Oliver Sweeney is a young company drawing on a deep well of experience. Since it was founded in 1989 it has walked its own path with a fine eye for sharp but always comfortable footwear. Built around our unique Anatomical Last, which mimics as accurately as possible the profile of the human foot, our shoes have always looked right on the money without slavishly following the short-lived vagaries of fashion trends.
Oliver Sweeney ran away from home to London when he was aged 16 and lived on the London Underground Circle Line. One day he passed the window of a Shoemaker who was advertising a vacancy for an apprentice and, as he later said, ” that advert saved my life.” Today ….Oliver Sweeney is one of Britain’s leading designers and manufacturers of shoes, accessories and outerwear.
