Oliver Sweeney Spring/Summer 2012 Footwear Collection

For SS12, Sweeney have concentrated on lighter shades and materials without jeopardising the sturdiness of the shoe. Here’s a peak at their collection:

A Different Slant
Christie & Lidell brogues

 Sweeney’s latest brogues Christie (lace up) and Lidell (slip on) have been given a different slant – the subtle and unique asymmetric toe.  Adding to the sartorial flair is the colour blocking of rich tones of brown, tan and black.

London Loafers
Ibbotson Loafer

Staying with the high shine leather is the Ibbotson loafer in deep colourful purple and blue with a more conservative black option.

Here you can see the quality of this shoe’s construction through a cut out ‘window’ in its sole waist. It’s a great excuse to put your feet up in the board room. 

Summer Suedes 
Alex boot, Bushnell slip on & Homan apron shoe

 Sweeney have taken their  perennial favourites :  Holman ( apron lace up shoe), Alex (apron lace up boot) and Bushnell (slip on) and changed them from the dark classic leathers to a more laid back look in pale sand, stone  and grey suede with a leather piping trim.  Great to wear with the light Linen suit or a pair of coloured cotton chinos.

A Lighter Goodyear Welt

In their Goodyear welted collection, they’ve taken the lightweight further and made the Edwards (Derby) and Abrahams (Spectator) with the lighter and softer (but still hard wearing) Feather Light EVA sole. Shades are Gaucho (light tan) and grey.
Abrahams is looking dapper and spectacular in contrasting suede and leather, both in light shades.

The Wedge

Butler, Bennett and Hallow are given the on trend wedge look with the ultra lite XL wedge sole. 
Bennett in stone
You can choose to look good in the rich brown or the cooler stone and grey
Hallow in grey
Great worn with denim or chinos.

After the soft smooth eel skin and sparkling stingray trainers of last season, Sweeney have gone for the classic minimalistic look this season and chosen matt grey Nubuck and brown waxy leather.

Travelling Light
Maclean loafer
To sparkle in the sun, Sweeney have reinvented their Maclean travel loafer in rich jewel tones of purple and blue suede, but also in taupe as a more neutral option.

Summer Linens
Smouha, Darcy & Applegarth

Keeping cool in linen uppers in three styles: Smouha, Darcy and Applegarth.  The soles are of hand woven jute in the authentic Espadrille construction from Murcia, home of Espadrilles.
Neutral shades of white, natural with a darker option of navy.

Leather Sandals

These leather upper sandals have lightweight soles featuring a Japanese sole print on a blue suede foot bed. The dark brown leather gives a more sartorial look making them ideal for the city as well as the beach.
