Kinesio Endorsed by “King Felix”


Kinesio Holding Corporation is proud to announce that Seattle Mariners’ pitcher, Felix Hernandez, is the first North American professional athlete to be an official endorser of Kinesio® Tape in the company’s long history.

Hernandez will be the new face of Kinesio Tex Classic and Kinesio Pre-Cuts. Kinesio is a trusted, must-have brand for retailers looking for growth from a new and innovative product category and the endorsement from “King Felix” will assist in this endeavor.

Felix Hernandez made his Major League debut in 2005 and has been on the mound for the Mariners ever since. With five all-star appearances, Felix pitched the 23rd Perfect Game in Major League history against the Tampa Bay Rays on August 15, 2012. Most recently on May 10, 2015, Felix recorded his 2,000th strike-out and became the fourth youngest pitcher ever to complete this feat.
