Fila is a long-standing, global brand that manufactures a wide variety of sportswear for men, women, and kids. Its rich and colorful history dates as far back as a hundred years ago. It was first established in 1911 in Biella, Italy.
The brand started as a textile and underwear manufacturing company, which later expanded to making high-end sportswear. In 1972, Fila reached more than a billion Lire in sales with a workforce of over 250 people. It has successfully penetrated the sportswear industry, thanks to its endorsements with leading athletes at that time.
By the end of the 90s, Fila established itself as a reputable brand not only in the tennis arena but in other sports as well. These include basketball, football, baseball, and motorsport. However, the 2000s proved to be a shaky season for the brand as it began to decline in sales and brand awareness.
All these changed when Fila Korean acquired the global Fila along with all its international subsidiaries. The brand started making designer sneakers and collaborated with famous names in the industry. This marked the comeback of Fila to the global sportswear and fashion scenes.
The Fila Luminance is one of the famous dad shoes that were recently released by the brand along with the Disruptor series.
