I've lived in Axel Arigato shoes for the last three years and keep coming back (shopping IRL in both London and Sweden, three different pairs). I like the paired back style with small details, and the fact the brand is still *relatively* off the radar vs veja, common projects, etc. Find them very comfy and they age decently well.


I'm typically a half size so would love that to be catered for. Otherwise I tend to go for the larger whole size.

I got a pair of the trendy oversized sneakers a couple of years ago, and the fabric panels were white while suede parts were dyed dark. When the shoes got wet, the dye spread and stained the white fabric panels and ruined the shoes after only a couple of wears.

A friend recommended whose style advice I quite admire. The assortment of color is tasteful.


In my case, the shoes felt stiff. Had trouble sending them back, but I couldn't keep them due to the fit.

Not so good value for price, there are better options at the same price with greater quality. I have worn 2 pairs of Axel Arigato, both were a bit stiff, not so comfortable. They were both quite durable though.
