Leave it to K-Swiss, a leader in high performance court shoes for over 50 years, to develop the first court sneakers officially marketed as pickleball shoes! Following on the heels of their number one selling Hypercourt Express, the K-Swiss Express Light Pickleball Sneakers feature many of the same technologies, but with a pared down weight due to a redesigned upper. The thought behind the lighter weight was to appeal to recreational players of both tennis and pickleball who want the generous fit and performance of the Hypercourt Express but don’t need the extended durability that comes from the heavier outsole and other materials.
Our take on the K-Swiss Express Light Pickleball Shoes:
We love the ExpresLight for it’s modern look with high tech materials for breathability and comfort right out-of-the-box.
Details of the K-Swiss Express Light Pickleball Shoes:
Designed to be a comfortable, lightweight, breathable shoe for pickleball players (YES, you bet it CAN be worn for tennis too!)
Features a pickleball logo on the shoe, tag and sockliner
Upper: Synthetic materials to provide comfort and breathability with support. “No Slip” heel grip lining around the heel holds heel back in shoe. Durawrap protection provides durability on the upper.
