Founded in the Italian Alps in 1911, Fila originally focused on manufacturing fine fabrics. The company eventually evolved into making fine undergarments, later the high-quality sportswear that attracted the attention of such world-famous athletes as Bjorn Borg, Tom Watson, Reinhold Messner and Alberto Tomba. Long associated with tennis, Fila Tennis is the brand of choice for up-and-coming tennis stars like Kim Clijsters, Thierry Ascione and Tatiana Perebiynis.
When you are building your on-court wardrobe, you should start from the ground up. After all, the shoes you choose can make or break your game. Fila Punto men’s tennis shoes come with a seven-month durability guarantee – as do all Fila athletic shoes - and are ideal for narrow feet. With a slim, glove-like fit, these shoes do not require any breaking in.
The upper of this tennis shoe offers breathability and a microfiber toe for improved durability for toe drag. The Punta offers both the Fila Super Action Impact system in the heel and a Superaction Response insert in the forefoot. These two technologies combine to give excellent cushioning that does not interfere with court feel.
The Fila anatomical performance footbed includes an anti-microbial element and provides outstanding support and comfort. The outsole features a full-length herringbone pattern that gives non-marking traction on hard courts and clay. Also, the outsole is designed to give a smooth heel-to-toe transition for a faster step.
The shoe most often favored by female touring pros, the Fila Torneo II Women's Shoe offers improved support and stability. It offers a contoured, supportive fit and excellent ventilation. As with other Fila shoes, you won’t need to break these in. The Torneo II has an external heel stabilizer to support the heel area, and it offers a lightweight microfiber and mesh upper. These shoes also feature an abrasion-resistant toe guard that covers the top of the toe area and also extends down the medial side to protect against toe drag.
The Fila Torneo has a full-length Superaction dynamic polymer midsole and a Superaction inset in the heel. This gives improved responsiveness and comfort. And if you are looking for stability and control, look no further – the Torneo II Women’s Shoe also boasts a deep herringbone pattern with an ad pivot point for hard-court traction. When it comes to apparel, Fila’s fine-materials heritage comes into play with items like the Kim Clijsters dress.
Designed for television, this dress is black and features the Fila logo prominently on the left chest and the right hem. It includes a built-in mesh bra and a back zipper. The stylish paneled detailing at the neck and chest, as well as the 24-inch length will make you look like a sleek champion no matter what your ability level may be.
Today’s male player is no less aware of his appearance on the court. Combine performance and style with the Fila Men’s Terra Rossa Vintage Borg Vest. This vest is part of a collection available in limited quantities, and is tailored to the exact fit of the original piece. For less fashion and more performance from Fila tennis apparel, take a look at the Men’s Summer Vantaggio Polo. Protect yourself from the sun with its UV-protective fabric. Lightweight and stylish, the Men’s Summer Vantaggio Polo also has a self-fabric collar, a side-vent hem and a reflective, screen-printed Fila logo on the chest.
