Tennis players and non-tennis players alike will likely recognize the classic court shoes KSwiss has produced since the ’60s. Founded in Los Angeles in 1966 by two brothers living the American dream, KSwiss came about from the inspiration of leather ski boots to create the first all-leather tennis shoe. Since, the 5 stripes and leather comfort have become the signature trait for the brand. Evolving over the years, KSwiss continues to produce some of the most comfortable shoes on the market while still competing to be produce the highest quality performance tennis shoe.

You look at your watch. “Uh oh, that can’t be the time,” you think to yourself, “I’m going to be late!” What happens next is a blur. You rush around the house like a wild-woman trying to change out of your everyday clothes and into a cute outfit for the tennis courts. With a busy schedule comes barely enough time to squeeze in some tennis for the day, let alone time to get ready for the hit.
