at the root of the brand for nearly a century.
“Fila is a brand with longevity and the name is synonymous with quality,” said Fila Golf principal designer Nancy Robitaille. “In
customizing the line to benefit golfers, we've remained true to its legacy by focusing on flattering fits and unique color
stories while advancing the design with twists on classic looks to form the core of any wardrobe.”

offers compelling stories, and we're excited to put our PR muscle
behind Fila Golf,” says Rich Katz, Managing Director of Buffalo.

exceed the needs of those who pursue athletic lifestyles.”
