ARKK Copenhagen


ARKK Copenhagen is a Nordic sneaker brand established by two Danish co-founders with a passion for streetwear style. Without finding a brand that expressed their own personal style, they set out to create their own. In two short years, the minimalist silhouettes are in over 37 countries across the world. After finding their place in the sneaker world, the brand continues to redefine simple, clean design.

"We already showed you Danish sneaker brand ARKK Copenhagen’s Spyqon FG H-X1 model. It’s out now at select retailers. And coming tomorrow, the design-driven label is serving up something completely different than the ultra-slim Spyqon: The Pythron S-E15 is a high-top sneaker boot with a strap enclosure and purist design."
ARKK Copenhagen Pythron S-E15
Sneakers Magazine - August 17, 2017
"No es nada fácil conseguir que una high-top resulte atractiva, hecho que da bastante mérito al nuevo lanzamiento de los daneses de ARKK Copenhagen. Lo consiguen además con una silueta, la Pythron, con un aspecto muy estilizado y que aporta a simple vista una extrema sensación de ligereza. Acumula muchos detalles interesantes como el strap del collar que nunca falla, que no lleven cordones o la pieza del talón."

Kicks OFF Blog - August 18, 2017
"At the very core of the brand, you’ll see that every collection is about their vision of creating ultra-luxe minimalist sneakers. In this day and age, it’s not about having bright and loud kicks but really having pairs that’ll work with whatever you own. The designs are 100% made in Copenhagen, focusing on fusing fashion, function and most importantly inspire confidence."
In Focus: ARKK Copenhagen
Sole Movement - August 14, 2017
"Asked about the inspiration for the sleek technical shoe, ARKK Copenhagen pointed to Danish design tradition. In particular, the award-winning 8 House in the Ørestaden of Copenhagen reflects in the shoe. The building’s shape – like the number “8” or the sign for infinity – reflects in the figure-eight shaped laces of the Spyqon FG H-X1."

Hver især er de udstyret med en overdel bestående af ARKK Copenhagens egen Futuregrid overdel, der skaber en uovertruffen komfort og pasform. Den lette overdel består af ét stykke stof, strikket i et mønster, som danner skeletlignende struktur, der let og elegant omkranser dine fødder. Ligesom foregående modeller, sidder den nye ARKK Copenhagen Spyqon FG H-X1 på brandet egen Hover-X1 ydersål."
