Designed for: City In the last year, AETHER has made its way into the world of footwear, first with the AETHER Moto Boot and then with the Dolomite Boot, a collaboration with century-old Italian shoemaker Fracap. And now, we introduce the men's Dalton Sneaker, a high-top crafted from durable Italian leather and lined in soft, Japanese leather. However, this is not your everyday sneaker. 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. Infusing all of that shock-absorbing technology into your feet ensures this will be the most comfortable sneaker you own. Further making comfort our top priority, the shoe features padding at the opening of the shoe as well as on the tongue. The Dalton is constructed with several thoughtful details, from custom bicolour soles in natural rubber and a webbing reinforced back tab to accent-colour eyelets at the top of the shoe. Each of the AETHER high top's three colourways features a different accent colour. The side-wall stitching on the Dalton ensures it will stand the test of time and wear. If you are in-between sizes, we recommend sizing up.
