The New York-based apparel label KROST (most recognized for its humanitarian initiatives) is back to support another charitable cause — but this time, they decided to join forces with a collaborator just right for them. Teaming up with the popular sportswear label FILA for the release of their newest footwear silhouette, the Renno sneaker, the innovative streetwear band came forward with a unique design that combines nods from FILA’s running and performance history with present-day streetwear designs, maintaining the sharp clean aesthetic inherent to KROST.

“Collaborating with such an iconic brand to produce a never-before-seen silhouette was an incredible milestone for KROST and a significant personal achievement for me," the brand's founder and creative director Samuel Krost shared. "I grew up seeing my grandfather wear the iconic FILA tracksuits everywhere he went.”

Designed in shades of navy, white and gray, the KROST x FILA Renno is crafted primarily in recycled leather mixed with other materials, such as nylon, suede, and ripstop mesh. The fashion-forward collab is highlighted in a unique campaign developed by Samuel Krost himself, featuring activists that work to resolve various social issues from organizations such as Food Bank for New York, BK Community Fridges, March For Our Lives, The National Alliance on Mental Illness, Stomp Out Bullying, Encourage Kids Foundation, Freedom March NYC, The Descendants, as well as advocates committed to the LGBTQ+ Empowerment Movement.  “The goal of the KROST campaign is to highlight the impact of various youth-leaders and bring attention to their causes," Krost added."By shedding light on these important initiatives, we hope to encourage this generation to get involved and create similar change.”

To further push this message, the collaboration will support each organization by donating 10% of KROST x FILA Renno sale proceeds to support their respective causes. A mission-driven brand, KROST believes that the progressiveness and success of our society can only be achieved through the unconditional support of our friends.
