About Us

The History

Just a bambino in the footwear world, spawned in to existence in the noughties. Hey Dude’s ethos to provide comfortable, lightweight and durable footwear for all, by redefining the principals of footwear construction. The principals have not changed from the original concept, using carefully chosen materials with the combination of the patented EVA sole has allowed Hey Dude to continue to innovate and stimulate the footwear industry. It will make you keep coming back for more... a bit like your favourite vice; but hey, comfort is addictive.. you try getting us off the sofa on a Sunday!

What we are about

Whether it’s chilling out at the weekend, post sport recovery or smart/casual options for work Dude shoes have got you covered. Regardless of the style or use, Hey Dude shoes keep the principals the same, with the patented EVA sole and a durable memory foam leather insole to create a shoe that is made to mould to the shape of your foot. No better feeling than slipping on a comfortable pair of shoes. Hey Dude loves the outdoors and advocates protecting the environment we live in, the footwear recycling scheme is testament to their desires to embrace and sustain the al-fresco lifestyle.

How do we do it?

Back to basics; Dude wiped the slate clean and took all the classic styles you have ever loved, took them apart and ditched all the metal and hard stiff parts that can make shoes inherently hard to wear. (Yes there are metal parts in shoes..)

Then they redesign and reconstruct them using Dude's patented sole technology and innovative design combined with lightweight and hard wearing materials to produce the funkiest, comfiest shoes straight out of the box.

The Promise

How you choose to live your life is up to you, we’re not here to judge… no really! However, looking after your well-being should be a priority.. Hey none of us are getting any younger. Simple life choices can make a huge difference; we would love to say slipping on a pair of Hey Dude shoes will make you live longer; it has not yet been proven despite a large donation to medical science. One thing Hey Dude can guarantee they will help you to enjoy the journey of life in unrivalled comfort. Hey Dude shoes will continue to provide really light and really comfortable shoes that feel totally different to anything you have worn before (Yes it’s all down to the patented sole! In case you missed it). Take the challenge you will not know how you lived without these functional funky comfy shoes. They’re good for your sole! (Sorry not sorry!)
