Hudson X Dashing Tweeds

Hudson X Dashing Tweeds


Hudson shoes combine the best in British style with Italian craftsmanship. Combining the best of British fabric innovation with contemporary shoe design and East End nouse, Shoreditch based footwear brand, Hudson, has collaborated with Stoke Newington situation Dashing Tweeds to produce a limited edition range of classic brogues and chukka boots.

The Hudson brand was founded in London in 1990 by entrepreneurs who had noticed a gap in the market for men’s accessories and were already working in partnership with an Italian production facility. With access to the finest leather and the most refined and traditional techniques, Hudson’s creators aimed to offer a unique product at a reasonable price. British style provided the rest, and in 2002, Hudson’s collaboration with the famous British singer Paul Weller led to it being named Best Men’s Footwear Brand by Maxim magazine.

Dashing Tweeds is Britain’s latest tweed textile and men’s wear company. Using all the best British mills and workshops to create a truly original British brand. The company was founded by photographer Guy Hills and Woven Textile Designer Kirsty McDougall, who share a dedication to challenging the menswear market with elegance, colour, heritage, technology, innovation and humour, developing fabrics and garments that will last a life time.

Hudson has tapped even further into the British heritage trend with these amazing tweed mix shoes. Now you don’t often see tweeds featured in footwear, least of all the best of the Scottish – Harris Tweed. So this is a real treat for the eyes and toes. Hudson has teamed up with Dashing Tweeds to bring us a limited edition range of classic desert boots and brogues.
