Grandpa's Got Game! Everyone's Crushing On The New Hush Puppies Power Walker Collection!


In the shoe game, there has been a so-ugly-it’s-cute trend. Crocs became cool, and Dad sneakers are all the rage. Now the new Hush Puppies Power Walker Collection takes the geek chic sneaker trend to a new level, grandpa’s closet! We’re here for it not only because it’s cool, but also because they are so comfortable. Say hello to the rise of grandpa sneakers.

A little orthopedic, a little bit bulky, and now available in a range of cute colors for men and women, Hush Puppies is an iconic American brand that has been loved by the Rolling Stones, Princess Diana, David Bowie, Tupac and more.

Ken Beaulieu, VP Global Product for Hush Puppies, and formerly the Senior Director of Men’s Footwear at Timberland, says it best: “There are a lot of brands who find it difficult to remain true to what they stand for and chase trends.  Hush Puppies isn’t one of those brands.  We didn’t have to create a dad shoe as we’ve had ours before your dad was even a dad.  The Power Walker is an original and we’ve updated it with some new modern colors that Hush Puppies consumers young and old will love.”

Ken has partnered with some of the best streetwear brands in the business such as Supreme and Stussy along with iconic retailer such as Collette and Opening Ceremony. It’s a fun launch from an inclusive brand that’s winking at everyone with this collection. Plus, the shoes are affordable and under $100.

The sneakers come in a refreshing color palette. Two of the three styles are available in white, powder pink, pastel teal, cornflower blue, silver, taupe, and black. The third style is available white, taupe, and black. The colors are perfect for your summer in the Hamptons style. The KDHampotns crew will be sporting them in multiple colors! The Power Walkers Collection Available at
