NEW STYLES & COLORS – SANDALS, OXFORDS, AND SLIP-ONS
Lightweight, colorful, and deceptively simple, the Arcopedico classic shoe was developed by inventor Elio Parodi in 1966, based on his patented twin arch orthopedic sole design which distributes weight over the entire plantar surface. Proof of concept was performed by Elio’s wife Maria, who took the early designs to cafes around Vila do Conde for women to try on. The supportive bottom is complemented by the nylon knit uppers that conforms to individual foot shapes. This shoe - now known as the LS1151 Oxford - makes an excellent travel shoe due to its light weight and walking comfort. All shoes including the vegan Leta and Leina styles are still made in Portugal to exacting standards.
