The Dalton Sneaker |in Press

We took comfort very seriously when we spent a year and a half perfecting our new Dalton sneaker. Need proof? We put D3O® (the same thing we use for impact protection in our moto gear) at the ankles and insoles to make sure you feel good no matter how long you’re on your feet. We crafted the sneaker from durable Italian leather and lined it in soft Japanese leather, and we padded the tongue and the top of the shoe. But don’t take our word for it—read what the press is saying about it. ↓

"In a nod to AETHER’s motorcycle collection, the stylish sneaker also features D3O® world-class impact protection, proprietary technologies, and shock-absorbing materials to protect your feet from the impact of the road."—Bless This Stuff

"The Dalton Sneaker features D3O®—innovative shock-absorbing technology used in AETHER's motorcycle gear, but far less common in sneakers—which ensures lasting, all-day comfort."—Forbes

"AETHER may be mostly known for its technical outerwear, but now it’s entering the sneaker market with a premium high-top named the Dalton." —HYPEBEAST

“What would happen if you used the same impact-protective materials used for motorcycle jackets and sandwiched it between Italian and Japanese leathers and made a sneaker out of it? The answer to this super generic question is AETHER’s first-ever sneaker.”—Gear Patrol

“The Dalton, on the outside, is a relatively unassuming high-top, save for the perforated leather and the raised circular detail at the ankle (Chuck who?). What's really interesting is the inclusion of D30, a patented, shock-absorbing material more commonly found in motorcycle gear than sneakers. The result: Shoes that'll keep your feet padded and comfy like no other.” —Esquire

Find out why Cool Hunting says the Dalton Sneakers "pair timelessness with innovation, making them ideal for everyday wear. "

"Aside from the Dalton’s impeccable construction, comfortable orientation, and clean lines, the shoe stays admittedly true to AETHER’s utilitarian formula."—HiConsumption

“AETHER has always impressed us with their impeccably-crafted, perfectly-appointed, and un-fuck-wit-able gear that seamlessly bridges the gap between motoring protection and modern style."—Cool Material

“AETHER packed all the performance materials and detailing you’ve come to expect from the brand–that no one else cares about–into well-built, high-tech sneakers that are as stylish as they are durable.”—Cool Material

“AETHER just unveiled its first-ever sneaker, which deploys a special polyurethane energy-absorbing material usually reserved for motorsports but rarely—if ever—seen in sneakers.”—Airows
