An Innovative, Lightweight Sneaker Inspired By Copenhagen's Circle Bridge
The newest silhouette in ARKK's minimalist sneaker universe, the Velcalite takes creative cues from Copenhagen's convention-defying Circle Bridge. Whether you walk, run, or bike across, the Circle Bridge's intentional zigzag design encourages pedestrians and cyclists to slow down and take a breather.
Designed for all-day wearability, the Velcalite is a thoughtful synthesis of sneaker innovation and modern street style. A tactile and breathable Compiled Mesh pattern across the upper—informed by the Circle Bridge's intricate handrail design—and a unique lacing system inspired by the bridge's suspension cable structure—set the form and function of this sneaker. At its foundation is ARKK's custom ultra-lightweight Hover-X1 sole unit—making the Velcalite Summer 2018's most versatile sneaker.
"Copenhagen is a beautiful city, especially in the summertime," explains Kasper Høj Rasmussen, ARKK's Co-founder and Creative Director, "and whether you're exploring the city on a bike, in a canal boat, or by foot, there's always something new and inspiring to discover—even for those of us who live here. The Velcalite is meant to fit this specific kind of adventurous spirit that really comes to life during the long days of the Scandinavian summer."
