I’m going to be straightforward with you – I am a shoe-aholic. There’s nothing like an awesome pair of kicks to complete any outfit. If you’re like me and spend a large portion of your paycheck on shoes, you would know how important it is for your shoes to fit. You would also know how buying a pair of shoes online is like playing a game of Russian Roulette – you never know if what you buy will fit.
Launched in 2013, Archules aims to take away that element of chance and become every man’s next online shoe-shopping destination. If you have an appreciation for quality footwear but do not have the time to visit countless shoe stores, Archules is your solution. With a range of classy yet affordable shoes, you can buy a new pair of shoes and ensure a perfect fit without leaving your home.
With this in mind, I didn’t hesitate. I ordered a pair of shoes and documented the entire process to give you a sneak peek into my shopping experience with them.
What Archules Does Differently
With a variety of styles from oxfords to loafers, I was like a kid in a candy store when browsing through their website. It was hard for me to not be distracted by the myriad of options which were inspired by European designs. Even so, ordering a pair couldn’t have been an easier experience. All I had to do was pick the style of shoe I wanted, check the size chart, choose my size, add it to my cart, and make payment. It couldn’t be more straightforward than that.
Then, you may wonder how this is any different from any other online stores. Well, Archules allows customers to choose two sizes (+/- 1 of the size you chose) of your purchased style to be delivered to your doorstep. Essentially, it means that they will provide you with two pairs of shoes in the style you ordered, so you can try both on and pick the perfect size for you upon delivery.
All orders are delivered between 3 to 7 days and the best part of all, delivers within Singapore. So, once you’ve placed your order, all you need to do is wait…
The Personal Touch
If you were expecting your regular postman to come knocking on the door, hastily asking you for your signature, giving you the package then leaving before you can say anything else, you’re in for a surprise. Deliveries are made by Archules staff themselves so you’ll know you’re getting a more personalised service.
Not only do they make the deliveries, they help you at every step of the way when you’re trying the shoes on. Roy, who attended to me, was there to lend a hand when I was trying my pair. He even gave me advice on how to take care of my shoes when I told him I had problems with shoes that get mouldy in storage. I now know that I cannot leave my leather shoes in the closet for long periods of time without airing them out. Thanks, Roy!Once I’ve tried the shoes I ordered in two different sizes and decided on the pair that fit me best, Roy packed both shoes into their respective boxes – one for me to keep and the other for them to bring back. He also told me how every pair from Archules came with a Shoe Care Kit to help with the maintenance of the shoes so they last much longer. Now, I have a new pair of shoes that fit me well and are comfortable to boot – I’ve been wearing them for over a week now and loving every second of it.
Men, It’s Time To Go Shoe Shopping
Archules brings the convenience of shopping online together with the ability to physically try on the shoes, which is something that only happened if you went to a shoe store. I definitely appreciate this service because I’ve had times when I bought shoes online that didn’t fit, giving me a dilemma over returning them or giving them away.
The company is intimately involved in every part of their shoe production from manufacturing to delivery – their shoes are designed by their in-house designer, manufactured from quality materials like real leather, and delivered to your doorstep by their own personnel. This ensures that the shoes you purchase are of the highest quality and will be worth your penny.Archules released their new collection on the 12th of December. And this holiday season, Archules is giving you a $25 rebate for every pair of shoe you purchase. To qualify, all you need to do is to snap a picture of your newly purchased shoes and post it on your social media platforms with the hashtag #Archules. In addition, they are also pledging $5 from every pair sold to charity as a way to give back to the less fortunate.
