Swiss brothers, Ernest and Art Brunner established K-Swiss in 1966. The brothers exchanged their home in the Alps for the Californian Southern shores. A search for the durable, comfortable, and stylish pair of tennis shoes after being bitten by a tennis bug led the brothers nowhere. But that was what made them realize their opportunity and develop a tennis specific shoe of their own.
The first tennis shoe that was all-leather, the K-Swiss Classic was also released in 1966. The silhouette then immediately acquired global popularity. It also gained the image of being a style statement not just on the court but all off-court. The second style from K-Swiss was then introduced in the year 1986, the Gstaad.
Also in 1986, Steven Nichols purchased K-Swiss, as he perceived the capability of the “country club” footwear brand. By 1990, the brand released its high-top version of the K-Swiss Classic.
