I came across the Aguias Spartan 1 because of a post on the forums. I spent some time checking out the company’s website, and I really liked the look of their shoe. It reminded me of a retro style athletic shoe with a minimalist twist. The people at Aquias were kind enough to send me out a pair of their Spartan 1 to test out these last few months. After spending some time with the shoe, I thought it was time to share my thoughts. Aquias based the design of their shoes off of shoes that are made for the art of Capoeira. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Capoeria it is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. The designers of the shoe figured anything that could stand up to the rigors of Capoeira training would also make for a good running shoe. So just how good did their running shoe turn out? Read my thoughts on the Aquias Spartan 1 after the jump!
