Hey Dude began in 2008 in Florence, Italy when Alessandro Rosano began to make shoes that looked like modern footwear but felt more like comfortable slippers. One man’s passion and commitment has provided the foundation for today’s success. The Hey Dude brand was born in the Tuscan region of Italy, a unique part of the world known for its artistic, historic, and cultural heritage but also for its natural beauty, creativity, and craftsmanship. It is also famous for the established traditions used today in modern shoe making.
Today, we are a small international team producing footwear that is as much about fashion as it is about lifestyle, a philosophy that translates into every pair of shoes that we make - the most comfortable and lightest shoes in the world! Today, Hey Dude shoes are sold and distributed in 26 countries around the world - in the finest fashion, active sports, comfort, and lifestyle retailers.
Hey Dude continues to push the envelope on every seasonal category of the casual shoe market while maintaining its core values of being the lightest, most comfortable shoes on the market. We sell great looking shoes, for men and women from laid back
distressed summer styles, to super light oxford dress styles.
Hey Dude shoes make living easier step-by-step, whatever the environment. They will change your attitude to life: in play, at work, and recovery after sport. Take it easy and defy convention with the funkiest, comfiest shoes straight out of the box!
