    Anyone else really 'wowed' by what K-Swiss has been putting out recently? The new Fall Group looks great. In short, I love the designs, they've really 'upped' their marketing (I'm a huge fan of the 'Have An Awesome Day' commercial), and exposure is second-to-none with American tennis on tour right now (four out of the six most popular American players wear it: Mike Bryan, Bob Bryan, Mardy Fish, Sam Querrey--Isner and Roddick being the two who don't). But, most importantly, the quality of material used in their apparel is quite high, which makes for an extremely comfortable wear. Two thumbs up!

    I really really enjoyed their new marketing and the commercial is great. I actually went on you tube earlier just to watch the commercial. its feel good marketing and feel good colors too.

    Yeah, I agree it's obviously not original, but IMO, it's much, much nicer--more clean cut, and the colors seem to work better together.

    The shirt the Bryan Bros had on was epic...too bad its a such an extreme rip off of Adidias.

    I love that crew but the design theft is far too blatant to support.

    Of course they also robbed the blue rafa board short design and plopped Monfils in them.

    I hear you, and don't necessarily disagree, but if I'm playing a match with that shirt and the board shorts you mentioned, do you think I'm going to receive more 'sweet outfit' compliments or 'bro, I can't believe you would support a company that clearly steals designs from a market giant' quips?

    The mania, hahha don't worry I'm always out. Yesterday I played tennis, lifted,
    Road biked and ran :p

    I just thought it was a feel good advert that was filmed well. Relax bro :)

    Before you run away from home, Bro, you might want a dose of the real Cali lifestyle - 9% state income tax (to pay for all the liberal feel good projects and Union vote buying); overcrowding; still overpriced real estate (unless a 60 mile commute is your thing). If someone doesn't offer you a > $100k salary, you might want to stay where you are.

    One nice shirt (with dubious originality) doesn't do it for me.

    I honestly wish i knew what you guys were talking about but I don't live in the states. :/

    All i did was say I enjoyed the advert (the way the players were filmed, e.g. the atmosphere when the bryan brothers did the the advert).

    The ads are great. They've done a great job with those.

    The ads are great, but are the shoes any good? I am not buying just because they "look cool"

    Heheh. I saw the one on ESPN Magazine and thought it was pretty funny.

    I like the new K-Swiss gear as well. It's the first time in my 20 years of tennis that I've considered buying K-Swiss clothing.

    Seriously? The guy mentions he likes the line and the commercials, and you respond with the economic "state" of California.

    The new K-Swiss line is not half bad- would have to feel the material of the polo's to make final decision.

    K-Swiss is the Gulbis of tennis gear.

    Its pretty damn good, but ultimately sucks.

    A recycled adidas Edge design from two or three years ago - just like the shirt Djokovic wore at the US Open in maybe 2007. Big deal. As is always the case with companies like K-Swiss, their designs are just variations on what adidas and Nike do. Nice, perhaps, but nothing terribly interesting.

    He is far and away the top man for the job. He is second to none in the world of athletics, and a heckuva salesman.

    its great that Monfils was able to get away from his Nike themed line to dress so differently with K-Swiss as well

    Plaid shorts are not new. And a light blue/white color combination is nothing new either. But I loled at your comment.

    Finally a decent looking pair of shoes as well!

    Now, I wonder how they perform :)

    They do have a 6-month outsole guarantee. Anyone know how K-Swiss outsole guarantees work? Anyone have experience collecting on a warranty claim?
