SWIMS A/W13 Footwear Collection

August 8, 2013



If you have ever experienced walking in the rain especially in the fall months you know that rain boots are critical to keeping your feet dry. However, rain boots are often big and bulky and for those who use public transportation, it can be tricky changing in and out of them for the work day. 

SWIMS footwear, founded by Johan Ringdal,  has created the modern golash for men.  Ringdal born in Norway created the solution to a problem most on the go men and women have in city life when it comes to finding a chic rain boot for work or play. He created SWIMS, a “stylish solution, embodying the essence or practicality.”

SWIMS allows you to to wear your favorite shoes, slip on SWIMS when you are in the elements and take them off when you are done. The beauty behind them is they are less bulky, easy to carry and still stylish to the point you may not want to take them off.

Ringdal created the SWIMS A/W 2013 collection with durable and waterproof shoes. The diverse collection has two core labels the ‘Charles’ and the ‘Henry’.  Of course this immediately brings to mind the Royals.


The ‘Charles’ has a leather linning with high-density nylon and rubber. It’s also paired with a white sole for contrast. The beauty in this style is its tailored classic boot and wing-tip look.




The ‘Henry’ is more practical and can be worn throughout the day as well.  It is waterproof but still stylish. SWIMS HARRY

The SWIMS galosh is the product of Ringdal’s own experience, his appreciation of functional design, and his odd fascination with big city rain. Purchase your SWIMS online.
