Size and fit

The Fila Original Fitness casual shoes are offered in sizes 5 to 11 for women and 7 to 13 for men. This range includes half sizes for a more accurate fit. Although this shoe is advertised as true to size, reviewers noticed that it does not accommodate users with wide feet very well. 

Fortunately, it comes with a front lace-up closure. As a result, the fit can be conveniently customized according to the user’s preference.

Ladies can wear this low top sneaker with boyfriend pants, ripped jeans, bike shorts, and drape pants. While men, on the other hand, may go for the sporty look with a pair of jogger pants and a loose sweatshirt.

Notable Features

Featured on the upper of this low top sneaker is a breathable leather or suede material with embroidered Fila logo and flag branding. There are also reinforced paneling on the eyestays and heel for added durability. 

The midsole of the Fila Original Fitness kick is EVA cushioned in order to provide extra padding for shock absorption. Additionally, this shoe comes with a rubber outsole that offers superb traction and flexibility. 

Fila Original Fitness History

Released in 2016, the Original Fitness is one of the well-loved sneaker silhouettes from Fila. It boasts a retro construction that appeals to sneaker fans from several generations. 

Fila, as a brand, started in 1911 somewhere in Biella, Italy. Initially, it was a company that manufactures textiles for the people on the Italian Alps. Over the years, the brand has evolved into becoming a world leader in high-end sportswear.

In 1923, Fila entered into a partnership with Maglificio Biellese. This allowed the business to expand beyond the borders of Italy and introduce its products to the world. Despite its success in the 70s and 80s, it was only in the 90s when the brand has finally earned a spot in the US market.

Not only is it known for its sports apparel, but Fila is also famous for its footwear. The brand prides itself with both athletic and lifestyle shoes that are not only stylish but comfortable and durable as well. Aside from the Fila Original Fitness series, another fan-favorite collection is the Fila Disruptor
