FILA Partners With Shoe City for the Second Edition of the “Puzzle Piece”

Last year, FILA and Shoe City partnered together for the first edition of the “Puzzle Piece.” The style selected for the collaboration shoe was The Cage, a retro streetball silhouette. The pair was draped with a lush “Light It Up Blue” tonal suede upper and a multi-colored puzzle piece lining, along with an embroidered puzzle piece logo on the tongue. A portion of every purchase was donated to Autism Speaks to help raise awareness, fund research and change the future for those who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. According to the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), one in every 88 children are diagnosed with Autism in the United States. 

Almost one year to date, FILA and Shoe City return for the second edition in the “Puzzle Piece” series. In 2017, the FILA F-13 silhouette is selected. Dressed in a mostly white tumbled leather upper, the classic F-13 features the FILA-flag in the “Light It Up Blue” color, as well as suede overlays along the eye-row, and strap.  Much like the first edition of the series, the sock liner, back tongue and footbed are dressed in a multi-colored puzzle piece print to tie back to the Autism Awareness official symbol and messaging. Additionally, that same print is displayed on the shoe laces.

The collaboration shoe drops this Thursday, April 20th, on YCMC.com and in select Shoe City doors. For every purchase made, Shoe City will donate $10 to Autism Speaks.

SCAD FASH presents "Shoes: Pleasure and Pain"

Some shoes are made for walking and others, for display. Form was over function most certainly at this exhibit. 

SCAD FASH presents "Shoes: Pleasure and Pain," an exhibition organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, that explores the creativity, cultural significance and transformative power of shoes. The exhibition displays more than 200 pairs of shoes, from ancient Egyptian slippers embellished with gold leaf and the seductive signature red soles of Christian Louboutin heels, to cutting-edge designs created by contemporary designers experimenting with new materials and the latest technology. SCAD FASH is honored to be the only southeastern venue for the exhibition.

In addition to the extraordinary range of historic footwear, "Shoes: Pleasure and Pain" features platform boots worn by Elton John, Princess Diana's shoe lasts, and David Beckham's soccer cleats. Styles by numerous celebrated designers and labels such as Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Nike and Vivienne Westwood, as well as two iconic pairs of shoes from film history — the famous red ballet slippers from the film "The Red Shoes" (1948) and the Swarovski crystal slippers featured in Disney's "Cinderella" (2015) — are also included.

"Shoes: Pleasure and Pain" is curated around five themes: "Transformation," "Status," "Seduction," "Creation" and "Obsession." Designers' sketches, shoemaking materials and historic fashion illustrations provide a deeper understanding of the exhibition's themes. Debuting with the exhibition is "Touching the Sole," a special interactive tactile display that enables visually impaired visitors to engage with replicas of many of the shoes displayed.
