Launched in 1958, Australian icon Aquila is a shoe brand with humble beginnings in a small workshop in the heart of Melbourne. A family business resulting from one man’s passion and craftsmanship know-how, the label quickly established themselves as leaders in the men’s footwear market. With nearly 50 years of shoe-making experience behind them, Aquila is synonymous with quality, accessible luxury and wearability that speaks to the discerning Australian man.
Aquila has built a reputation for high-quality footwear grounded in classic Italian styling and time-honoured shoe-making techniques. The brand pours decades of familial experience into each blueprint, transforming the timeless tenets of European footwear into inherently modern designs to suit all occasions, wardrobes, and personal tastes. Rich natural leathers and the finest quality materials are paramount to each collection, delivering longevity and comfort without sacrificing the heritage hallmarks of their aesthetic. Tailoring is explored with a sense of wearable sophistication – crisp shirting and trousers provide the perfect base for building both corporate and formal capsule wardrobes without competing for attention.
THE ICONIC’s curated edit of Aquila champions the strength, confidence and precise style the brand is renowned for. Brogues, Oxfords and smart lace-ups in a wearable palette of brown and black ensure the office and special occasions are met with ease, while a selection of loafers, moccasins and desert boots offer a thoughtful approach to casual dressing.
