Made of rubber and nylon but resembling nothing like Crocs (thank Heavens) are the loafers from Swims, a Norwegian-based company that specialises in products designed to keep you dry or waterproofed (yes, they sell umbrellas and parkas too).
Besides being rather stylish (though I really need to see them in person to be 100% sure), the loafers are actually built for life on a boat, providing great grip as well as vertical gills on each side to provide ventilation. Which means as far as our tropical weather is concerned, it’s a perfect match given how we’ve been getting sudden showers and flash floods lately.
Rather affordable as well, a quick check online reveals they are priced at around USD150 or so, which makes them a steal. The only drawback? I’ve yet to locate an online store that ships internationally, though it lists Robinsons as a stockist in Singapore.
If anyone has seen them at Robinsons, or bought them online, do leave a comment here. I’ll be eternally grateful.
