Free Shoe Giveaway from OnlineShoes and Patagoina

>> Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Let's cut right to the chase: OnlineShoes is letting me giveaway any pair of Patagoina shoes from their website to any reader of mine! How sweet is that?

They just sent me a pair of Patagoina Banyan Lace Hemp for me to review and try out:

My wife said they look good and "teachery" and that they'd be great to wear to class. Here they are on me:

They have great traction (something some "nicer" shoes don't have), they fit well, they look good with jeans, but they have minimal support, so I wouldn't want to be on my feet all day with them on. But because of the minimal support, they're about the lightest pair of shoes I own! Overall, they're pretty great!

For the LADIES, they're promoting these 4 shoes for the giveaway:
- Tin Shed Rider ($230 boots)
- Fore Runner Evo ($120 running shoes)
- Fitz Sneak ($100 "sporty" shoes)
- Maha ($100 cute flats)

And for the FELLAS, they have these 4 shoes for the giveaway:
- Banyan Lace Hemp (my $140 "teacher" shoes)
- Maui Chukka ($115 "dressy" boots)
- C-Street Lace ($90 board shoes)
- Advocate Stitch ($70 microfiber slip-on)

If you win, you can pick from one of the 8 pairs above, or you can choose from ANY of their Patagonia shoes (up to $150)!!! They have nearly 150 shoes in that link above, and only 26 are over $150, so that leaves over 120 pairs for to you choose from for this giveaway!


• To be entered into the Patagonia Shoe giveaway, just leave a comment! That's it. You're entered.

• To get your name in the hat a 2nd time to try to win some free shoes: follow me on twitter, and send out this tweet:

Check out the @OnlineShoes_com SHOE GIVEAWAY on @SteveinaSpeedo's blog! -

• To get your name in the hat a 3rd time to try to win some free shoes: you'll have to "like" Steve in a Speedo page on Facebook (if you haven't already), and then find the status that says "I'm giving away $150 in shoes to OnlineShoes! Go to my blog to be entered, but LIKE this status for another entry!" Then "like" that status for another entry!!

(So, for example, if there are 100 comments, 50 tweets, and 30 likes, the comments will be assigned numbers 1-100, the tweets will be 101-150, and the likes will be 151-180. Then I'll pick a random number that will correspond with a new winner! You could have your name in all 3 "hats" to better your odds!)

Legal junk:
- Open to residents of US. Sorry America's hat Canada.
- Just like in all of my giveaways, I've only been sent a pair of shoes to try out; they have not asked, told, or bribed me to say anything else in this review. All of these thoughts are my own.
- When you leave a comment, please "sign" your name if you don't have a blogger account, otherwise it will be hard to figure out who you are if you're the winner. For example, say something like "It's Steve S. from St. Paul. Gimme shoes!!"
- I'll assign all entries a number (for the blog comments, tweets, and likes) and then use (or other random number generating scheme) to pick a winner at random.
- If I can't get a hold of the winner in 3 days, I'll re-draw for a new winner(s). So make sure to CHECK BACK in about 10 days!

Comment now (and maybe tweet and like to better your odds) to try to win some shoes!! Do it now, as the giveaway will close on Sunday, Oct 20. And I'll be back to announce a winner sometime mid-week next week (around the 22nd through 24th). Thanks for the giveaway OnlineShoes!!

Love your blog. Love that you have such nice giveaways. Bummed that these companies don't recognize the "world" in WWW and don't realize that I can buy from their site even if I don't live in the US (or not, as the case will be).

Steve Miller 7:52 AM, October 15, 2013  

I never win anything, but it can't hurt to try.

Reichenberger's nobody's papa that I'm aware of. Now I, on the other hand, find most of my discretionary income these days going toward buying pink ephemerata for my daughter. You feel my pain, don't you Steve? (wink wink, nudge nudge)
