Ease of entry is emphasized on the K-Swiss Dani sneaker using blush-tone extended heel tabs partnered with plush heel-counters for a cleatie-like fit. A molded-rubber midsole provides ample cushioning and impact protection. Women can go grab a pair of sizes available from 5 to 11. For those who are wondering its width, the K-Swiss brand constructed this sneaker in a standard B medium.

Low top sneakers for women like the K-Swiss Dani can be best showcased with shorts or capris to accentuate its court style. Like many tennis-inspired kicks, this also flaunts a minimalist design. Tonal laces complete the homogenous hue of the upper complete with feminine details on the overlays. The slightly pointy toe front adds to its sleek low profile appeal which generally goes well with almost everything.

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.

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 cleats, 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.

  • The padded collar and the lining consist of a textile material which adds to the comfortable feel.
  • The insole is composed of a molded EVA compound.
  • Other colorways of the K-Swiss Dani are comprised of textile uppers with perforations instead of a full-leather material.
