Mixing sport with style isn’t just a trend, it’s a lifestyle. While several brands have stepped up to the challenge of merging technical function with fashionable styling, very few have a lineage like FILA. With a crop of classic kicks that are primed for the contemporary closet, FILA is sending out some heritage-infused heat just in time for the spring season.
There’s something to be said about the Italian label’s core silhouettes, such as the Original Fitness. Old school detailing meets timeless touches on today’s revamp of its ultimate classic; as one of the brand’s key styles for decades, this modern rework pairs buttery soft leather and premium lacing for an overall streamlined, feminine look. But even the best sneakers can get a boost from a fresh take, and FILA’s done just that for spring. With the Original Fitness Premium, FILA has taken the OG and applied new colorways in tonal, all-over pastels. Boasting blush pink, light blue, or a silvery gray, this suede retooling of the classic style is a surefire way to put a spring in your step in more ways than one. Overall, the Original Fitness is the ultimate sneaker for the defining fashion trend of the moment: the need for versatility while still making a style statement. From formal daywear to casual end-of-day sleekness or some weekend high-end fleekness, sneakers like FILA's Original Fitness add to every outfit.
Of course it wouldn’t be a proper FILA drop without a little heat from the brand’s retro aerobics wing, and the season’s F-13 isn’t one to disappoint. Featuring the classic red, white, and navy FILA colorway and flag branding, this throwback mid-top is finished off with the silhouette’s must-have ankle strap. While swaths of fast fashion stores try to borrow from sport brands' heritage, FILA has the kind of sport and style authenticity you can take all the way to the court (or better yet, your shoe rack).
Throwback fitness inspirations aside, it always pays to stock something on the cozy side, and you cannot beat FILA’s Drifter slides. Set on a cushy EVA footbed, these low-key slip-ons make a statement—be it through the bold FILA branding across the front, or a color roster that includes iterations in cream, black, white or (our personal favorite) pink.
Crossing the lines between style and sportswear isn’t necessarily new nowadays, but when it comes to a label like FILA, it’s practically in the brand’s DNA. With a strong roster of spring sneakers and slides, FILA isn’t just dropping street-ready heat, they’ve taken gems from its men’s sneaker vault and flipped them to meet the exacting standards of fashion-focused women. To cop a pair of clean low-cut classics, high key F-13 midtops, or simplified Drifter slides, head over to FILA throughout the spring season.
