Tim Cooper “Cobbler in chief” of Oliver Sweeney speaks about the traditional shoemaking and creating a shoe company in the modern world. Founded in Britain in 1989, we’ve been making shoes great for over 25 years. We believe that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice comfort for style (or vice versa), therefore all Oliver Sweeney shoes are designed around our Anatomical Last. It’s a rather clever tool created by Oliver Sweeney’s founder after years of research that mimics not only the shape of the foot, but also its movement, whilst providing a superlative shoe fit that keeps our customers coming back for more.
Today, Oliver Sweeney is under the charge of Cobbler-in-Chief, Tim Cooper. A fourth generation shoe maker, he’s a great believer in the importance of traditional craftsmanship, but also knows that great design is about looking forwards, not back.
