Cap-Toe Sneaker by Axel Arigato

View all 7 Photos

Although men’s shoe brand Axel Arigato pumps out a new design every week, it doesn’t skimp on quality like the fast-fashion we are all too familiar with. In an effort to adapt to the increasingly digital modern era, the French and Swedish operation creates cutting edge designs that meet the needs of today’s consumer as trends continue to change at a rapid pace. But their sleek cap-toe sneaker – released at the end of May — isn’t going out of style anytime soon. The classic silhouette in white and grey features subtle details that originate from its hand-made Portuguese construction. An Italian rubber cup sole is balanced with a mix of suede and a leather cap toe on the shoe’s upper with calf skin lining for a quality product that elevates the sneaker beyond its predetermined niche. Luxurious materials bring an unexpected edge to the minimal design; these simple kicks would pair just as well with some dusty old blue jeans as a button down and tie. At $175, they are a versatile addition to your wardrobe that would quickly pay for themselves. While Axel offers a variety of styles with a signature modern flair, its sneakers stand out perhaps the most for their unique versatility. Explore more of the brand’s offerings here.
