Swims Galoshes





... to jest, kaljače. Gradske.


Swims is a Norwegian designer brand focused on functional, waterproof clothing. Johan Ringdal, the CEO and founder of Swims, launched his first collection in 2005. Today Swims offer a full range of shoes, galoshes, outerwear and accessories.

Mi se posebno fokusiramo na kaljace koje se navlace preko gradske obuce, hrabar koncept koji su, tokom studija ovog Norvezanina u Parizu, ismevali njegovi old-world-chic drugari.






Growing up with four distinct seasons in Norway, I never let go of the black rubber galoshes that my late grandfather passed on to me. In 1999 they accompanied me to a milder, but still rainy Paris. Wearing Chuck Taylor’s Converse and galoshes, I got around the severe rainfall that autumn. Not surprisingly, my footwear became the subject of many jokes around the art school I attended. Later, while living in New York, I blended in with an image-conscious culture that defied slushy streets, freezing winds and pouring rain. Naturally, this resulted in a lot of discomfort and many ruined pairs of shoes. 






A few more Manhattan winters went by while I searched for the right product before I finally took matters in my own hands and decided to develop SWIMS - The Modern Galosh! A stylish solution, embodying the essence of practicality: Wear your favorite shoes, slip on SWIMS when the weather is rough, slip’em off when you arrive at your destination. Enhanced comfort is assured and your shoes are guaranteed to stay shiny.

The SWIMS galosh is the product of my own experience, my appreciation of functional design, and my odd fascination with big city rain.


Za sada, muski range ima tri vrste kaljaca natikaca. Ovo je MOBSTER:





Then, there's CLASSIC:






A najnoviji dodataka galoshes familiji je CITY DUCK.





Swims iza sebe imaju par posebnih saradnji, sa Armanijem i John Lobb-om.








A onda, ako pogledamo u blisku buducnost, medju Swims obucu za prolece 2013, nailazimo na ovu kolekciju:
