Hide & Jack

a contemporary and playful reinterpretation of minimal lines sneakers, entirely handmade in Italy.

Hide & Jack is a young, Italian shoe company.


In spite of its name, Hide&Jack is a 100% Italian brand whose story began in 2014 by the two brothers Alberto and Nicola Franceschi, inspired by R. L. Stevenson’s novel “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde”.

Leitmotiv of Hide&Jack collections is a contemporary and playful reinterpretation of the concept of dualism to emphasize that each pair of shoes can hide a double personality.

Sneakers with minimal lines, show their stronger side through the colored mix of soles and uppers.

Quality, accuracy, refinement, attention and care in the manufacturing process result from the handcrafted pattern of most companies that have made big brands which chose shoe factories of the Brenta River for the production of footwear of the most exclusive brands. The same model can be presented in 208 different color combinations.

The main difference of the brand is a chic color palette, as well as the use of fittings, consisting of 40% pure gold.

Hide & Jack produces several main shoe lines: Hyde offers models with individual, bright and colorful designs. Volcanic is made from premium, vulcanized rubber. Bounce offers minimalistic models for active sports. Biker, on the other hand, includes a collection inspired by expensive cars and racing.

Their collections have been appreciated by leading publications and young influencers: Vogue Italia and Alessandra Ambrosio, GQ and Patrick Schwarzenegger, as well as motor racing champion Jorge Lorenzo, models Antonia Garrn and Elisa Senaui, actor Rodrigo Santoro and many others.
