Here’s the thing: You don’t need to love exploring the outdoors to love clothes meant for exploring the outdoors. Fila knows that. That’s why in the brand’s latest launch, Explore, the clothes meant for climbing, hiking, and all-around adventuring look cool enough to wear on anyone’s version of adventure. Like, to the grocery store. Hey, whatever floats.
Mountain and outdoor gear has been a big part of Fila’s schtick, but so has its penchant for sport- and streetwear. This collection is a happy marrying of those things. There are shoes and shorts and anoraks for days. There are also fanny packs. Of course there are fanny packs. And the clothes are built for function. You can be sure they’ll withstand sweat, harsh wear, and your lack of showering.
And in true Fila fashion, the whole thing just feels nostalgic. There’s bold coloring—notably, royal blue and pops of red and yellow—and nylon fabric. What were the ’90s for if not colorful nylon windbreakers? Whether you want to take the Explore line up a mountain or just outside for a walk is up to you. The whole thing will be available to shop starting July 26, but we have a sneak peek at what’s to come. Take a look.
