As we stated yesterday in our 8 Fila Sneakers That Should Return feature, the Fila Mash was a turning point shoe for the company thanks to a bold moving in signing Jamal Mashburn to a lucrative sneaker deal before he was even drafted. The shoe came in a high cut that was all white leather and featured neoprene detailing in the heel and tongue, in this case in traditional Mav’s blue and teal. Other examples included a black suede version with gold accents and a black and purple variant. Check out some detailed photos of a vintage pair of the shoe, and note the old-school box which featured an early example of Mashburn’s own logo.
