With an iconic design that’s held court across eras and generations, the Classic VN Heritage is an accessible entry into timeless court style. A descendent of the legendary Classic, K-Swiss’ first tennis shoe that started it all, this low top sneaker features a full leather upper with signature elements like a three-piece toe construction, stitched 5 Stripes, D-ring lace-up and classic K-Swiss shield branding for a throwback look.
Founded more than 40 years ago in Van Nuys, California, K-Swiss introduced the first all-leather tennis shoe, the K-Swiss Classic, in 1966. Since its inception, K-Swiss has rooted itself in California Sport with an aim to be the most inspiring and innovative athletic brand in the market. Today, the company offers performance and lifestyle footwear and apparel for several categories under its California Sports umbrella including Tennis Heritage, California Fit (Running, Triathlon and Fitness) and California Youth.
Based on conflicting comments in reviews, I verified directly with K-Swiss company (via email to K-Swiss customer service) that the name in shoe tongue of “Kayswiss” is a legitimate trademark belonging to them as some countries will not allow marketing of “K-Swiss” brand as it alludes to actually being of Swiss origin (which K-Swiss shoes are not). Shoes are legit, well made and fit perfectly.
Good quality, definitely leather, but foot bed is hard & you'd have 2 break them in, not much arch support. I'd recommend these 4 a younger person. I've gotten 2 old 2 break in a hard solid leather shoe with no arch support & a hard foot bed. Not room in foot bed 2 add a Dr. Schols pad.
