K-Swiss Donovan History

The K-Swiss story began in 1966 when two brothers moved from Switzerland to California, USA. Despite being avid fans of skiing, Art and Ernie Brunner fell in love with tennis after migrating to the States. As a result, they decided to create a shoe that uses the functionality of leather ski cleats while providing aggressive lateral support for tennis. Thus, K-Swiss Classic sneakers were born and made a debut at the Wimbledon tournament. 

Several years later, this US-based company started making shoes for other categories, such as walking, hiking, and running. Today, K-Swiss is owned by Eland World of South Korea. They have launched a lot of shoe lines, including the K-Swiss Donovan. This versatile sneaker has the old school vibe of the classic K-Swiss but with a modern twist.
