Aquila was founded in 1958, with humble beginnings in a small shoe factory in Melbourne. Building a reputation for high-quality shoes with Italian styling and traditional construction techniques, the Aquila name quickly became synonymous with well-crafted footwear. Over the following decades, expansion into retail across Australia continued steadily as fashion-conscious men caught onto the stylish shoes Aquila creates. Tapping into the modern man’s desire for an effortless retail experience, Aquila added men’s clothing to its product range in 2012. Quality, craftsmanship and detailing remain at the core of the offer, with Aquila creating timeless pieces that last from season to season.
