The Hyper-Ballad, inspired by the Björk song of the same name, is a signature design of DANO. Taking the classic mule and transforming it with a contrast of geometric lines and curvature, the Hyper-Ballad is a love letter to both modernity and tradition.
This version of the DANO Hyper-Ballad features another signature of the brand, the Raindrop heel. The Raindrop heel offers more stability and coverage for everyone, regardless of foot shape or size.
The Hyper-Ballad 2 is constructed using traditional leatherwork techniques. Every Raindrop heel is made of slabs of vegetable tanned cowhide cut, shaped, finished and polished by hand for 8-10 hours to produce a true stacked heel.
The hand-cut vegetable tanned cowhide sole features a hand-stitched welt all around the shoe that makes the Hyper-Ballad 2 withstand any movement and any situation for many years. Hand-welting also means less contact cement to secure the upper to the sole; this allows us to replace the sole, should your shoe ever require so, many years from now.

Note: Because leather is a natural material, shades, grain and texture may vary from the sample in the photos. This is an inherent feature of natural leather that makes it unique and should not be considered a defect.
