Classic through and through!
These sneakers shine with a retro 90’s look. Real leather, coupled together with an interesting and classic basketball sneaker design creates a pretty appealing product. Coming in nine different color schemes, your choices are endless. There’s plain white with black tongue and sole, grey, and a pair of black variants. White, neon blue, and neon orange are my personal favorites since they capture that 90’s look and feel perfectly, not to mention that they definitely turn heads!

Customer Reviews and Scores:
Amazon currently has 75 reviews with a 4.7 out of 5 average. A pretty impressive score! The reviews are very positive with most customers happy. General problems encountered seem to be that they run small on the sizing (a common FILA issue), and that they lack some arch support. Both problems can be solved easily. As with most FILA sneakers, you should probably buy a pair that is a size bigger than your actual size. As for the arch support, this can be a positive for some folks, but if you need new insoles are typically better than factory insoles anyway.
In general, however, these are quality shoes that hold up well, provide plenty of stretching room for your feet, and offer support in some cases all for a very affordable price! The Fila 96’s are a must have pair of basketball sneakers.
