The ‘Dad-Star’ features an iconic design from the ’90s, combining a vintage silhouette with innovative materials for a versatile and on-trend look.

The shoe arrives in two colorways – silver and gold. The laminated leather and ballistic nylon with contrasting reflective inserts give it a unique look.
