First Look K-Swiss '09: Grande Court

Posted on February 11, 2009 Under Fashion

You might be surprised to learn that K-Swiss has been around since 1966. I’d argue that the brand really started taking off in the 1990’s, when the clean striped sneakers were all the rage. Always a forward-looking brand, K-Swiss is really digging their heels in for their Fall 2009 season. More than 20 styles will be offered, falling under categories such as Premium Court and their more casual Sportstyle selection. The flagship model for the latter is the Grande Court, which I find fits the bill perfectly for anyone looking for a sneaker that is comfortable, yet can still pass for a party or a night on the town. The shoes, which are available in three colorways, are constructed of premium perforated leathers and sports the signature five stripes. They sport a low profile sole and micromesh on the inside for maximum comfort.
