There was a time when the generation gap was so wide that your Dad was most definitely from a different era. He wore a shirt and tie or at the very least, a sensible shoe. This is 2022 though, and many of the fathers of the world grew up in an era democratised by the internet. It’s Father’s Day soon and with this in mind we thought we’d put together our biggest product round-up ever. There should be something for everyone here, or at least everyone’s Dad. He might not carry off the KEEN Uneek sandals we’ve started with, but he will want to smell nice, or wear a reliable pair of socks. Scroll on to see more.
