Reworking its popular silhouette for SS20 by taking inspiration from vintage runners, the Swedish underground label Axel Arigato presents these ‘Genesis Vintage Runners’ in white and black. Crafted in Portugal from recycled nylon and polyester, the chunky sneakers are set on a modern, streamlined sole to create the perfect fusion between retro and contemporary. The design boasts suede overlays throughout, while Axel Arigato‘s gold-tone branding is printed on each side panel.

Axel Arigato is a contemporary fashion brand with online focus, founded in 2014 by Max Svärdh and Albin Johansson with a disruptive agenda — to question the whole structure of the industry. The label initially fostered momentum by releasing new sneaker designs on a weekly basis, subverting the fashion industry’s traditional practices of seasonal drops. But its footwear-centered origins, now expand into a larger realm of accessories and ready-to-wear designs with clever subtext, URL-referencing prints and coy graphics. The Swedish label never wanted to be a streetwear or a luxury brand, but their use of premium materials in all of its products and hand-picked retailers to work with, have really changed the game for Axel Arigato.
