Axel Arigato Clean 90 Trainers - White Leather
Axel Arigato Clean 90 Trainers in White Leather. A token of sumptuous Scandi minimalism, the Axel Arigato Clean 90 Trainers dust validation over the theory that less is more. In fact, since 2014 Axel Arigato has proved quite the advocate for minimalism with an antithesis approach to crafting footwear. Keen to subvert the norm, the Swedish brand has derailed seasonal collections, stripped things back and shunned traditional outlets in order to breathe new life into the sneaker scene and the rewards from taking such risks are tangible in the label’s popularity.
Thanks to Axel Arigato’s disruptive agenda, footwear culture has never felt as fresh and kudos are owed to the Clean 90 trainer for playing a role in the wider movement. Expertly crafted in Portugal, this crisp white sneaker is wrapped in Italian leather and subtly illuminated with a flash of gold foil that details the label’s moniker.
Though very much a blank canvas on the surface, the shoe offers much more than initially meets the eye. Knuckling down on practicality in the lower foundations; it comes lined with leather, allowing the supple base to mould to the contours of the foot while wicking away moisture. A removable cushioned footbed is also stationed inside to provide arch support for those days where you find yourself locked on your feet more than usual. A rubber cupsole, measuring at 3cm, rounds out underfoot - further enhancing the wearer’s stability and comfort.
If the refined sensibility and perfectionist attitude of this design didn’t satisfy enough, you sneakerheads worldwide will be pleased to know that there are still finer details to touch upon. Cross-culture references play out heavily across Axel Arigato’s operations; take the naming for instance - ‘Axel’ is a popular boy’s name in Scandinavia while ‘Arigato’ means thank you in Japanese. Spilling out and into the packaging, further Eastern design cues feature in the form of some chopsticks - branded and neatly nestled into the shoebox for a unique touch. The label’s quirky efforts are signed off with a logo-laden dust bag and an unmissable, banana-toned box.
Simple, sleek and sure to stand the test of time, the Axel Arigato Clean 90 Trainers are a versatile investment, worthy of endless wear within the cityscape and beyond.
