The K-Swiss trainer is a re-launch of the white leather shoe that debuted at Wimbledon in 1966. Tennis player Anna Kournikova and actor Ed Westwick are featured on the K-Space website, developed by agency Perfect Fools.

Visitors to K-Space select from a menu of names or scroll through a reel. Each star is supported by their video and a portfolio of still photography.

The site will launch in the UK, US, Netherlands, Italy and German and is supported by TV, print and PR.

The stars are filmed wearing the shoe, expressing themselves through their personal passions, while talking about their individual style and reasons for loving the Classic Remastered.

Anna Kournikova is filmed on a photo shoot engulfed by tennis balls; Ju$t Another Rich Kid dances in a rainshower of gold; while Ed Westwick plays keepie up with a football before re-enacting his on-stage performance as lead singer of UK indie rockers, The Filthy Youth.

K-Space links directly to the 2009 K-Swiss collection so visitors can purchase online.  Other features include downloadable photos and content sharing through social media.
