From windswept dirt tracks, to perfectly manicured ski slopes and the table-top surfaces of a race track; the pursuit of adventure comes in all shapes and sizes.
The latest Duke + Dexter release celebrates the diversity behind that fact, collaborating with former F1 World Champion Jenson Button and dare-devil free skiing prodigy Jon Olsson to bring a emboldened sense of adventure to a wardrobe must have – the sneaker.
Skier, blogger, car-enthusiast, product designer; Jon Olsson lives his life to extremes. After racing in his early years, he eventually traded speed for spring at the age of 16 and switched to freestyle skiing. With nine X Games medals, more than ten film appearances and countless other freeski accolades under his belt, his sights are set on progressing the sport and enjoying the hell out of every step along the way.
Crafted in England, the new Duke + Dexter Hiker Low Sneaker is the epitome of what it means to be an adventurer on the go who pushes the limits; whether that’s after a day of rapidly descending snow draped mountain faces or racing through the desert with your foot firmly planted to the floor.
Built to last from Italian water-resistant suede, these sneakers feature internal leather padding for all day comfort, hiker inspired eyelets for quick, sturdy fastening and even a carabiner clip for safe and easy storage whilst on the move.
With the faces of Jon Olsson and Jenson Button behind the release of our latest style, we’re also pursuing our own adventure of raising awareness for men’s health, with 10% of all sales being donated to Orchid, a charity fighting testicular cancer, and Calm, a national charity aimed at supporting men’s health.
