FILA Brazil Introduces New Cross Training Line

(FILA Brazil) The brand's new collection of cross training products joins high performance with technology, modernity, and FILA's famous signature style.

FILA Brazil is proud to announce the release of an exclusive line developed for the practice of cross training and functional wear. The collection, dubbed FXT Cross Training, is comprised of both footwear and apparel pieces, and brings a new « lifestyle » approach to the Brazilian sportswear market. In true FILA fashion, the new line merges elements of work, play, and physical exercise into one cohesive collection that is both stylish and functional. 

Each piece in the FXT Cross Training line was developed with careful consideration of functionality, technology, versatility, and fashion. "The FXT line was developed after a long period of research and market analysis, culminating in a line that exhibits the direction, style, and high performance needed for the practice of cross training", said Henrique Hermes, Marketing Manager for FILA Brazil. When it came to footwear design, five main elements were taken into consideration: traction - each shoe features an evergrip technology comprised by lighter, more adherent rubber; support - more anatomical shape in the heel area; stability - construction and larger form in the forefoot area; cushioning - energized technology in the inner sole for impact absorption; and lightness - leathers with less construction and lighter material. The featured models of this collection are the FXT Energized Full Panther, and the FXT Energized Full. "It is worth highlighting that all FXT sneakers were created and developed in the Dass Creation Center (DCC), in Ivoti-RS, one of the most technological research and shoes creation centers in the world, the largest in Latin America", Hermes remarks.

A total of 24 footwear pieces will be available, made up of 6 different styles in an array of colors. Clothing pieces follow a more neutral color palette, instead focusing on a technological direction that values both body and emotional composure, solidity, and stability.

The FXT line can be found in Brazil's main sports equipment stores, beginning June 27th. The collection is also available online at http://www.fila.com.br/especial-cross-training.
