The SWIMS ‘Harry’ Collection for AW13
From the creators of ‘the modern galosh’, SWIMS has created the Harry range, as part of their AW13 collection – two very different water resistant solutions for the modern man.
A classic with a practical twist
Launched in 2005, SWIMS was Johan Ringdal’s solution to the dilemma of how to wear stylish shoes in bad weather. Drawing inspiration from his Norwegian roots and traditional galoshes, he founded SWIMS a brand which creates shoes with a playful and stylish aesthetic while embodying the essence of practicality.
The Harry collection combines natural rubber with technical fabrics and treated leather, which evokes an unexpected and elegant silhouette with a classic; yet practical twist. The galosh interpretation gives a functional and distinctive contemporary feature to the sole unit.
The Harry Derby is a water resistant derby shoe with a moulded, protective “galosh belt”, with timeless style and contemporary design features, this traditional shoe is perfect for the office as well as the commute.
Similarly, the Harry Boot, another contemporary take on a classic; is a water resistant calf leather boot, also with a moulded protective “galosh belt”; a great Smart/casual boot for the Autumn/Winter season.
While SWIMS design is fundamentally driven by a desire to produce practical footwear, uncompromised by any weather conditions, their shoes have become fashion favourites in their own right, making them the must-have shoe for this season. The collection will be available at www.swims.com and selected retailers nationwide.
The range is offered in three colour ways; mud brown, black and brown/orange at the RRP of £129.00 for the Harry Derby and £139.00 for the Harry Boot.
