Must-have: The Axel Arigato Cap-Toe is the new sneaker classic

Tennis, skate and running shoes are front and centre when it comes to the more popular sneaker forms on the market right now. This season, though, we’re calling for low sneakers to make a comeback, and the Axel Arigato Cap-Toe sneakers are the perfect shoe to herald their return.

There’s something just undeniably classic about the Cap-Toe. It’s cut incredibly clean, with minimal lines except for the prominent leather toe. It’s got a relatively thin, three-inch sole, keeping the attention on the shoe itself.

You can never go wrong with sleek, classic white sneakers.

The standard, textured leather versions are a safe bet. Available in light grey, white and black, with a subtle gold logo on the side, they’re the perfect shoes for casual wear. The Cap-Toe also comes in perforated leather — a more unique option available in a wider range of colours such as military green, beige and navy.

If you’re someone that prefers softer, pastel colours, then the suede range is where you ought to look. Italian suede leather is capped with a leather toe in a similar hue, and these are available in lush browns, a storm grey, and beige. The smoothness of the suede just adds some oomph to the already stylish shoe.

For those who love their sneakers with added flair, the unique White Cayman embossed leather shoe is a show-stopper. It’s a white sneaker crafted from glossy, printed leather, and finished off with a matte white cap toe. Texture talks, and the juxtaposition of finishes makes this one a favourite.

Take your pick and be spoilt for choice with the Cap-Toe. Shop them here.
