Extending its presence as an American tennis heritage brand, K-Swiss balances style and technical performance with the ST429. Bridging the past to the contemporary, the silhouette pulls inspiration from both its predecessors and the colorful bright lights that illuminate the Californian nights.
Crafted as a pastiche of its archival offerings, the model combines the bottom of the ST329 with the upper of the Endorsement. The use of neon hues of yellow, blue and coral alludes to the west coast’s nocturnal skies, and with the implementation of ombre shading, the profile is given a bold characteristic. With stability, cushioning and durability in mind, the ST platform leverages technicality alongside the Shock Spring midsole and full-length premium EVA footbed and strobel board. Mesh provides breathability while the eye-catching crystal gradient rubber outsole adds tread durability. And with a nod to its heritage, the signature five-stripes motif completes the kicks.
Priced at $85 USD, find the shoes at K-Swiss’ website, Foot Locker, and Shoe Palace, as well as select retailers in China.
