So you’ve been playing in the KSwiss Ultrascendor for years. And you love everything about this shoe because it never lets you down! It offers step in comfort as well as all the stability and security to allow your feet to feel confident every time you take a step on the court. Who wouldn’t love that winning combination?
But lately, when you have gone to re-order your tried and true Ultrascendors, it hasn’t been there or it’s out of stock…but why?! Sadly, it is the end of an era. And as sad as you are to see it go, we are also mourning the loss of the Ultrascendor here at Tennis Warehouse.

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.
KSwiss maintains its reputation based on quality products loved by tennis players around the world. And it doesn’t hurt that two of the best doubles teams in the history of our sport have spent their tenure playing under the KSwiss brand. Between the Woodies and the Bryan Brothers, KSwiss has provided shoes for more than a handful of Grand Slam titles. With the Bryan Brothers winning their 100th title this year, who better than to represent this American Heritage Tennis brand?! This California court brand isn’t stopping there and promises to continue to provide us tennis players with high performing shoes.
Can you tell me what is better than watching world class tennis players play tennis with each other and with celebrities to raise money for a good cause? Nothing! Ok, well they are some things but this is pretty high up there. Now I normally spend most days at the BNP Paribas Open but was able to sneak away to watch the K-Swiss Desert Smash held at the stunning La Quinta Resort (a short distance from the tournament) which raises money for the charity, Variety.
The day started out with a pro am tournament in the morning which then led to the exhibition matches featuring pros like Jack Sock, Sam Querrey, Fernando Verdasco, Bryan Brothers, Mardy Fish and Novak Djokovic. The event was packed with people sitting around the stadium court watching some fun filled tennis.
