The story of Oliver Sweeney feels like its straight out of Hollywood. At 16, he ran away from home and began living on London’s Underground Circle line. On a random day, Sweeney passed by the window of a shoemaker looking for an apprentice and the rest is history, later saying, “that advert saved my life.” By 1989, he was launching his own line of footwear, on the back of his Anatomical Last, which according to Sweeney mimics as closely as possible the profile of the human foot. Today, the company has expanded its line to include Sweeney London, a more youthful take on the core line of shoes Oliver Sweeney has come to be known for.
