Seven teams, 306 starts, 15 wins and 1 world championship later, Jenson Button is a Formula 1 legend. He’s gone on to be Japanese Super GT champion, compete in the Ironman Triathlon, and even founded his own race team in California – debuting in the infamously gruelling Baja 1000 race through the Mexican desert.

It’s Button’s pioneering spirit that led British shoemaker Duke + Dexter to choose him to be the face for its latest In Pursuit Of Adventure campaign.

Duke + Dexter itself is a pioneering brand. When the company launched back in 2014, it was attempting something fairly revolutionary at the time – to make the slip-on loafer cool again.

It certainly succeeded. The watershed moment was when Eddie Redmayne wore a pair to collect his Oscar for The Theory of Everything.

Since then the list of celebrity clientele has been long and distinguished: Ryan Reynolds, Justin Timberlake, Tinie Tempah, Snoop Dogg, DJ Khaled, and David Beckham to name but a few.

Last year, the brand diversified to include more casual options – including its more sporty D+D Racing line.
