FILA Launches Women's Footwear Styles Exclusive to Barneys New York

(FILA North America) - FILA has linked with Barneys New York to launch a covetable, limited-edition selection of women's silhouettes that provide the perfect blend of style + sport. The featured footwear designs embrace elements from iconic FILA styles, while luxe textures and tones offer a fashion-forward update exclusively for the Barneys New York shopper.

The FILA XO Barneys New York collaboration includes FILA’s Disruptor II Lux and Drifter slides, elevating a street-ready style and a classic design with sophisticated touches. Each silhouette is available in two colorways. The Disruptor II Lux was designed in peach blush, a timely and on-trend shade, as well as classic white. The low-top design is styled with a smooth leather base, a lightweight EVA midsole and a chunky rubber sole, with branded detailing throughout. FILA's signature logo appears on the shoe's tongue, quarter, midsole, and back counter, while FILA XO Barneys New York branding decorates the footbed. To further highlight this exclusive style, a silver "X” embroidered pull tab is featured on the left shoe, with an “O” embroidered pull tab on the right shoe.  

The FILA Drifter slides are boldly emblazoned with the FILA linear logo across a specially designed terry strap and the Barneys New York logo featured on the side of the strap. The Drifter is made of soft premium leather with rolled edges on the toe box and back heel. It sits on a comfortable EVA footbed and is offered in white with a navy strap, as well as an all-over blushing bride hue.

The Disruptor II Lux retails for $120 and the Drifter retails for $75. The footwear styles are currently available in select Barneys New York stores and at www.barneys.com. The FILA XO Barneys New York women's offerings will expand throughout the Fall/Winter 2017 season.
