One of our favorite things here at Stylesight is when fashion meets function. Some of the most exciting instances of this occurs within the footwear market – and the new collection from Oliver Sweeney is no exception.


The Compass Collection works the line between cycling shoes and fine sneakers in the most seamless way. Appearing to be sneakers designed around beautiful craftsmanship and luxury, these shoes feature inspiration directly borrowed from the cycling world. With leather straps  on the vamp to protect from pedal clips, and a double welted construction for durability, the shoes just scream quality.
