Our innovation to the footwear industry: SWAC
Our formula is called a SWAC Score, an abbreviation for “Shoe Wearability And Comfort”.
A system and method for measuring the comfort and key aspects of footwear design & materials analysis to provide a simplified SWAC - (Shoe Wearability And Comfort) Index.
TO START A SIMPLE PROCESS - WE PUT THE NUMBER OF HOURS on our SWAC Card.
With Hope Rosa shoes, we test every aspect of the shoe in real-life use as well as in the laboratory, using equipment usually used to test sports shoes on our high heels. We assess 10 aspects of our shoes to calculate its final SWAC Score, and these include fit, gait, mid-foot contact, arch support, and more.
The final SWAC Score represents a simple number: How many hours you can wear your Hope Rosa high heel without any pain or discomfort. Each shoe we’ve designed has been tested and a SWAC Score calculated by our testing partners, and all of them will allow you to go all day in our heels with no foot pain.
10 Areas Evaluated in SWAC Score:
- Mid-foot contact
- Arch Index/ Support
- Weight of Footwear
- Bunion Friendly
- Hours of Comfortable Wear
