Winter is technically three months but in Canada we’re usually faced with a good five months of cold, snowy, slushy weather. Because of this, my footwear choices become pretty limited and I’m always on the hunt for functional and fashionable footwear. Since being introduced to the Norwegian brand SWIMS, it has quickly become a favorite of mine for just these reasons. The brand embodies the clean and carefully designed sensibility that Scandinavian design is so well-known for. Not simply a men’s brand, SWIMS has wonderful offerings for women as well. Case in point, these olive-green wellington style boots. They’re my first line of defense against snow, slush, slop, and rain while all the while maintaining my style.
