Are K Swiss shoes still cool?
These tennis shoes are still in style and no one can deny that K swiss shoes are very cool. Moreover, they’re both functional and comfortable.
Not anymore. The tennis-friendly brand has aligned with K-Powers (HBO’s Kenny Powers of Eastbound and Down fame) for a new marketing campaign that makes K-Swiss finally cooler than K-Loggins. The only downside is that the new shoe is called Tubes, which is about as ‘street’ as Space Food Sticks, Tang and Menudo.
Continuing its ballsy Kenny Powers campaign that started with a Funny or Die video last year, K-Swiss has now promoted Kenny to CEO of the company.
Much like their past collaborations, these new sneakers are entirely Made In The U.S.A. in Batavia, NY, by P.W. … Minor — America’s second oldest shoe and boot manufacturer.
