We are the Legends of badminton. True dat! As you all know, Kawasaki Footwear was initially created for the badminton courts. The iconic suede reinforcement on the toe would protect players from breaking out of their shoe tips when pounding towards the net. It then went on to be the preferred shoe for roofers in the early 80’s (roofer: a person who constructs and/ or repairs roofs), since the grippy non-slip sole was ideal to keep worker’s feet thoroughly planted on the inclining roof tops.
