Ok let me give you a bit of a visual here - you have a certain look planned for a night out, from how you are going to have your hair, down to what shoes you want to wear, and then you look out to see the rain.  There is no worse feeling knowing that if you wear your beautiful brand new shoes they will inevitably be ruined by the monsoon outside (or drizzle for that matter).
Swims are a company based in in Norway who have taken the basic principle of galoshes  and flipped it on its head to create a fashion statement, with its primary purpose left uncompromised.  

You can arrive in style with these fun additions to your shoes and either take them off or keep them on depending if they match your outfit of course.  Swims have a whole range of sizes and colours for men and women, taking into consideration the type of shoe.  Oh and if you are prone to falls, the rubber sole with a map of London, New York or Tokyo grips should keep you on your feet and looking fabulous.


  1. Such a clever idea but it wouldn't stop your feet getting wet on the inside of the shoe. Is this something that you would wear?

    And I have your first comment!!!
