Launched in 2014 by Swedish natives Max Svärdh and Albin Johansson. The brand believes in the Swedish/Japanese philosophy behind minimalism and this is the main source of inspiration for the brand. The word Arigato or Thank You in Japanese, originally and literally means “difficult to exist”. It was used to express that something was valuable and not easily found.
Axel Arigato products are manufactured by a small number of suppliers based in Europe and the majority of production is based in Porto. All materials are carefully chosen and the leather is a by-product of the meat industry and sourced from tanneries with environmentally good practices, certified by the Leather Working Group. The long-term goal is for sustainability to be integrated into every aspect of the brand and day-to-day running of the business. Minimising the impact is a never ending journey and the ultimate goal is to continue to grow in a sustainable way.
Inspired by running shoes throughout the 90’s, the Marathon Runner is made with an exaggerated sole, blowing up the features of a typical running shoe.
The Marathon R-Tic presents a new silhouette, designed as a continuation of the Marathon Runner. The technical mesh upper features molded details and a mix of printed and embroidered graphics. The lightweight bold sole is responsibly made using bio based EVA, developed from sugarcane and partly recycled TPU.
