History of the the K-Swiss Baxter

Much of K-Swiss’ success is due to its dependence on its distinctly timeless, preppy shoe called the Classic, originally crafted as a performance tennis shoe. This style is kept in the brand’s catalog since it was brought out in 1966. In the more recent years, the K-Swiss Classic has been receiving modified reinterpretations, such as the off-court, street-appropriate K-Swiss Baxter.

K-Swiss Baxter History5  

The K-Swiss Classic was designed to meet the demands of intense tennis games through the use of supportive features while keeping its outer shell looking modest. The upper was built with three strong leather segments, held in place by five strips of leather on the lateral and medial sides.

K-Swiss Baxter History2

The sole seemed thin but structured with hard-wearing, lightly-treaded rubber which kept its entire weight down while functioning relatively frictionless.

K-Swiss Baxter History3

50 years since this shoe made its first appearance at the Wimbledon, K-Swiss still benefits from its ageless charm. From a performance heritage, K-Swiss heritage shoe continuously gets updated with materials and designs that make it appropriate off the court.
