FILA has partnered with Tupac Shakur’s estate, “Shakur Estate,” to release a special edition of the FILA Grant Hill 2 that the rapper wore on the cover of his iconic All Eyez On Me album.

American rapper Tupac Shakur, known by his stage name 2Pac, who was murdered on September 13, 1996 in Las Vegas, made an indelible mark on global rap not only for his talent, but also for his commitment and activism for racial egalitarianism.

Considered one of the greatest rappers of all time and elevated to a cultural icon who had an enduring impact that transcends music, Tupac Shakur was also a fashion icon, helping to shape streetwear from a passing trend to a permanent pillar in fashion.

Fans of 2Pac fondly remember the cover of his album All Eyez On Me, on which the rapper wore a denim ensemble, matched with a pair of FILA Grant Hill 2.

Remembering that moment, FILA has partnered with Shakur Estate, the estate of Tupac Shakur, to present the first-ever exclusive footwear collaboration for Shakur Estate and FILA, including two iterations of the FILA Grant Hill 2, and a special edition of apparel and accessories inspired by Shakur’s 90s hip hop aesthetic.

The exclusive FILA x 2PAC collection includes original recreations of iconic items from FILA’s archives and inspired by pieces worn by Tupac,” FILA said. “It ranges from styled tracksuits, logo-laden tees, camo jackets, shorts, and vests, to paisley accents symbolic of his bandanas and his FILA sneaker of choice, the Grant Hill 2.”

Tupac had a distinct sense of style, one that is still emulated by artists and fans today,” Tara Narayan, Senior Vice President of Marketing at FILA North America said. “He was an activist, musician, artist, and icon, and we worked alongside the Estate to curate a special collection that is a true reflection of his aesthetic. Tupac embraced FILA and we are honored to have a small part in honoring a legend.”

The sneaker collection features two styles of the FILA Grant Hill 2 Low, one is a Grant Hill 2 Low x 2PAC ’96 Reissue in the original red/white/navy colorway and the other is a Grant Hill 2 Low x 2PAC special in a brown/white colorway. Both feature a paisley bandana print on the insoles and Tupac’s signature on the side quarter. On the heel of the brown/white Grant Hill 2 Low x 2PAC special, there is a velcro patch featuring Tupac in gothic letters, while on the heel velcro of the other model, it is replaced by the FILA logo. Both shoe styles are packaged in custom shoe boxes with Tupac images and the bandana print.
