guard.
The 'Turning Tide' Pack hits fila.com as well as select Fila retailers on Friday, April 10 in limited quantities.
