There is a lot of swapping sites and apps and often follow an eBay style of design and functionality. I believe the Skwag app is so simple to use and it only works within your radius.
I had the privilege to interview entrepreneur Oliver Cross the founder and brainchild of Skwag. a new iOS application providing a dedicated marketplace for shoe lovers to browse and exchange footwear. This app is brilliant perfect for all fashionistas and shoe lovers out there.
Whenever I buy a pair of shoes after a couple of months I usually get bored of it, instead of buying a new pair of shoes why not swap your shoes? This iPhone app makes it easy to upload your shoes, add a personal description and browse through the marketplace, not to forget this app is totally free.
What inspired you to start this app?
The concept was founded around 6 months ago and we went live nearly two weeks ago. I spotted a gap in the market and decided to fill it with a new shoetastic marketplace.
What is the brand’s philosophy?
There is a lot of swapping sites and apps and often follow an ebay style of design and functionality. I believe the Skwag app is so simple to use and it only works within your radius. It cuts out all the costs and unnecessary delivery functionality which can put users off. At the end of the day its a gallery of shoes from other owners and even if they don’t swap they might find fun in a bit of online window shopping.
What has been your greatest achievement so far?
Featured on around 20-30 news and fashion sites so far, I really hope it picks up fast.
