Year: 1984

Back before Grant Hill and Jerry Stackhouse, FILA was an exotic brand that had that Ferrari-like Italian mystique. The T-1 tennis shoe became a b-boy staple, with that buttery beige leather. They weren't Guccis, but they were the next-best thing. Any retro of the T-1 should be held in the same high regard - and make the wearer feel like Big Daddy Kane in '88. These should be like leather jackets for your feet.
