Att snöra sin sko på rätt sätt kan faktiskt vara lite av en konst. Våra skor är som du vet inte snörda när de ligger i sin kartong. Visste du att det finns olika lösningar för smala, breda, höga eller ömmande fötter – och att du med rätt snörning får skon att passa dig bättre och sitta perfekt på foten? Den vanliga korslagda snörningen, som vi är vana att se, ger dig ett jämnt tryck över hela foten och passar bra till fötter som ser ut ungefär som lästen skorna är gjorda efter. För de flesta passar denna snörning bra, men det finns andra snörningsvarianter som vi vill tipsa dig om. Läs mer, http://arbesko.com/se/about/snor-din-sko-efter-fot/

A brand new safety shoe from us at Arbesko will soon be available at resellers across the Nordics – Arbesko 850. An airy, comfortable and supple safety shoe, with a cool design.

– For us who work with safety- and occupational shoes the biggest reward is when someone tries on a new model and immediately notices the improvements we have worked so hard to achieve. Arbesko 850 is one of those models that’s just spot on, a safety shoe that our test panel has been enthusiastic about from the second they tried it on, says Richard Parent, our research and development manager.

Convenient fast lacing

Arbesko 850 is delightfully airy, comfortable and supple. It features a hardwearing outsole with good grip and is equipped with the latest version of the Boa® lacing system, which means you can do them up on the go – and by the press of a button, undo them and take them off. Arbesko 850 also has a comfortable insert, which together with Arbesko’s unique gel cushion, Energy Gel® 2.0, strategically placed at the heel, takes cushioning, rebound and resilience to a whole new level.


Come autumn there will be a sequel to this success – Arbesko 870 – with the same excellent properties and great feel. The only difference is that the autumn model is equipped with the Cordura® function material, as opposed to the mesh and microfiber combination of Arbesko 850. Arbesko 870 also has a more autumnal design with an orange accent colour.

In close cooperation with end users
Arbesko has developed both new models in close cooperation with a group of end users, which has proved very successful.
– The fact that we have been able to test and discuss pros and cons with those who will actually wear the shoes for hours on end is worth a great deal in the development process, says Richard Parent.
– Together with our test panel we have achieved something really, really good. The shoes are supple, quick and easy to put on, but above all they are extremely comfortable!

Arbesko 850 will be available in shops from the end of June, and the sequel, Arbesko 870 will follow in September.
