Overlays on the K-Swiss Dani shoe display zigzag cuts on the edges giving the shoe a more feminine touch. This pattern is also observed on the tongue which also contains a pull tab as well as on the heel. The molded-rubber midsole, whether its white or gum rubber, includes small geometric designs covering the perimeter of the shoe.
K-Swiss Dani History
The passion for tennis did not stop our two protagonists to achieve their dreams of creating world-class sportswear for the court game. Art and Earnest Brunner are two Swiss men who are fanatics of tennis and at the same time are avid skiers. Their move to California spawned one of the footwear breakthroughs that the world has witnessed which revolves around the concept of non-advertising.
Combining the silhouette of a standard tennis shoe with the Gilly-lacing system of ski boots, the duo created a revolutionary tennis shoe that is both durable for doing swift antics and supportive. Manufacturing a model with plush cushioning and a firm upper entitled the K-Swiss brand to be one of the top-notch sneakers when it comes to the sport. This first model was called the Classic and was introduced in Wimbledon the same year.
The K-Swiss monicker was coined based on the ubiquitous fad of local European kids which mistook the "C" for a "K" in California. They fused the K into their hometown and viola, the K-Swiss brand was born. Since then, the company stayed relevant in the game of tennis which had first witnessed the birth of an all leather court shoe courtesy of K-Swiss.
By staying true to its original design, K-Swiss had already introduced many tennis-inspired sneakers exhibiting great performance attributes in a striking five-stripe image. Without stowing away that much from the classic low top form, the K-Swiss Dani inducts itself as a women's sneaker with a tennis look. Subtle feminine touches surround the sneaker's upper which is made convenient by the generous heel pull tab and a well-cushioned heel counter.
