Does anybody have any experience or comments about Fila apparel or footwear? Considering a purchase online (apparel right now), but no idea about the quality of this brand. Never seen it in any shops either. How does it compare with major brands like Nike, Adidas, Reebok, etc?

^^^Thanks mate. But is it comparable to the major brands as mentioned? Not talking about the styles/designs etc., as I can see that from pics. Am asking about quality, stitching, etc…. stuff that you can’t make out in pics.

FILA is a reputable brand ( but not well known in India ) and so quality should be ok. Personally , I will put them under Reebok and Nike and at par with Adidas and Puma ( may be just slightly lower to them as well )

More can be found here :

I have never personally tried the quality of FILA as I never felt them as value for money in comparison to it’s competitors.

^^^Thanks a lot. Will go thru that link. Fila’s prices seem to be at par with the bigger brands mentioned, so if quality is any lesser than those brands, it’ll turn out to be a bad buy for me.

So you are placing quality of Reebok and NIke above that of Adidas and Puma?? eek Does that comment come after actually checking out and using many of their products? Anyway, thanks again for your inputs. smile

Not a single actual user has commented. Seems nobody has used Fila stuff here? Strange… sad

There prices are similar with other better brands and that is 1 main reason which kept me away from them.

My personal experience for Shoes and Clothes with Reebok/Nike are much better than Adidas/Puma. Actually not only my personal but also of many I know. Actually what I feel is that Reebok and Nike are more consistent with the quality and maintains a certain min standard for even cheapest of there products while Puma/Adidas doesn’t and also have lesser quality products at a cheaper price range.Though not had a chance to check many in quality of Adidas and Puma over the last 10 years as better past experience with Reebok and Nike which made me stick with those brands over it’s competitors. Few months back purchased some Puma products from yebhi out of which few turned out to be bad in quality. Never ever experienced bad quality Nike or Reebok stuff in my life smile
Anyway , all 4 mentioned brands have different range and variety of products at different price range and value for money wise , I feel they all are ok.

Thanks again for those useful comments. smile

As for Puma I have a similar feeling. However, since it was purchased from Yebhi, I wonder if its Yebhi that is stocking lesser quality stuff. If thats the case, then its bad for Puma, as it lowers the brand image in customer’s mind. However, to be fair, I must add that for the price I paid, I shouldn’t grumble too much. But yes, doubts about the brand took seed in my mind.

What is interesting is that I wrote to Puma telling them what I thought (I didn’t tell then where I had purchased it at that point) and they promptly replied asking for photocopy of the invoice with pictures. After I sent that, there was absolute silence from them even thought I did send a reminder too. Something sounds fishy, eh?

Going back to the topic – no comments from anybody else about Fila…. either good or bad. Seems nobody is familiar with the brand. Got the same blank response from friends…

most welcome mate smile

For all I know , yebhi doesn’t sell duplicate stuff. But bad quality made me wonder if those were seconds stuff liquidated by Puma at incredibly low prices. If this was the case , it was a mistake on Puma’s part as well because they knew goods will come into the market and spoil there image. With yebhi , it was not only Puma but I faced similar problems also with Giardano and lots of Lotto products. They were surely quality of the seconds.

Please do update if any reply from Puma smile

Right, I can’t say for sure if its genuine or not (at least from the 2 products I’v bought)… it probably is, but more like seconds stuff. Actually, nothing wrong with selling seconds as long as they are labelled as seconds. But if they are seconds and if customers are enticed into buying by believing that its normal non-seconds stuff, then that of course amounts to cheating.

I had written to Puma more than 2 months ago. Once they got to know it was from Yebhi, they have maintained a stony silence. Not even a reply, despite 1 reminder. Its highly unlikely they will reply now. And that shows them in worse light. I may think twice before purchasing Puma (from anywhere) now.
