FILA Spaghetti – Return of the Stack

words // Brandon Richard

For the 1995-1996 NBA season, FILA laced up highly touted Philadelphia 76ers rookie Jerry Stackhouse in his first signature shoe, the FILA Stackhouse.

Due to Stackhouse’s explosive style of play, FILA aimed to create a shoe that was lightweight, but extremely supportive at the same time. Released in mid and low cuts, the Stackhouse featured multi-layered support straps throughout the upper and a wrap-around mudguard that gave Jerry the support he needed to throw down a plethora of highlight reel dunks.

Jerry started 71 games for the 76ers in his rookie season, averaging 19.2 points, 3.7 points, 3.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks per game. With these numbers, he was named an NBA First Team All Rookie. Stackhouse spent a little more than two seasons with Philly before a 1997 multi-player trade sent him to Detroit.

By 2007, Stackhouse was a 12-year veteran and a key role player for the Dallas Mavericks. With the demand for FILA classics still present, the brand brought back the Stackhouse in retro form, but with an all-new name — The Spaghetti. The name was inspired by the unique layered strap look of the shoe’s upper.

Now, here we are six years later. Stackhouse is now 38 and still making NBA rosters. He currently suits up for the Brooklyn Nets, who are locked in a playoff matchup with the Chicago Bulls. Celebrating Jerry’s 18 seasons in the league, FILA has reissued the Spaghetti once again. The filabuck and nubuck upper and long-lasting rubber outsole are just as you remember. The best part — Jerry is wearing the model in games, eighteen years after he for the first time in Philadelphia.

If you’d like to add this 90s throwback look to your sneaker rotation, you can pick up the Spaghetti and other casual FILA shoes here today.
