Profile of the K-Swiss Aero Knit

K-Swiss Aero Knit is an attempt by the brand to create an out-of-the-box tennis trainer that isn’t short of performance benefits. It’s made with an aerodynamic upper with concealed laces that help boost its aesthetic appeal. Despite having a seamless fabric makeup and a non-traditional lacing closure, this footgear is devised with supportive elements for added protection. 

To enhance cushioning and energy return and help level up one’s game, K-Swiss integrated the Surge technology. Aero Knit is the lightest from K-Swiss’ arsenal of all-court shoes assembled to address the comfort and traction requirements of competitive and mid-level players.

Outsole

Durability. The entire base of the shoe is constructed with a non-marking Aosta 7.0. Such high-density proprietary rubber outsole is engineered to grant heel-to-toe strength. 

Aero Knit may not fall under the umbrella of trainers with an outsole durability warranty, but it comes with a wear-resistant DragGuard property fused into the high-wear zones. This spec prevents the treads from wearing out quickly. 

Grip. The traditional herringbone tread design is modified to keep up with the traction requirements of different court compositions. Its grip level isn’t too tacky that would hamper court movements.

Midsole

Energy return. K-Swiss incorporated the Surge+ midsole technology with shock spring to deliver the right level of responsiveness. This is necessary when the user readies up for the next step and darts towards shot after shot. 

Lightness. Complementing the Surge+ feature is the Surgelite cushioning proponent. As its name hints, this element is lightweight. It’s crafted to absorb impact and disperse it before the foot makes its next landing.

Upper

Material. K-Swiss utilized its patented Infi-Knit advanced weaving process in creating a lightweight outer membrane for the Aero Knit. This one-of-a-kind design is made of an assembly of fabric, mesh, and hidden laces. 

A bit of a downside of having this tightly knitted upper is the reduced amount of air that’s able to circulate inside the shoe. Nonetheless, it’s soft quality offers comfort.

Benefit. The foldable tab on the upper not only conceals the laces but protects them from getting ripped during repeated sliding.
