Hush Puppies Brings Back a Model That Pre-Dates the Chunky Trend

Introducing the Power Walker

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.
