SWIMS may have sprung to life just a short decade ago, but the design philosophy underpinning the brand is far older.
Born from a marriage of traditional Norwegian necessity to fend off the elements and a desire to give a robustly functional item a bold new identity, SWIMS shoes fuse the best of tradition, performance and modern design.
It is this appreciation of the delicate yet necessary balance of form and function that made the footwear specialists a natural choice to join the roster of brands which make up The Collaborations.
Taken on first glance, each pair of SWIMS shoes offers a fresh take on classic summer footwear design. However, beyond their eye-catching aesthetic lies a whole host of tech-specs too impressive not to talk about.
To withstand the pressure of being worn both on pavement and poolside, each pair of SWIMS shoes boasts a 3D moulded TPU structure. So, no matter how many times you tightly pack your pair of SWIMS into your suitcase, they'll retain their shape.
To ensure that heat and water are no match for each pair, mesh fabric uppers and ventilation gills offer optimum air circulation, breathability and water drainage. Meanwhile anti-bacterial mesh liners and non-marking rubber soles round off the impressive list of features.
Wherever in the world you take your SWIMS this summer, you can be sure that impeccable function and unrivalled style are at your feet.
