Strength of the upper/sole connection
SAWA shoes have a glued and stitched sole. The connection is considered to be complete. The sole is stitched with a waterproof nylon thread.
The shoe is bent at 90 degrees to define the flex point of the sole. A notch is made at the flex point. The shoe is then flexed 30,000 times and after this test it is observed whether the notch has increased. The notch did not increase at all, which proves that SAWA shoes are resistant to bending.
The sole pattern reveals the map of Africa
Team tip: If you are not sure which size to choose, take your usual size.
