K-Swiss

Founded by two entrepreneurial Swiss brothers who moved to California in 1966 to create their own company, K-Swiss started manufacturing tennis shoes. After immigrating to America, the two brothers named their company “K-Swiss” in honor of their Swiss background. K-Swiss is the only heritage American tennis sneaker company. The company revolutionized the game of tennis with the original K-Swiss Classic, which was one of the first all leather sneakers. The Classic silhouette was so successful, it was the only shoe the company manufactured for the next 20 years. Originally a country club brand, today K-Swiss is enthusiastic about equipping and inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs.
