K-Swiss is proud to partner with musician, actor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist YG for an exclusive launch of the Classic LX sneaker at Foot Locker. To launch the partnership, K-Swiss and YG have created the Compton Country Club campaign, paying homage to K-Swiss’ history as a heritage tennis brand, while updating the club members with a new generation of cultural leaders. Featured alongside YG are the promising ensemble of rising stars Day Sulan, d3szn, Mitch and Tay2xs from his 4Hunnid label. Centered around the shared LA home of both YG and the K-Swiss brand, the campaign was produced by Baron Davis’ production company, SLiC Studios, with YG as the Creative Director.
The partnership between K-Swiss and YG starts with the relaunch of the iconic Classic LX, dropping exclusively at select Foot Locker, Foot Action and Champs stores, and will include more exclusive and YG-designed sneaker launches throughout 2021.
“While the idea of the country club is old fashioned, the idea of being smart, wealthy and elite is still very much alive,” says K-Swiss President Barney Waters. “The people who embody this now are today’s entrepreneurial youth, taking matters into their own hands and creating their own success. This is the modern concept of a country club but done our way and open to everyone.”
At the center of the campaign and the partnership is the K-Swiss Classic LX, bearing the recognizable K-Swiss Classic trademarks of the signature 5-stripe design, 3-piece toe and D-rings, with 55 years of authentic heritage as an icon of sneaker design.
“K-Swiss is part of the LA culture,” says YG. “If you grew up in the city and were born in the 80’s and 90’s, you know about K-Swiss. It’s a staple of the culture”.
The Classic LX is available at Foot Locker as of April 6th with the marketing campaign debuting on the same day. For the most up-to-date information, follow @kswiss on Instagram.
