Top ATP and WTA Athletes Weigh In on the New FILA Axilus Energized
FILA has taken a step forward in the tennis-shoe game with their brand-new Axilus Energized line. In a world full of tennis shoes that cost $140 or more, it’s nice to see a solid performance shoe at a cost-effective price point. These shoes are designed to be lighter than their predecessor (the Cage Delirium), and provide the responsiveness necessary to compete in high-stakes environments.
Axilus Energized Technologies and Features
This table describes the benefits that athletes can expect from FILA’s Axilus Energized tennis shoe.
|Technology / Feature||Description & Benefits|
|Energized Rubber®||Located in the forefoot and heel, this technology provides athletes with lightweight and responsive launching points.|
|Molded Forefoot Cage||This system provides durability and support, but not at the expense of mobility.|
|TPU Midfoot Stabilizer||Separating the forefoot from the heel, this fortified section ensures greater stabilization and comfort during quick cutting movements.|
|Molded Heel Cup||This feature enhances comfort and stability, and helps prevent your heel from sliding.|
|Breathable Quarter||To keep your feet from getting weighed down by sweat, this special mesh-like section of the shoe provides needed ventilation.|
|Molded Sockliner||This component of the shoe improves comfort, breathability, and overall fit.|
|Outsole Warranty||As of the time of this writing, the Axilus Energized features a six-month outsole warranty.|

Marin Čilić: My impression of the Axilus Energized is fantastic. The shoe is very light, has very good stability and support, but what I like most with this shoe is that as soon as I start to wear a new pair, they fit to my foot so comfortably that I can have straight away best performance from them.
John Isner: The Axilus Energized is THE best shoe I have ever worn. FILA really showcased their innovation with this incredible, lightweight shoe.
