Differences between Fila disruptor and Fila ray shoes

Differences between Fila disruptor and Fila ray shoes

Are you a fan of Fila? Fila Korea has a huge collection of beautiful Fila shoes. Out of them, Fila disruptor 2 series may be their most popular and well loved platform shoes. But some of the Fila shoes look so similar at first glance that it is hard to know the difference between them. Let us look at some of Fila platform shoes designs and do a comparison today!


1. Fila disruptor 2 shoes

The Fila disruptor 2 series is by far the most iconic and popular out of the Fila platform shoes series. They come in the basic colors and also the tapey tape version.

Fila disruptor shoes was part of the Fila sneakers collection first released in 1998. As part of the Fila heritage line, the Fila disruptor 2 shoes retained its simple and classic design. It also helps to bring out the iconic red blue Fila logo on the shoes.
Also, the raised platform sole creates a slimmer and taller look of the wearer. That’s why it’s so well loved! The tapey tape series is a variation pattern of the disruptor 2 shoes. Their difference is the extra Fila tape that goes around the shoes.

2. Fila ray shoes

Fila ray looks very similar to the Fila disruptor 2 shoes series and it is easy to get confused between them! They have similar designs and have elevated soles. But, the Fila ray shoes can be said to be a subtler, more subtle type of platform sneakers. How so? The Fila disruptor 2 shoes have a jagged design at the front part of its sole. In contrast, the soles of the Fila ray shoes is a gentle slope with no edges. Secondly, the side design of the Fila ray shoes feature a curve, giving the shoes a overall gentler vibe than the Fila disruptor 2 shoes

3. Fila ray tracer shoes

Fila ray tracer differs from Fila ray shoes in that it is slightly edgier and funkier. Look at the sole - more edges. Look at the design - more colors used, and also the incorporation of suede material, which gives off a sophisticated vibe against the edgy sole. Sometimes, Fila changes the usual white shoelaces to black white stripes for the Fila ray platform sneakers series. This adds to the funky vibe it already exudes.

There is also another Fila shoe that is an extension of the Fila ray sneakers collection. It is called the Fila ray tracer TR. TR is the abbreviation for trail, and it indicates a more outdoorsy and edgier design. The sole is a replication of a trail. It certainly makes a bold statement.

P.S. Do note that the cutting of the Fila platform shoes run small. We recommend you to get 1-2 sizes larger than your usual sneakers size for the best fit! For the best fit, follow the jp size indicated on the size tag of your sneakers (and add 5-10mm).
Hope that this has cleared the confusion of the difference between Fila disruptor 2, Fila ray and Fila ray tracer shoes.
