It's a simple case of maths, thicky thickerson. Canvas trainers plus rain equals sodden feet.
True, you could always try wrapping a couple of plastic bags around your ankles, but that probably won't go down so well in your 10am meeting.
This is where Swims footwear comes in. Pitched as the modern day galosh, this is a collection of smart boots and brogues, all of which are designed to keep your toes dry.
Not only will you look dapper, you'll avoid contracting trench foot, which is always a bonus in our book.
