Fall Preview: Hey Dude

Hey Dude may have its roots in Italy, but the brand is inspired by the comfortable, laidback California lifestyle. The collection’s surfer vibe is reflected in a series of men’s classic casuals for fall that include modern takes on boat shoes, high-top sneakers and wingtips. Built around a proprietary Flex & Fold technology, the shoes follow the foot’s natural movements for enhanced comfort and weigh in at 4 1/2 to 6 ounces a shoe. Distributed through Lever Your Business of Los Angeles, the line retails from $45 to $100. A companion women’s collection retails for $40 to $95. Hey Dude is available at Shoebacca.com, Parke & Ronen in New York and Sebastian’s Closet in Dallas.
