Before his untimely death in 1996, Tupac released one his greatest works, All Eyez on Me. Printed on the centrefold for the album’s booklet was a now-legendary image of the West Coast rapper decked out in FILA’s brawny Grant Hill 2 baller – known today as the FILA GL 96.
For their final release of 2017, FILA are dropping an ‘All Eyez on Me’ 96. Inspired by the chart-smashing album’s cover art, the sneaker boasts premium black tumbled leather upper and a translucent crimson outsole.
Pac’s iconic crucifix tattoo is printed beneath the sole and the upper’s medial side along with the words ‘ALL EYEZ ON ME.’ The release appears to be an official tie-in with the recent Tupac biopic of the same name. As a finishing touch, the tribute features a paisley print inner lining as a nod to Pac’s signature bandanna.
The FILA GL 96 ‘All Eyez on Me’ will release exclusively through select Japanese stockists on December 23, including atmos.
