K-Swiss has been building up a rep as the Original Tennis Shoe for decades now, but it looks like they’re expanding into the ping-pong market. At the end of this month, they’ll be kicking off a new table tennis trainer with the help of the quirk purveyors at New York’s Partners & Spade.

If you want to pick them up, you’ll have to drop by the store on August 29th, when there’ll be a rousing ping-pong tourney afoot and the sneakers in question will be going for an inspiring $80 a pair. After that, you can find them in New York’s J. Crew Men’s Shop and L.A.’s Conveyor, or just settle for the clay-court version.
