Men’s Heritage, Women’s Acqua Sole Collections and the Axilus 2 Energized
FILA Global – FILA will debut two colorful collections on court in Indian Wells. The men’s Heritage and women’s Acqua Sole collections, which feature modern twists on classic FILA tennis styles, will be worn by FILA sponsored athletes such as Marin Cilic, Karolina Pliskova, Ashleigh Barty, Kiki Bertens and Diego Schwartzman. These collections, along with new colorways of FILA’s top performance tennis shoe, the Axilus 2 Energized, will be unveiled at the BNP Paribas Open.
Men’s Heritage Collection
FILA’s Heritage collection is truly timeless, featuring the brand’s classic red, white and navy infused with a bright green and blue. Texture-effect stripes and tone-on-tone pairings serve up a handsome combination of mesh and pique while FILA’s signature stripe tape enhances criss-crossing crewnecks, jackets and tees. This fabric found in this collection offers 50+ UV protection as well as moisture wicking, breathable and anti-odor properties.
Women’s Acqua Sole Collection
FILA’s Acqua Sole collection features bold seaside hues, abstract geometric print and mesh panels. The collection boasts halter-inspired lines and curved seams, making it feminine and flattering. Collection standouts include princess-seamed dresses, a sleeveless polo and a selection of tanks. The collection’s moisture wicking, breathable fabric coupled with the 50+ UV protection insures the wearer’s comfort.
Axilus 2 Energized
The newest colorways of the Axilus 2 Energized, FILA’s popular performance tennis shoe, were designed specially to match the vibrant on court style of Heritage and Acqua Sole. Male FILA sponsored tennis athletes will wear the bright green/surf the web/FILA navy colorway while female athletes will wear the electric blue lemonade/FILA navy/white style.
The lightweight, flexible shoe offers a perfect blend of style, comfort and performance. Designed for a sport that continues to evolve, these stylish shoes will carry athletes across the court quickly and comfortably without sacrificing stability.
