K-Swiss Vintage California Collection

在球鞋業界內復刻以往最經典的鞋款已經是不是什麼新鮮的事,而當中復刻以外更把它們加上復古、殘舊效果更是最受歡迎的。除了大家一向常見的那幾個品牌外,今天我們要介紹的就是另一歷史頗長的 K-Swiss。

Kick it old school – back to the year of 1966, specifically – this summer with K-Swiss’s assortment of Vintage Californias. The California Sports Company is channeling their roots by launching the prototype that was responsible for their famed Classic.

若你對球鞋的歷史,特別是香港的有大約15-20年年資,應該會記得當年 K-Swiss 的鞋款 Classics 曾經風霏一時,而當年的售價更是比其他品牌的偏高,可是依然是鎖售理想更有些顏色是變成炒賣的目標,可算是球鞋界其中一對較早就有炒賣價值的款式。而十多年後,這雙曾於美國加州紅極一時的網球鞋款也變成了 K-Swiss 的經典款式,而他們曾把這鞋款再發展加入新科技,可是當他們於早一兩年再次推出原版的款式時,反應卻是十分好,而經此後,他們就正式把復古、殘舊的效果加進鞋內推出,名為 Vintage California 系列。
此系列分別有高筒和低筒的鞋種,共有五色為白、藍、綠、黑、啡,物料也用回當年款式常用的帆布,此外他們於鞋底增加了輕微的黃色,使其帶有著用過後殘舊變黃的感覺。

Before the brand’s founders perfected their all-leather tennis shoe (The Classic), they played with various canvas and textile materials, resulting in the Vintage California. Now, for the first time in 20 years, experience the assortment of high- and low-tops as a perfect choice for any of your summertime escapades…each shoe is a little piece of K-Swiss history!
