Collectors begin by downloading the app and registering via Facebook. They make a profile page and gallery which they fill with images and descriptions of their shoes, both worn and new. They can then browse the collections of other users — giving a thumbs up to shoes that they are interested in. The owner will then receive an automatic notification and, if they see something they like, the users are matched and can discuss their potential trade. Skwag offers localized searches, enabling users to find potential exchanges in their local area.

Could other used luxury fashion products be exchanged in this way?
