Swims galoshes: The Easy Sell

The smart man's protection for his smart shoes in a collection of bright happy colours.


Your dad called them “rubbers.” And as a child flopping around the front hall in those flimsy black shoe skins, they confounded you. It’s no surprise few men wear them today. They were ugly, tore easily and squeaked like balloon torture when stretched over loafers. Not Swims. The Norwegian-designed galoshes are made from a soft rubber compound that’s resistant to tears with a low-friction lining that makes pulling them on easy. They’ll make sure you never have to scrub another salt stain off your wingtips. Best of all, they come in a variety of bright happy colours, including classic black—because in time, we all tend to inherit dad’s good sense.Swims classic galoshes, $100,
