We all know the saying, ‘April showers…’ so to prep for some spring time wet weather we have found the perfect line of shoes from Norway aptly named, SWIMS.
Launched in 2005 and inspired by traditional galoshes, the brand has escaped the cheese factor and continuously rolls out water-resistant rubber shoes in classic shapes, all while offering great support (unlike galoshes). They also have a rubber sole for traction and ventilation to ensure breathability. However, if you are looking for a proper galosh they sell those too in a plethora of colors to wrap around your precious brogue so it doesn’t get dampened by the weather.
This season men can find great looking laced loafers (similar in design to a boat shoe), as well as a penny and flat loafer and the Fabio, a classic sneaker with SWIMS rubber details.
Go get yourself a pair and spare those suede shoes the damage of the deluge.
