"There's no bigger Ghostbusters fan than Nas."
Nas, who is apparently a big time "Ghostbusters" fan, has teamed up with FILA for a limited edition collection in honor of the new "Ghostbusters" film which hits theaters on July 15th.
” ‘Ghostbusters’ was a staple childhood movie for me, one my mother took me to see, and I still love watching today with my son,” Nas said in a statement today.
Each of the three FILA silhouettes featured in the collection, the FX-100, T-1 Mid, and the Original Fitness, were handpicked by Nas and are all constructed on similar colorways with "Ghostbusters" branding on the insole.
The high top FX-100, retailing for $100, is built on a creme suede upper, similar to the low top Original Fitness ($85). T-1 Mid ($90) flips the script with a black sueded upper with a glow in the dark midsole and outsole- in true Ghostbusters fashion.
“There’s no bigger ‘Ghostbusters’ fan than Nas. He grew up with the franchise, and along with these iconic partners, they’ve done a great job interpreting the characters and movies into these amazing, fashion-forward products,” said Mark Caplan, SVP of global consumer products for Sony Pictures Entertainment. “The collaboration was not only a natural fit between these brands, but an opportunity to add a modern, high-end twist to Ghostbusters.’ ”
Nas' "Ghostbusters" collection, releasing at select retailers on June 17th, will also include clothing and accessories from HSTRY, New Era, Monster, Italia Independent Eyewear and Tokyobike.
