Swims, the stylish galoshes

Walk like a Norwegian in stylish synthetic slip-ons. Yes, they're rubber but they're lemon-yellow ballerina-slipper galoshes…

Walk like a Norwegian

Spotted at the Oslo Opera House (in the gift shop, no less): Charming, colourful rubber footwear. Glorified galoshes, but definitely design-worthy ones. It’s the modern galosh from Norway. The creator grew up on the Scandinavian coast, where traditional black-rubber galoshes were must-haves. He just added style.

Now, when the weather acts up, wear your favourite shoes (yes, there are versions for high heels) and slip on some rather sleek SWIMS to channel some of that Norwegian innovation. Be bold banishing those late-spring showers in vibrant colours! And the collection goes beyond galoshes with penny loafers and ballerina slippers. Think deck shoes for summer sailing or beachcombing. Or maybe a mucky day of dog walking. You’ll be on trend on the trail. Φ
