The hallmark of all Arcopédico shoes can be seen in two fundamental design principles: the “barefoot” upper, a soft, non-binding design that conforms to the top of the foot to allow circulation and all-day comfort, and the patented, metal-free twin arch-support soles (made from molded polyurethane), which protect the foot arch and allow the distribution of body weight through the entire plantar surface.


In 1966 Arcopédico’s founder Elio Parodi, invented the original knit shoe. To this day, the knit LS walking shoes are Arcopédico’s top-selling style.
Arcopédico’s knit shoes feature a blend of techno elastic upper technology with the use of a special knitted nylon fibers that provides a controlled freedom of your foot shape. Lined with a soft interior for barefoot wear and built-in SanSmell™ technology to promote an anti-bacterial environment for overall foot health.
