Spring is only a few weeks away. To celebrate, the generous folks at Johnston & Murphy are giving one ShoeBlog reader a pair of free shoes to jump start their spring wardrobe.
Entering this contest is simple – just leave a comment on this blog post telling us which pair of women’s spring shoes you would like to win and why. To view the shoes, just visit the Johnston & Murphy website. The only hard part is picking out the shoe you’d like to win. Even though Johnston & Murphy just launched their women’s footwear line a few years back, they have hit the nail on the head because there are shoes for every occasion and the styles are quite timeless. To help you narrow down some options, here are my personal favorites.
For the beach lover, the Ruth Gold Ring Thong ($128) and Lisa Tassel thong ($98) are sure to keep your toes pretty but cool on the hot sands.
For the hardworking sole, wouldn’t you like to stroll around in the office in the Emily Mary Jane ($228) or the high heel tortoise platform pump ($198)? What I love about these two pair of shoes is that two very classic and wearable styles have been updated to give them a fun but still elegant look.
And for everyday wear, there’s the Carmen wedge made of cork, Noelle tortoise slingback, Kristen espadrille wedge, Laura espadrille, Shannon T-wedge, and even a Tod’s-like driver shoe(price ranges from $138 – $198).
See what a mean? It’s tough to decide which pair of shoes you’d like to win. But don’t take my word for it, have a look at the Johnston & Murphy website and choose a pair that fits your own personal taste.
Other contest details: Only one entry per person will be accepted. Contest is open to US residents only. Entry must be submitted by March 15, 2010 11:59pm PST. The winner will be chosen randomly based on the qualified applicants. If the shoe style or size is unavailable, winner will be asked to select an alternate pair or shoes.

Net-a-Porter is celebrating a huge milestone – they have received one million orders! Congrats Net-a-Porter! To celebrate, they are giving one lucky winner a $40,000 shopping spree. In shoe speak, that’s about two months’ worth of Louboutins at roughly $666 a pair. Of course, the winner doesn’t need to spend it all on shoes. They’ll need to find an outfit that goes with the shoes. No purchase is necessary to enter, which you can do here.
On a personal side note, back when the internet was at it’s infancy, I remember the naysayers didn’t think that women’s online shopping would be successful. Not enough women online they would say. Or how can women shop when they don’t know their sizes. Net-a-Porter’s milestone is as much about their success as it is (to me at least) that women are a force and market that can’t be ignored.
I have just finished selecting the winning numbers for ShoeBlog’s 2009 Holiday Giveaway.
The Grand Prize winner is Nikita, at lucky comment number 59:

Congratulations to GiGi, comment #87 as chosen by Random.org!
We’ll be contacting you shortly to get your shoe size and mailing address so your fabulous new Taryn Rose shoes can find their new home.
GiGi’s entry comment on the original contest was sweet, if just this side of racy!
My husband is in the NAVY…when he comes home for Christmas I think these should would be very fitting for our own, private Christmas party
Also, for those of you who didn’t win this time, the Fierce Disco shoe has gone on sale for $311.50 (33% off) at the Taryn Rose site since we started the contest 2 weeks ago - which is even better than the SHOEBLOG discount code that is still in effect at the site until December 31, 2009.
