Italian Heritage, Modern Style: Fila

The Fila legacy began in 1911 with the Fila brothers in Italy creating the Fila clothing company for the people of the Italian Alps. Now 105 years later, Fila has spread all over the world from Seoul, South Korea to New York City through dedication to providing premium sportswear for exceptional athletes. And Fila also has premium lifestyle sneakers for style-oriented individuals.

Fila first jumped into the sporting world with tennis athletes like Bjorn Borg, but spread to basketball as well with stars like Jerry Stackhouse. Their designs were known for being designed to mirror the movements of athletes, adhering to the form of the athelete without compromising freedom of movement.  

It hit gold in the late 80's and early 90's with designs that looked enough like American streetwear to appeal to those into fashion culture, yet had unique style cues and accents that gave it its own vibe. Fila popped off with it's street designs enough so to inspire anyone from The Beastie Boys to TLC to drop bars about 'em all while the great Grant Hill rocked 'em on court in the mid '90s.

Over the last century Fila has become synonymous with performance and style. Their products are worn by athletes the world over as well as by the fashion conscious. Their designs and materials radiate with fine craftsmanship, while providing maximum comfort and flexibility. Check out our selection of Fila, and cop some of its century old legacy.
