Pierre-Robert Helaine began Arche Shoes with the philosophy: “If you think too much, walk. If you can’t think, walk. If you think poorly, walk some more.” So it's no surprise that Arche shoes are made with the perfect synergy of comfort, style and durability for living life on your feet. French shoe design at its best.
Founded in France in 1968, today Arche is still a family-run company tightly linked to its local identity in Chateau-Renault near Paris. What makes Arche shoes so special? Here are five reasons you'll love this brand.
1. Arche shoes - French design & creativity
Designed near Paris where true fashion begins, Arche always manages to deliver unique and distinctive designs season after season. Each shoe has its own individual identity, with a creative yet timeless aesthetic that’s characteristic of good French design.
2. Awesome colours
Since its inception in the ‘swinging sixties’, Arche has believed that “black and brown do not go with everything.” As shoe lovers, we couldn’t agree more. Every Arche collection of sneakers, boots and sandals is offered in inviting and mouth-watering colours that perfectly match the season's fashion trends.
3. Exquisite leathers
Arche uses supple European leathers and the softest of nubucks which retain a rich, authentic look due to their traditional tanning and dying process. Nubuck leather is water and scratch resistant while creating a cosy and breathable home for the foot - beautiful and practical for life on the run.
Everyone who wears Arche falls in love their ultra-comfortable rubber soles. All Arche sneakers, boots and sandals feature 100% natural Latex cushioning for maximum durability, flexibility and shock absorption. Their outsoles are made of ultra-light latex ‘lactae hevea’, the ultimate in comfort.
5. Effortless Style, just right for Australia
