Every Sneaker, Different Story. Whether rocking minimalist high tops, low tops, or a pair of laceless ARKK kicks, every person’s journey will be as unique as their individual aspirations. And so, these are more than sneaker stories. These are stories of the daring, of those looking for a different way, these are stories of dreamers and doers.

Alasdair Thomson is an award-winning sculptor from Edinburgh, Scotland. He has a unique passion for bringing together the old world art of stone carving with contemporary subject matter such as flowing fabrics, streetwear apparel, and sneakers like the ARKK Raven S-E15. We are not only inspired by Alasdair’s mad sculpting skills, but also by the story of his personal journey from ‘student of the game’ to straight up ‘game changer.’ As a part of our ESDS series, we dug deep to get the full story on Alasdair’s art, his hometown, and his passion for sneaker design.

Amanda Lilholt is a rising star in a new generation of Scandinavian designers. Never one to simply imitate, Amanda is pushing limits and disrupting the Danish Design game. Here at ARKK, we not only love Amanda’s stunning furniture and interiors, but we also applaud her daring innovator’s philosophy: ‘I don't believe in perfect. I believe in taking things a bit further.’ We couldn’t agree more.
