See?  I’m not fucking crazy.  Though in all honesty the hiking boot truck model is probably the ugliest pair of shoes made by SWEAR Alternative. The following text and photos courtesy of Solestruck Blog. “A quick trek to Google-Image search (my go-to for stalking), let’s you know that the obsession with the 90’s inspired and Portugal based Swear Alternative is alive and well. What was once a powerhouse brand among club kids, techno heads, ravers and […]

Rewind: SWEAR Kiss boots

SWEAR Kiss black red01

Woohoo!  Thanks to SWEAR maven Gerrixx for uploading scans of a 2001 SWEAR Alternative catalogue.  It’s helped sort out my mass of pictures.  I have a lot of updating to do.  Slowly adding profiles to the Archive page which will have company profiles and every picture I can get my hand on, hopefully organized by style. There is also a SWEAR facebook group if you are interested. The SWEAR Kiss platforms are legendary.  Less ravey, worn […]

Rewind: SWEAR Jetty

SWEAR Jetty 01 white 1

I suspect that SWEAR Jettys may be the originators of the whole “fluffy” trend (ie faux fur leggings/boots/bootcovers).  While Elsa Schiaparelli predated them by about 60 years with her monkey fur boots.  But I doubt those ever made it to a rave.  I’d like to know when the Jettys were first produced and if anything similar was made before.

Merry Xmas Ravers

December 25, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Well Merry Holidays everyone.  I def wish it could be a bit more ravery around here but I’m the apple that fell far from the tree.  I did however, manage to snag these right after getting off my flight.  Next to immaculate even after 10+ years. I love being behind/ahead of the fashion curve, so cost-effective. Christmas isn’t really my ball of wax, after working retail for 5+ years.  Love my family and everything but […]

Rewind: SWEAR Street Mix

SWEAR Street Mix 07 e

SHOE PORN.  More to come  I think I literally pulled every picture of SWEARS off the internet.  EVERY PICTURE.  The Street Mixes personally aren’t my favourite style of SWEARS but they were immensely popular.  I think the Camo SMs are the best of the bunch.
