“K-Swiss worked closely with McLaren in order to customise shoes that met all of the specific needs; and just like that, Tubes shoes became the official 2023 team footwear for all McLaren Racing mechanics, engineers, and VIP staffing,” explained K-Swiss in its press release.

All three of the models come with McLaren’s trademark papaya colour. The heritage Classic VN is white leather with papaya accents. The Tube Sport comes in black transitioning to silver with an orange sole (pictured above) and orange sole with black mid-sole transitioning to papaya.
