In my tennis days, I cursed those kids with better grades (and USTA rankings) that were gifted with free shoes and garments from K-Swiss. Thoughts relating to the brand go back to this experience, though the tables might turn. K-Swiss wants to dominate ping-pong. In aid of this effort, they’ve teamed with Partners & Spade to produce a special shoe for the latter’s “August Sweatout Ping-Pong Classic.” The event takes place on August 29, and the shoes (a special make up of the classic K-Swiss with a touch of neon) will also go on sale at a few fine retailers.
