• SWIMS new collection has landed at Ricci

    May 20 2014
    Summer is fast approaching, we can all dare to dream of lazy days, drinking beer, hanging out in the sunshine with friends and of course the overwhelming excitement of your summer holiday! 

    We've all had a little taste (if we dare to believe) of the 3 month heat wave the forecasters keep banging on about. If like me, looking at your dusty drawer of summer clothes makes you feel a little sad with a hint of what on earth did i look like last summer??!!! Then now is the time to get things sorted. First stop has got to be suitable summer footwear, ditch the heavy trainers and socks and get on the flip flops and SWIMS.

    The SWIMS collection features durable rubber and breathable mesh loafers and trainers ideal for hazy sunny days. Developed in Norway, SWIMS are a modern take on galoshes. Galoshes are rubber waterproof shoes you slip on over your footwear to protect your shoes from extreme wet weather. In the UK we put style first and SWIMS is the perfect compromise, Ideal for the summer the SWIMS loafer is rubber soled making them both non-slip and waterproof, the various designs feature breathable mesh variants keeping your feet fresh and dry on hot days. The loafers are fast drying so hanging out at pool parties or boating means you can for once look smart and keep cool at the same time.

    Here is a collection of some of our editors favourite styles.
