Axel Arigato Orbit Trainers

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.

Axel Arigato Genesis

Axel Arigato Genesis Trainers : Old Meets New

The Axel Arigato Genesis Trainers blur the line between tradition and modernity, drilling the label’s Scandinavian tastes into a razor-sharp, retro silhouette. Inspired by runners of a time gone by, the street-approved design is more beefed up than your standard Axel Arigato sneaker, riding on a chunky outsole that propels the foot a monumental 3.2cm off the ground. High-functioning and supremely cool, let us tell you why these bulbous shoes should be the next pair to enter your collection.

How Are The Axel Arigato Genesis Trainers Made?

Handcrafted in Portugal and emitting outstanding quality, the Genesis trainer is crafted from a mix of materials in a palette of pure white. 75% of the shoe sees smooth Italian leather and suede intertwined with 25% mesh which is draped at the vamp and flanked to both sides, offering subtle textural contrast across the upper. Internally, a leather lining provides a supple surface for the foot to slot onto.

Are The Axel Arigato Genesis Trainers Comfortable?

Equal parts style, equal parts substance, the Axel Arigato Genesis sneakers uncover the perfect balance between form and function. In particular, a removable cushioned footbed energises your every step from underfoot. Easily slotted in and out of the design, the cushioning acts as a barrier that absorbs shock directly from the ground, protecting your feet from any undesirable tension.

As well as a removable cushioned footbed, a sturdy 3.2cm outsole elevates the foot, providing the wearer with not only a stable foundation for pursuing daily activities but also that extra dose of height. The outsole is weightless both in and out of motion and comes composed of robust rubber.

Axel Arigato Brand Guide

Axel Arigato Brand Guide

Despite being thousands of miles apart, Japan and Sweden share a surprising kinship, in a shared minimal design sensibility. Combining Scandinavian sleekness with a playful Japanese-influenced sensibility, Axel Arigato sneakers are the perfect alternative brand for those looking for something different.

Axel Arigato Trainers

Helmed by Swedish designers Max Svardh and Albin Johansson, Axel Arigato has grown from humble beginnings in 2014 as an online-only footwear brand to one of the most sought-after sneaker producers for those in the know. Stocked only in select boutiques and department stores worldwide, the key to the brand’s success lies in its dedication to top quality materials and excellent craftsmanship at a reasonable price point. Crafted in Portugal from premium leather, suede and custom-woven mesh, the range is set apart in its distinctive 90s styling, taking influences from street and skate and updating them for a modern audience. The finishing touch comes in the packaging: a custom made box, branded dust bags and—uniquely—a pair of branded chopsticks in a tongue-in-cheek nod to the brand’s Japanese inspiration.
