History has a funny habit of repeating itself, especially when it comes to fashion. If you’re someone who is hyper-aware of current fashion trends or someone who works in a shoe shop then you’ll know that Fila Disruptors are at the forefront of fashion right now. Just like Marmite, you’ll love them or hate them.
So what’s wrong with them? Well… what’s right with them? If you’ve seen the memes you’ll know that they’ve accumulated the nicknames of curb stompers, (pretty sure this is also the name of a wrestling move) dinosaur stompers and quite frankly I think they’re ridiculous. How on earth Fila got their designs approved is beyond me, especially now they’ve released a neon collection and an extra chunky collection… yes you heard right.
Working in a shoe shop you gauge the type of people that are going to buy certain shoes. As soon as someone walks through the door you can tell whether they’re going to head towards the Vans old skools and know exactly what size they are because they’ve purchased them several times before and then you know who is going to ask you where your Skechers are. And then you know exactly who’s coming in for a good old pair of Fila. They tend to come in groups, known as the Fila squad. Normally in groups of 4 or more with at least one member of the squad already proudly flaunting their Fila dino stompers.
I wouldn’t even wear these to my own funeral, let alone to work where everyone can see. What are your thoughts on these bad boys?
