Editor’s Notes: FILA’s popular uber-chunky Disruptor has been turned into a sandal with a sole unit that is very similar to the original sneaker. A heavy tread on the forefoot transitions to a normal tread at the heel, with FILA’s traditional white, blue, and red color scheme on the upper. Although it’s a women’s style, guys have embraced the Disruptor too, spawning memes that play on the sneaker’s bulky look, especially when paired with skinny pants.
Dad sandals are having a bit of a moment, with brands such as Birkenstock and Teva enjoying a surge in popularity, not to mention popular styles by Suicoke and visvim. This Disruptor sandal, which you can check out in detail above, blends that trend with the bulky sneaker styles we’ve seen in recent years.
