FILA have honoured Marvel Comics legend Stan 'The Man' Lee with his very own personalised pair of kicks. Based on the Original Fitness silhouette, the cream-clad sneakers feature a rainbow of colours at the heel, representing ten of the most iconic characters of the Marvel Universe, including The Hulk, Iron Man and Spider-Man. Each shoe sits atop a translucent outsole, with Lee's catchphrase 'NUFF SAID' printed beneath (though personally we would have opted for 'Excelsior!').
Presented to Lee at the 'Extraordinary: Stan Lee' tribute on Tuesday night, the event's logo has been embroidered on both heels. Just two pairs were created, with the second pair auctioned off on the night to raise funds for Omaze and the Make-A-Wish foundation.
FILA produced a second version of the Original Fitness that was gifted to the event's VIP guests. This white leather rendition features the words 'NUFF' and 'SAID' in place of the standard FILA embroidery, Lee's signature in gold at the heel and event imagery printed beneath gum outsoles.
Unfortunately, there are no plans to release either version of the Stan Lee x FILA Original Fitness in stores, so don't count on bookending your comic book collection with these. Instead, why not check out our list of the greatest comic book colabs?
