Celebrating all that is to be adored from true English craftsmanship, Swift and Co have just announced their Kickstarter campaign, launching their Heritage Twist collection. As a backer you are making the Swift and Co dream a reality by having a direct impact on the tooling, style and manufacture of this magnificent collection. Consisting of classic men’s shoe styles, such as brogues and Chelsea boots, all of the collection are hand made in Swift an Co’s factory in Burnley, East Lancashire. The entire Heritage Twist collection is made using Swift and Co’s innovative new sole design. Achieved with interlocking, dovetailed layers of shock-absorbent materials, which give the shoes maximum comfort to see any gent through from the office to night out in style. Managing Director, Richard Swift explains their philosophy: “Our shoes are a perfect fit for the lives of modern men. Today’s style-conscious gents covet classic footwear design but want shoes that are comfortable and adaptable enough for a busy and varied schedule. Heritage Twist completely fits the bill.” You can back Swift and Co for as little as £85.00, for this you will receive one of the first pair of shoes to be produced from their collection in a colour that suits your style, which would normally cost you £150.00. Further more, 5 lucky backers have the opportunity to be flown to Swift and Co’s factory for a one-on-one design consultation from which you will create your own, truly bespoke pair of shoes – based on a precise 3D scan of your feet! Our personal favourite option is the opportunity to personalise your very own pair of Swift & Co shoes with your initials. For the very reasonable price of £150.00 you can select from the Swift & Co ‘Borwick’ brogues, ‘Lancaster’ lace-up brogue boots or ‘Garstang’ Chelsea boots and have your initials embossed on the tongue.
