Story Behind Tupac’s Iconic Image Wearing FILA as Told by Grant Hill

If Celebrity Sneaker Stalker was a thing in the ’90s, Tupac would be featured in it weekly. Out of all of the late Rapper’s sneaker moments in his career, the clear stand out is the image wearing the FILA Grant Hill 96. It landed inside the booklet for All Eyez On Me, Hip Hop’s first double-disc album.

Tupac wearing Grant Hill’s signature shoe was equally as dope as the album itself. This happened at a time where footwear brands weren’t steadily seeding Rappers with the hottest sneakers, so it has always been a mystery as to how Shakur ended up wearing them. That is until now…

In a recent interview with MLIVE, the man himself Grant Hill opened up about the events leading up to the iconic photo:

Now, with Tupac we actually had a mutual friend and when he got out, just sending love, I sent some (shoes) not even sure if it would happen. Then when he had them on in his album cover, I thought that was cool. It was just a good time

It took two decades for these details to surface and it only adds to the iconic moment. Grant Hill and Tupac will forever be recognized in the sneaker culture for the image. Salute to Mr. Shakur, he sure does know nice kicks.

BAIT x FILA 96 “The Next Chapter”


Removing the branding from the classic FILA 96, this collaborative lifestyle rendition from BAIT celebrates Grant Hill’s life after basketball. Officially titled the BAIT x FILA 96 “The Next Chapter”, the subtle yet smooth composition from the Los Angeles shop is inspired by the 7-time All-Star’s retirement and new television career. Constructed with a rich nubuck upper in dark grey and black, leather detailing also mixes in throughout the shoe, which is finished off with luxurious red contrast on the inner lining and outsole. Subbing in a perforated patch where the FILA branding is normally seen, as well as leaving the tongue blank, the only branding comes on the rubber toe cap and BAIT stamps on the velcro heel straps. Tell us what you think of these brand-less FILA 96s in the feedback space below, and take the BAIT when these release July 26th.
