Footwear from Jim Rickey embodies sports luxe style with a cool Scandinavian spirit. For smart weekday looks pick a pair with a polished edge or master athleisure vibes with low-key designs and classic trainers. Ready for weekends exploring new cities - or just venturing out to your local.
Whether you’re a trainer fanatic or just appreciate premium off-duty footwear, this edit from Jim Rickey will have you clearing space in your wardrobe for an extra pair (or four). This Scandinavian brand was established over 10 years ago with the meeting of two friends and their creative minds over a drink called the Rickey (in a bar aptly name the Shoemaker). With experience in the footwear industry, the duo was determined to bring something new to the market - with a timeless twist - which Jim Rickey has been doing ever since. Instead of focusing on trends, the brand designs classic sneakers that will look fresh season after season. Complement the sophisticated look of its low-tops by accessorising with a leather bag for effortlessly smart styling.
With influence taken from the clean-cut and minimalist fashion in the brand’s native Stockholm, these trainers are certainly more for wearing every day than during sports. Although Jim Rickey proudly puts its name to the trainers, its footwear isn’t branded with motifs so as not to detract attention away from the unfussy silhouettes. Each pair is finished with the label’s statement thick white sole, however. Typical trainer shapes are updated in supple leather and velvety suede, in neutral tones, bold monotone designs or with pops of richer colours. Nail the athleisure trend in lace-ups teamed with cuffed jeans and a shirt for polished Northern European styling, and tap into the layering trend too by wearing with a bold puffer jacket - a necessity in Sweden.
