Adding to its established sneaker offerings for guys, Fila has launched a women’s footwear range for S/S 2009. Inspired by LA, the "Melrose Collection" offers an uninhibited mix of materials and neon-based colors. In terms of shape, all the sneakers within the line feature hi-tops and draw on the classic Fila F-13 model, but with an added dose of femininity and lightness in place.
