Akomplice x FILA Original Fitness

by Henrik Buzzi

For Akompice’s latest collaborative creation, they have teamed up with Fila on an apparel and footwear capsule collection. Part ode to Fila’s rich, 106-year history, part personal homage to the magic energy Patrick Liberty and Mike McCarney have experienced in the Yucatan of Mexico. Each aspect of the shoe is inspired by a distinct part of the region’s ecosystem, like the light green on the insole, tongue tag and heel, which represents jungle foliage and the Caribbean Sea. Purple on the outsole, logo and lining stands for ocean coral and the fruit produced by the tropical climate, while the light brown base symbolizes the sand and limestone on which the region is founded. In addition to the kicks, each pair comes complete with a color-matched box that bears the Akomplice maxim “3rd Eye Open / Made In Love.” Quantities of the capsule collection is limited and available exclusively on the Akomplice.
