As CLSC owner Joshua Vides points out, “FILA is one of the first brands of shoes I owned. If you could afford the all-white Original Tennis you were the man.” So, it should come as no surprise that Vides chose the clean kicks for the SoCal streetwear spot’s first-ever footwear collaboration. The results include two different takes on the low-top. While one comes with an all-over red suede upper and icy rubber outsole, the other exists as a nod to Vides’ twelve-year-old self and couples a blue canvas upper with a white rubber toe cap. Says Vides:

I made the red suede with the icy sole for myself now, and the blue canvas with the white toe cap that a 12-year-old me would want. See, our shoes would get torn apart at the toe cause we “tried” to skateboard. By adding the rubber toe, the shoe’s longevity is prolonged and, in my honest opinion, I had to do something with the Original Tennis that has never been done before.

Though the red pair is currently sold out on CLSC’s web store, the blue version can be picked up online now for $90 USD per pair.
