Uniting function and fashion, the Swims line of stylish galoshes had originally started as an accessory for men’s shoes. The company’s city-loving founder called WORK in 2009 with the idea to develop a line of galoshes for heeled women’s shoes.
The main challenge of this project was developing something that would adapt to the various shapes, sizes and styles of women’s shoes. So we made the City Slipper to suit the most common shape of heeled shoes, in three sizes: extra small, small, and medium. To further connect the slipper to the urban-inspired Swims brand, we imprinted the soles with maps of Tokyo, Paris, and New York. The maps are of the high-end shopping districts in each of the fashion capitals.
