History of the K-Swiss Classic LX

Established in 1966, two Swiss brothers named Art and Ernest Brunnerhad founded K-Swiss as a result of their obsession with tennis and skiing. It all started when they were looking for a pair of tennis shoes that are stylish, comfortable and durable enough for them to play in. Unsuccessful in their search, they saw the scarcity as a business opportunity and decided to start a company to compensate for the lack.

In the 90s, K-Swiss regained its presence in the market thanks to Steven Nichols who helped in the overhaul of the brand's marketing program. Their efforts were fruitful as the youth from urban backgrounds took notice and adopted the Classic. Today, the brand is targeting millennial entrepreneurs as their audience by offering amped-up versions of their classic designs.
