KontrolBeauty conversed with Hwang to discuss her vision, brand, and style advice for shoes.
Sole Patches was created and branded by Jenn Hwang.
The brand is based out of New York City with plans to expand across the globe. Owner Hwang stated “I created a sole because I have a daily commute of 5 blocks for work. I hated carrying around a pair of sneakers. Everything that was on the market wasn’t cutting it for me. You would have to commit to just one pair and form it into your shoe.” The crafty name Sole Patches did not come easy. “After shooting around some names brainstorming. I first thought about ball patches. My friends said NO! I then thought of sole patch which is another name for men use it’s like an inside joke. It was catchy and great.” As we conversed Hwang expressed her ambition and
wishes for growth. She is very intelligent and driven. She plays all roles in her independent business adventure “this is a brand new company based in my studio apartment.” If she could describe a trait any business owner should have it would be “ambition and curiosity. You have to really wonder and do something about it. There are doers and people that follow and people that help you get started.”
Hwang is inspired by her love for wearing high heels. Sole Patches LLC, helps with making women feel more comfortable in their shoes. Hwang expressed her classic everyday shoe is “3 1/2 pump

Hwang believes “when I’m styling fashion, its fashion all that way. But women shouldn’t have to suffer and look good. You don’t have to compromise style for comfortability. Use sole patches!” She also included it’s important to care for your feet. “My tips for the women is to make sure you give your feet a break.
