Independent Swedish footwear imprint Axel Arigato unveil a brand new silhouette as part of its SS16 collection, the Platform Sneaker. The drop kicks off a series of new releases as the label seeks to streamline and refine its designs in the coming year.

The low profile Platform, as its name suggests, sees a chunky, raised white sole unit that’s then stitched to the suede upper, and then finished with rubber foxing tape for extra sturdiness and support.

Despite starting out in 2014, last year was Axel Arigato’s break-out year. Impressively for a brand that numbers less that 20, the label managed to release a new sneaker design every week across 2015. However, the Platform marks the point in which the label’s offering is streamlined and honed down to looks that will act as the brand’s signature calling card, with a limited set of releases coming in February and March.

Axel Arigato‘s Platform Sneaker drops today, January 27.
