Very poor quality and low durability - hugely disappointing.
on 27 October 2014
These shoes have been a major disappointment. I have been buying K Swiss for years because I have always found them to be comfortable and durable. I bought this pair 3 months ago and have played on average 1 to 2 times per week. Very quickly the outside restraining cleat came away from the shoe (the stitching simply parted) but that is not insurmountable as the lace can be threaded through the hole in the top of the shoe. This week, however, the seam has parted between the top of the rubber sole and the main part of the shoe leaving a neat 1.5 inch split along the outside surface of the shoe. I can only assume that K Swiss have changed their manufacturing set up and utilised a much poorer (and presumably cheaper) producer. After almost 20 pairs of K Swiss tennis shoes I will now be looking for a different brand.
UPDATED to add that I have just used another new pair of these shoes which I bought over a year ago and had been saving for a tournament. On the second day after no more than 3 matches the right shoe split along one edge and now has a gaping hole. UTTERLY RUBBISH - cheaply made from presumably defective materials - DO NOT BUY THESE EVER.
