Although stylish across the board, the Spring/Summer 2010 collection from Oliver Sweeney is divided into two focused groups: “London,” and “Goodyear Welted.” The former is the more contemporary of the two, characterized by washed soles and elegant shapes; the latter refers to a time honored construction method characterized by excellent ventilation and strength.
