K-Swiss Heritage Light L History

K-Swiss is an American company founded in 1966 by two Swiss brothers who immigrated to the US. Both of them were skiing and tennis enthusiasts who discovered that some elements of the ski cleat can provide ample support when applied to court shoes which often had to handle aggressive side to side movements during play.

Their first shoes were named Court Classics which are also the world’s first all-leather sneakers for tennis-playing. This silhouette was quickly embraced by the tennis world and gained worldwide acclaim.

In 2014, the brand decided to update its brand identity by starting a collection of shoes designed for the modern world but with a distinct vintage look that harkens back to its tennis past. The K-Swiss Heritage Light L has got the heritage style down pat, but the comfort is a pure modern touch.
