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.

As always, leave your thoughts on the FILA Venom in the comments.
