“Real materials, real shoes, stand out from the crowd.”
Dazzling and eye-catching, Chiêng is special and unique in every way. This pair of classic Oxford is a sweet result of many months of hard work from Swing Love, combining classic leather and a traditional twist from brocade fabric. Chiêng is now ready to accompany your happy feet on the street or to swing out on the dance floor all night, and will definitely stand you out in any party 🥂
Our insoles are different! Our removable leather insole (i.e. the material on which your foot is placed) provides excellent breathability and moisture absorption capabilities. There is also another soft-padded layer added underneath the insole to bring you extra comfort & support for your every step.
Our outsoles are made with high quality bovine leather with hand-stacked heels (2.5cm), and guarantee to last a long time. Leather outsole is always the best choice as the more you wear it, the better it will begin to mold and compress to the contours of your feet.
You can choose:
- Full leather: for perfect swingouts.
- With rubber caps on heels: for extra grip on heels.
- With full rubber caps: for greater traction, recommended if you mainly use the shoes for outdoor. Our outsoles are resoleable so they are easily replaced by cobblers when worn out.
Chiêng is uniquely handmade from glitter rose gold sheep leather and hand-woven brocade fabric from Hoa Tien community.
For many Swing Love friends who haven't known, Hoa Tien is one of the famous and longtime brocade weaving “cradle” of Thai people, an ethnic minority in Nghe An province for more than 100 years. Vietnam has over 54 different ethnic groups, which of each has its own customs, traditions and handicrafts. Among them, many villages have gradually lost their traditional handicrafts due to the cultural exchange and the rapid development of modern economy. However, Hoa Tien community, a village famous for their brocade weaving still retains its unique origin. Brocade weaving handicraft have been absorbed, preserved and handed down by generations. Each artisans put a lot of effort into the product, blowing the soul into the unique pattern to make them more alive. Swing Love is very proud to work with such special material.
- Uppers: well-sourced full grain/ top grain cowhide leather (we do not use genuine leather)
- Veg-tanned leather lining
