Could These Be The Most Comfortable Dress Shoes Ever?

In Partnership with Hush Puppies

Australia’s favourite name in men’s comfort shoes, Hush Puppies continues to lead the market by way of new innovations and designs alike. At the heart of their legendary performance is brilliant Bounce technology, which has been influencing other brands for well over a decade. Rather than rest on their hard-earned laurels (or should we say soles?) the footwear kings keep outpacing the competition. That brings us to their latest and greatest evolution to date, better known as the new Bounce PLUS collection. Packed with premium materials and technical features, these dress shoes deliver ridiculous levels of comfort and look downright spectacular in the process.

Updating all of the core classics that their customers know and love, the Hush Puppies Bounce PLUS collection includes more technology and performance specs than ever before. It also introduces a sleeker silhouette whilst retaining the brand’s signature width and comfort, thereby delivering the best of two worlds. Slip these babies on and you’ll be feeling like a boss and looking as good as you feel, as you take to the office or the club or anywhere in between. Or as the brand itself likes to put it, the new range allows you to make “boss moves in the best shoes.”

What looks like an uber-stylish pair of dress shoes is so much more than that when you break down the many layers and technologies. Features include the following:

  • Superior leather uppers are smooth to the touch and resistant to both water and stains.
  • BioDewix Dry with Nzym breathable lining controls moisture and prevents odours.
  • Bounce removable footbeds with soft mesh sock lining enable dual fitting and allow room to fit your own orthotics.
  • Fibreglass torsion stabilisers are airport-friendly and good for enhanced stability and support.
  • Lightweight midsoles deliver superior comfort with no foot fatigue.
  • Bounce outsoles cultivate prime shock absorption and energy return.

In addition to updating core classics, the Hush Puppies Bounce PLUS range introduces three new stunning silhouettes: Nero, Norris, and Eddie. Bolstered by premium materials, eco-friendly lining, and the brand’s latest technology, each pair makes for an instant triumph. You’ll pick up all kinds of boss vibes just by looking at these bad boys and that’s before you’ve experienced their glorious comfort and performance. Here’s a closer look:

Speaking of “boss moves,” this signature silhouette takes its name from a legendary Roman emperor. Raised at the heel and effortlessly wearable, it comes fully loaded with all the Bounce PLUS features we mentioned above. Choose between black, brown, and tan.

When only the most iconic footwear will suffice, look no further than this Chelsea-style boot, aka The History of the Nike Air Presto. Every bit as smooth as it appears, it’ll turn heads across a host of terrains. Like the Nero, it comes available in black, brown, or tan.
