That’s because the brand’s Clean 90 Zip sneakers eliminate laces altogether for a zip-up closure where shoestrings are usually found. They’re handcrafted in Portugal with 100% Italian suede upper in a military gray shade and lined with leather.
Down low, the shoe is finished off with a matching Italian Margom rubber cup sole. Additional details include a leather hit at the heel and metallic foil Arigato branding at the side. The result is a versatile look that can be worn in a number of settings. It’s also been reinforced in order to keep its original shape through multiple wears.
If you’re ready to give laces a rest, the Axel Arigato Clean 90 Zip is available now for $215 from retailers including shopspring.com.
