FILA Grant Hill II

Everyone knows the history of Tobacco Road and the basketball rivalry. Duke. UNC. During the 1990s, FILA was right in the middle of it, signing Tar Heel and Blue Devil standouts Jerry Stackhouse and Grant Hill to massive sneaker deals before either one had ever played in the NBA. The two spectacular NBA swingmen became the faces of the brand and this fall, they’ll be returning once again in a special “Tobacco Road” sneaker pack.

The limited release “Tobacco Road” pack will be available on October 3 on FILA.com and to select retailers. The Spaghetti, worn by Stack during his rookie season and seen below, is flipped in the North Carolina blue color combination. Then there’s the 96, also remembered as the Grant Hill II because he wore it during his second season, which features Duke blue suede.

To top it off, both shoes will arrive in customized packaging that’ll reflect their college colors and location. For now, stay tuned to Dime for more details as they emerge.

    Shows how much mom dukes was not pulling out cash for hoop sneakers. I had one pair that I had to use for hoops and everyday wear. If those wore out tuff luck. I had to wait until my bday or xmas till she would cop a new pair. Guess thats why when I got old enough to have my own money I went sneaker crazy…lol

    Those Grant Hills actually look like they are closer to Carolina Blue.

    The shoes perfect to wear in this winter. Also would be a best fit with jeans and pants.
