Trends tend to be fickle, but rather than bending to the will of the culture, Hush Puppies looked to its own archive for making a modish “dad” shoe. The label has tapped into its catalog of over 60 years of design to revive the Power Walker.
Worn by health-conscious geriatrics and adorned by sardonic art school kids, the label’s reissue brings back its tried-and-trusted construction to a new generation. Bulky features that have excited the footwear zeitgeist are present in a duo of restraint options; wearers can choose either velcro or laced. The imprint extends a modern touch by adding colors to the sneakers, so old and new fans can style their ensembles with a variety of hues.
The Power Walker is available today for $99.95 USD on Hush Puppies’ website.
