Axel Arigato Orbit Sneakers : Space Age Style

Taking influence from architecture, art and music, the Axel Arigato Orbit Sneakers continue the Swedish brand’s disruptive approach to footwear. Known for their quality build, exquisite materials and ultra-contemporary aesthetic, the Orbit takes things in a slightly more basketball-inspired direction, positioning themselves seamlessly in line with modern-day trends. Capable of being styled with everything from sweatpants to suits, if you find yourself riddled with indecision and eager to learn more when it comes to materials, fit and subtle details, then you’ve come to the right place.

What Are The Orbit Trainers Made From?

As we mentioned earlier Axel Arigato doesn’t mess around when it comes to materials and the Orbits Sneakers are no exception. Handcrafted in Portugal, the sneakers come constructed primarily from a premium white leather base, that’s durable enough to withstand external intervention yet soft enough to conform to the foot, keeping comfort levels high. Deploying an array of pastel coloured suede paneling for additional points in the sensory department, the Orbit is finished with a fully cemented treatment ensuring its shape and dynamic proportions remain intact even after repeated wear.

How Do They Fit?

Despite most of Axel Arigato’s lineup fitting true to size, given the Orbit’s larger proportions they do run slightly bigger than the other sneakers in the brand’s lineup. If you find yourself in between sizes it could be recommended to size down in order to ensure a better fit. Check out a video of them on foot below…



What are the Orbit Sneakers Main Features?

Despite not being a functional shoe on paper, the Axel Arigato Sneakers do come with their fair share of intricacies. Starting with a perforated toebox that allows for greater airflow when things heat up, a removable cushioned footbed and plush leather lining envelop the foot in a double-helping of luxury comfort. Below a 3.5cm customer rubber cup sole unit towers over the competition, bringing stability and grip for daily pursuits. Both glued and stitched to reinforce its connection, it also comes made from 20% recycled materials for sustainable sensibilities. Equipped with flat cotton laces, embossed branding can be found to the heel whilst a gold cursive callout to the side ensures an opulent persona.
