History of the Fila Boveasorus

Fila was established by Fila brothers in 1911, in Italy, as a company that manufactures textiles for their local town, Biella. Through the years, the company evolved, expanded, and turned into a producer of high-end sportswear which it is today.

In 1923, Fila company partnered with Maglificio Biellese, which allowed the company to spread out beyond their small town and eventually outside the borders of Italy. Several years passed, and the company had undergone several partnerships and expansions, which ultimately transformed them into a global sportswear brand.

The company first aimed at producing sportswear for tennis, by endorsing a few star players, such as Bjorn Borg, Boris Becker, Jennifer Capriati, Monica Seles, and Kim Clijsters. However, the brand did not take off, as it was always behind the shadows of the more popular Nike and Reebok.

1994 was the year when Fila saw a better fortune in terms of their sales. The company signed a big endorsement deal with Grant Hill, an NBA star player, and Alberto Tomba, the winning skier of the World Cup 94. After dominating tennis sports, Fila established itself in other sports before the decade ended. The brand eventually took over other sports, such as basketball, soccer, baseball, and motorsport.

The Fall and Rise of Fila

When Fila experienced a collapse in the 2000s, in terms of sales and brand's popularity, the management decided to undergo several acquisitions and mergers to save the brand. The Holding di Partecipazioni, the original owner from Italy, sold the brand to Cerberus Capital Management in 2003 which operated the Fila around the world except in Korea.

In 2003, when Korea finally acquired Fila, the company developed high-end fashion products and established its headquarters in Milan. The brand worked its way to earn a spot in manufacturing designer sneakers and apparel. Since then, the brand has launched several silhouettes that were instantaneously tagged sold out in most of the stores. This event marked the return of Fila to the global fashion scene.

To keep up with the current trend of remodeling classic silhouettes into modern style, Fila has released several iterations from their past molded into the recent trend. One of them is the Fila Boveasorus, which was originally worn in 1999 running events and was adapted to fit the modern dad sneakers trend.
