When a shoe company refers to a good pair of shoes as a “lifelong companion,” and offers repair services to prove that they mean business, it becomes obvious that this is no ordinary brand of footwear. The first collection of Oliver Sweeney shoes launched 1989, with a focus on comfort and function, priorities that have earned Oliver Sweeney a reputation for quality, innovative designs.
Sweeney began his adult life as a runaway, leaving home for London when he was just 16 years old. He found work as an apprentice for a shoemaker, and found his calling, too, with a keen eye for design that enabled him to create footwear that mimics the shape and function of the human foot. Turn the shoe over, and Sweeney’s sharp attention to detail becomes apparent. The soles are constructed with the same level of detail and craftsmanship as the uppers.
The luxury footwear collection includes Oliver Sweeney brogues, trainers, shoes and Oliver Sweeney boots, as well as men’s clothing and accessories. The company’s commitment to quality is evident in the detailing and materials, with leathers primarily purchased in Italy. Details like Sweeney's trademark kick out sole, two-toned leathers and double zippers transform his textured, oiled suede boots into stylish footwear.
Oliver Sweeney continues to pursue innovative designs, techniques and materials. Sweeney's trainers include footwear crafted from the skin of eels and stingrays. The durability of stingray skins has been known for centuries. Attila the Hun wore it as armor, but it took Sweeney’s imagination to incorporate stingray into footwear. Covered with tiny, bone-hard circles of cartilage, stingray skin is considered the strongest leather in the world.
