K-Swiss Free Running Sneaks: Fashion Meets Function

If you’re never heard of parkour or free running, you’ve probably at least seen it before.

What was once an underground physical activity has clearly made it to the mainstream, confirmed by the launch of K-Swiss’ new line of sneakers especially made for this urban gymnast’s sport. (The stuntman behind the Bond chase scene, by the way, is Sébastian Foucan, K-Swiss’ official spokesperson for the line.)
