Located in Westlake Village, CA, K-Swiss is a publicly traded company founded forty years ago by two Swiss brothers. The brothers, avid tennis players, introduced the first all-leather tennis sneaker, the K-Swiss "Classic" in 1966, filling a void in the market. The firm currently makes tennis, running, training, lifestyle footwear and apparel.
