For the 125th anniversary of the Wimbledon Championships at the All England Club, Fila have released the Alpha 125 shoe. The new Wimbledon shoe has been designed to combine both comfort and performance.

Fila Alpha 125 tennis shoes

Built around an accommodating, yet performance-orientated last, the Alpha aims to provide great fit and feel from the very first wear. The synthetic leather upper is composed of ultra fine fibres that allow the foot to breathe in all conditions, whilst the Dri-Lex Climate Lining: to rapidly diffuse perspiration away from skin.

“125” is stitched towards the rear of the shoe and there is a special “125th Championships” logo on the tongue.

The Alfa is designed to last, using abrasion-resistant and moisture-managing materials to endure even the most aggressive play. The toe wrap is coated with a “liquid ceramic” material which lasts up to 8 times longer than traditional synthetics in high abrasion areas. This extends to the midfoot for added durability.

You can buy them online on Wimbledon official shop.
