FILA Men's Athletic Shoes

Put em the feet! Tie the laces! And rock out! Or walk out! Or sit down and be a guy sitting with a pair of shoes on! Or don't put them on! Leave them buy the door! For when you leave the house! That's what's crazy about these Fila shoes! They're so versatile!

Men's? Women's? Children's? The descriptions don't say, though the sizes make me think they are likely men's shoes.

When I search online I can only find the Finest Hour style (but not these colors) in women's and children's shoes. The Ultimate Lite style shows up in men's shoes.

Ya, I was really excited to pick up a pair but it doesnt mention mens or womens sizes. Also the one i wanted starts at a size 7 =/ If only you could throw me a size 6 1/2 bone here!

Sorry guys but I don't have an immediate answer. I'm contacting someone to see if we can get this clarified though.

UPDATE: Woke someone up. They are all MEN'S. I've updated the title to reflect this. Sorry for the confusion.

I would love to purchase the Fila Finest Hour Shoes - Black/Blue but I can't because the description does not say if it's men's or women's shoes. Hello we need to know can we please get an answer.

Ok, so now that we know they are men's shoes, does anybody want to share their experience with FILA? I'm really tempted, but I haven't had anything to do with the brand, and I'm not finding much in the way of reviews (and nothing at all for this style).

Any insight, good or bad, would be appreciated!

Does anyone know if these shoes fit true to size?

They do fit true to size. I always recommend buying athletic shoes a 1/2 size bigger, though, b/c your feet will "grow" if you do any type of pounding in them. Measure your foot before and after a 10K (or a 9 hour shift on a factory floor). But, as always, it's your choice.

They claim "standard" fit, which is meaningless to me. Anyone know what that means? Does that pertain to the width? If so, why not just list it? Are these narrow, wide, or crazy foot like a ray wide?

Since length is typically reported via shoe size, I'd have to assume they are neither narrow nor wide... just standard.

They run true to size which means if you wear a 9 in most shoes, you should be just fine with a 9 for these. They are standard fit (standard width).

I have been buying shoes for decades, and never heard of "standard" width.
A/B = narrow
C/D = medium (I think)
E = wide
EEE = insanely wide like a sting ray body.

If I wear an 11.5B in a Luchese hand-made boot, will these fit me?

The standard for a men's shoe width is D.

You have a narrow fit? Doubtful these would work for you. But, then again, every foot is different.

It would be difficult to compare a Lucchese cowboy boot fit to an athletic shoe fit. They're made on different lasts (forms). If you own athletic shoes, I'd start there for a better size comparison. Are your athletic shoes a standard or "D" width? If not, you may not want to roll the dice.

Nice boot choice by the way.

They are considered running shoes, but they are very light and have EVA exposure on the tread, so you couldn't put heavy road miles on them. I'd lean toward gym use.

I recently got a pair of very similar FILA shoes on discount. While I run with them, they lack padding and have poor enough flex that they're pretty awful on my feet and joints. Currently looking for an alternative.

My Fila Finest Hour arrived yesterday and I love them, they are super light and comfortable. I will be using them for the gym.

Got mine in, been wearing them. VERY breathable compared to a similar pair of Nike shoes I own...with as cold as the weather has been last few days, these are probably better to wear when you're exercising indoors or working up a good sweat. For just walking around, these shoes keep the feet pretty cool. In the warmer months, these are gonna be awesome.
