K-Swiss ST329: From a classic tennis favorite to a trendy lifestyle kick

Initially launched in the 90s, K-Swiss revived the classic tennis footwear ST329 as a chunky lifestyle sneaker. It got its ticket to popularity for its lightness despite its heavy and bulky profile. This model is covered with leather upper seated on top of a chunky sole. To provide ventilation and comfort, it is lined with mesh material and added with a cushy insole.

One variation of this model is the K-Swiss ST329 CMF. This revamped version looks virtually the same as its predecessor but uses a soft and cushy memory foam on its insole to provide enhanced comfort to its wearers. 

K-Swiss ST329 vs other K-Swiss ST models

K-Swiss ST429. This limited-edition model is a mash-up of the old and new. The brand combined the ST sole of the ST329 and the upper of Endorsement sneaker, another performance tennis footwear from the 90s. It features color-blocking details with several overlays, creating an authentic throwback look.

K-Swiss ST529. Taking the majority of its features from its prototype, this sneaker is another fashionable chunky kick in the K-Swiss ST lineup. However, unlike the ST329, this model's all-leather upper has decorative stitching and a midfoot overlay for added style and support.
