Loafers were originally developed in Norway. Swims hail from the same country and specialise in durable rubber and mesh variations of the same model. Stylish and practical, they are perfect for holidays and boating, since they are non-slip and fast drying. Swims are the modern galosh, a stylish and practical solution to whatever conditions the weather can throw at you. A reinvention of the loafer which includes an array of functional elements including a durable, yet flexible outer shell, nylon mesh front to ensure breathability, rib pattern sole to maximise traction and an anti-bacterial EVA foot bed for added comfort. The Swims loafer has been created with the summer holidays in mind, perfect for the beach and sea or just relaxing by the pool, a great alternative to the flip-flop or sandal this season. Arriving soon at John Anthony for S/S13, the vibrant hard wearing loafers and boat shoes will be available in a wide array of Summer colours.
