Got the Monday morning blues? Well, ShoeBlog has just the thing to cheer you up. We're excited because we have two back-to-back contests for you this month.
Our first giveaway is the Bread N' Honey shoe by a new brand called London Underground, which launch in Fall 2007. These triple buckle mary-jane shoes are a neutral putty color that pairs well with jeans. Can't you imagine going to a rock concert in these? The decorated, printed stacked heel is also spot on with this season's trend of decorated heels except they aren't razor sharp stilletos that will give you intense pain at the end of the day. The winner of our latest giveaway will receive the Bread N' Honey, which retails for $100, in their size.
Before I go into contest entry details, I thought it would be fun to mention some of the subtle originals of the shoe, which is by designer Paul Kaufman. During a meetup with Paul and the London Underground team (Hi Tamara!) at WSA I discovered the brand was named after the London underground transportation system. What's even more interesting is the purpose of the raven and brass hardware resembling diamonds or jewels on all the shoes. In London, ravens protect the Tower of London and the crown jewels. According to http://legend, if the ravens ever le...chy would fall. Similiarly, the raven logo on London Underground is meant to protect the shoes and the jeweled hardware. Didn't think you would get a history lesson with this post, did ya?
Okay, by now you're itching to enter this contest. It's pretty simple, actually. Just submit a comment to this blog post by midnight PST on Sunday April 27 Monday April 28th (due to clarification on international entries). Good luck!
