    In 2001 the company went bankrupt, then it was bought from someone. A huge number of the US stores, if not all of them, closed over last year. More recently, a friend from Europe wrote me that: "I rarely saw Fila (they didn't even have a booth at Roland Garros)."

    Is the company planning on shutting down in the near future?

    I guess the test will be to see if they endorse the US Open like they did last year...

    I certainly hope not, I think they have some great product and I just sent back a warranty shoe for replacement and got a new pair in about two weeks
