K-Swiss was founded in 1966 by two Swiss brothers who were well known international skiers. After moving to California, the brothers became fanatic tennis players and developed the K-Swiss ‘Classic’, the first successful American leather tennis shoe. Their experience with skiing equipment is suggested in some now purely visual elements like the characteristic 5 stripes and the D-rings. The ‘Classic’ has remained unchanged and as a real classic is still available next to the broad range of styles K-Swiss offers today.
