AETHER has always impressed us with their impeccably-crafted, perfectly-appointed, and un-fuck-wit-able gear that seamlessly bridges the gap between motoring protection and modern style. Their latest release, the Dalton Sneaker, expounds on everything that made the likes of the Voyage Motorcycle Sunglasses, Crosby Jacket and Field Jacket great–aka quality construction, premium detailing, high-end materials and unheard of attention to detail–and packs all of that into a high-top sneaker crafted from durable Italian leather and lined in soft, Japanese leather. As they put it, “In a nod to our moto collection, the sneaker features D3O®—the global market leader in impact protection and shock absorption—at the ankles and under the insoles for serious long-term comfort when you’re on your feet. We use D3O® in our moto gear to protect you from the impact of the road, and now we are using it to protect your feet. D3O® uses unique patented and proprietary technologies to make rate-sensitive, soft, flexible materials with high shock-absorbing properties, and while it is often used in sporting goods or moto wear, it is far less common in an everyday shoe like a sneaker.” In other words, AETHER packed all the performance materials and detailing you’ve come to expect from the brand–that no one else cares about–into well-built, high-tech sneakers that are as stylish as they are durable.
