Introducing the Marathon Runner

The Axel Arigato Marathon Runner is a lifestyle sneaker that draws inspiration from the aesthetics of 90s running shoes. It is made with a lightweight sole and breathable mesh upper. The sneaker also features the signature Arigato branding on the side. It is available in a variety of colorways.

There are several meanings associated with the name Axel Arigato. Firstly, the name refers to a mythical figure who will live on long after we do. "Arigato" also means "thank you" in Japanese, which refers to the Japanese influences in the designs. Axel Arigato is literally translated as "hard to exist", which means it is valuable as well.

The shoe features a chunky sole, mesh panels for breathability, and a layered upper reminiscent of vintage running sneakers. It's crafted from LWG-certified leather, combining a classic look with a touch of luxury. While not explicitly designed for athletic performance, the Marathon Runner offers a well-cushioned sole for everyday comfort, according to user reviews.
