Although FILA may be well known for their athletic products these days, when the company was first established 100 years ago, a large part of its business focused on mountaineering. British sneaker boutique Foot Patrol wanted to pay homage to its outdoor heritage by revamping the classic Trailblazer boots. Foot Patrol named the reincarnation Trailblazer AM, which stands for Apennine Mountains, a reference to the birthplace of FILA. Its exterior is dramatically enhanced by the addition of blown rudder outsoles with tan leather beading, while its uppers are constructed from nubuck leather materials. A subtle branding of the Foot Patrol logo is placed on the inner heel, signifying the collaboration. These boots are scheduled for release on Saturday, January 28th at Foot Patrol.
