K•Swiss was founded in 1966 by two Swiss brothers, who moved to California to pursue their dream of starting their own footwear company. As avid skiers, they drew inspiration from leather ski boots to create the first all-leather tennis shoe.
This is how the K•Swiss Classic was born, and it remains one of the most iconic and classic sneakers of all-time.
It was the only model sold for two decades, and it has elevated our brand to numerous awards for excellence and success over our nearly 50 years in existence.
