Lightweight, Washable Footwear Collection Gives Men’s Feet a Lift

SPARKS, NV (October 21, 2014)Arcopédico USA, longtime U.S. distributor of high-quality, Portuguese-made travel and comfort footwear for women, debuts its new men’s line of travel and comfort footwear for spring 2015 (currently available).

Highlighting the signature features that define all Arcopédico USA shoes, the new men’s line boasts a patented, twin-arch sole and anatomical footbed, as well as patented Lytech™ fabric uppers made from a proprietary fabric blend. Lightweight, machine-washable, durable, flexible and breathable, the leather-like Lytech material is also Biocalce certified as vegan and environmentally friendly.

“There are really not enough high-quality, handcrafted travel footwear options for men on the market,” says Arcopédico USA General Manager Dan Simas. “The Arcopédico USA men’s line combines premium Portuguese manufacturing with modern comfort technology to create sophisticated, business-class styles that men can wear from the office to the airport to the business luncheon.”

The new Breeze derby-style shoe (pictured right; MSRP:$110; available in black or café brown) features an adjustable, laced upper for a custom fit for most feet; a broad, open toe-box to avoid cramping, pinching or blistering toes; and the flexible, breathable Lytech material that keeps circulation flowing throughout a busy day on his feet.

The Heaven loafer (pictured right, MSRP:$110; available in black or café), a more casual option, is ideal for the traveling man who is in and out of airport security lines with its convenient slip-on style. Featuring a lightweight, polyurethane sole, a patented twin-arch support system, and flexible Lytech upper with accommodating  elastic bands, the Heaven supports men’s feet as they work, travel or simply lounge around the house.

The Men’s LS, or “Shock,” (pictured right; MSRP: $110; available in black or gunmetal blue) offers the shocking comfort of a hand-knit sock, with the durable sole of a walking shoe. The upper’s soft, flexible fibers conform to the shape of the foot for luxurious, all-day comfort and circulation, while Arcopédico’s signature twin-arch sole and anatomical last supports the whole plantar surface of the foot for fatigue-free walking.

Arcopédico USA shoes can be purchased at independent shoe stores throughout the U.S. Simco Imported Shoes, Inc. is the sole U.S. distributor of Arcopédico shoes. A family business, the company was formed in 1983 by Manuel and Virginia Simas after discovering Arcopédico shoes during a trip to Portugal.
