Aquila is a family business founded in 1958, from humble beginnings in a small casual and business shoe factory in Melbourne, Australia. Building a reputation for quality shoes with Italian suit styling and traditional construction techniques, the Aquila name quickly became synonymous with well–crafted footwear.
Over the following few decades, expansion into retail across Australia continued steadily as fashion-conscious men caught onto the stylish shoes Aquila create.
Tapping into the modern man’s desire for an effortless retail experience, Aquila added men’s clothing to its product range in 2012, taking fashion cues from European style trends to create looks that complement the footwear range. Quality, craftsmanship and detailing remained at the core of the offer, creating timeless pieces which last from season to season. Based on popular demand, the clothing range is now also available from a number of retail stores.
Today, 58 years since the foundation of the company, a third generation of family members are hard at work continuing this legacy. Aquila now operates more than 30 retail stores nationwide and is as proud of its rich heritage as its position as the leader in men’s fashion and footwear in Australia.
