Editor’s Notes: A part of its FW19 collection, Axel Arigato introduces an all-new sneaker with the Catfish. The silhouette falls in line under the brand’s new direction for FW19, positioned alongside the Marathon and Clean 180 styles.
The Catfish is a nod to late ’90s and early ’00s skate sneakers. The complementary campaign for the shoe (see the gallery above) is set in a messy teenage bedroom typical of that timeframe, featuring kids with their sneakers still on.
Axel Arigato’s new silhouette is crafted from luxe calf leather. The Catfish also welcomes contrasting suede inserts and mesh accents. The tongue of the shoe boasts a secret zippered stash pocket that allows you to carry small items. Finally, the sneaker is finished with reflective cut-out details on the toe and heel counter to provide contrast to the leather.
You can cop Axel Arigato’s Catfish in three neutral colorways for $255 each. Be on the lookout for a high-top version of the sneaker coming later this year.
