Editor’s Notes: In 2017, FILA’s own chunky shoe, the Disruptor, was the affordable answer to sneakers such as the Balenciaga Triple S and Raf Simons Ozweego Bunny II, thrusting the brand back into footwear relevancy.

This year, FILA is bringing back the Venom, a silhouette that first released in 1994 and is named after its viperfang vamp intercrossing. The silhouette will first drop in two colorways, the red/white/black and green/white/navy iterations you can see above.

Still chunky but slightly less so than the Disruptor, the FILA Venom is a streamlined silhouette sitting atop a deep flexation-grooved sole and which, with its shape and style, could end up seeing a lot of success in 2018.

The Venom is accompanied with a small, three-piece capsule collection in white. FILA Navy, and shady glade color: the Keith Half Zip top, the Shane Tee, and the Carlos Shorts.

Peep the lookbook up top and then flip through the product shots above for a better look at the sneaker.

Drops May 25 at selected stores including 24 Kilates, Titolo, Footpatrol, Asphaltgold, and Naked, among others.
