the shoeologist: enter to win free shoes!

5 Oct

To celebrate the launch of my new, shoe-obsessed corner of the Internet I will be giving away a free pair of shoes.  Yes, you read that correct, FREE SHOES!  Specifically, this gorgeous pair of mustardy-yellow, snakeskin stilettos from Nine West.  I have been coveting these for several weeks now–the color  is divine, the shape is classic, and I can’t imagine a better color for fall.

There are a few ways you can enter to win, and I hope you do a little of everything to increase your chances of free footwear!

1.  Leave a comment on this post, make sure you use a valid email address.  Duplicate comments will be thrown out.

2. Tweet about this contest, make sure to include BOTH a link to this post and mention @theshoeologist so I can track your entry.  (And while you’re tweeting, go ahead and follow me as well for more updates and info about contests and giveaways.)

3.  Post about this contest on your own blog, make sure to send a direct link to heidi.theshoeologist [at] gmail [dot] com or @theshoeologist so I can get you entered.

Contest is open until October 15, 2010 at midnight Pacific Time.  I will combine all entries from comments, tweets and blog posts and use to generate a winner.  The lucky winner will be announced on Monday, Oct. 18.

  6. Amy So October 5, 2010 at 10:13 pm #

    What a great idea! I used to really love shoes, but somehow life has taken it out of me. I think your website might reawaken that spark! ;)

  12. pinksuedeshoe October 5, 2010 at 11:13 pm #

    Love them! And, I’m pretty sure that they will turn my fall wardrobe from meh to Mwah!

  13. Megan Bowler October 5, 2010 at 11:24 pm #

      Being married to a man who is 6 foot 6, I can ALWAYS use me some good high heels!

      Super excited about your new corner of the internet!

  17. Z October 6, 2010 at 3:13 am #

  21. nancypearlwannabe October 6, 2010 at 7:15 am #

    I don’t know that I would ever have occasion to wear such lovely heels, but I would sure as hell find one!

  22. Kasi October 6, 2010 at 7:24 am #

    I am not a shoe person but I am in LOVE {make note because I do not use that word ~ ever, ask any past relationship} with these shoes … You may be the key to convert these feet to fashion!

  23. Jennifer Boehm October 6, 2010 at 7:40 am #

    Love this! and Love you Heidi!

  24. Rhi October 6, 2010 at 7:50 am #

    What a wonderful idea! Also, those shoes are divine.

  25. just Corby October 6, 2010 at 7:52 am #

    My favorite detail is the threading on the inside! Swooning up and down, left and right!

  26. Janssen October 6, 2010 at 7:57 am #

    This is VERY cool! You are just too fun for me!

  27. Lisa October 6, 2010 at 8:02 am #

    How fun! These shoes are divine!

  28. Andrea Jolene October 6, 2010 at 8:17 am #

    COMMENT! I adore this color… for it is the color of fall. And you KNOW how I feel about fall. I have also posted it on la blog…

  29. Shannon October 6, 2010 at 8:20 am #

    Congrats on the new site… what a way for us women to drool over our shoes and decide what we want next. Of course, a yellow snake-skinned pair from Nine West wouldn’t be bad… lol.

  30. Fumiko October 6, 2010 at 8:25 am #

    This blog gets me all kinds of excited!!

  31. Ashley October 6, 2010 at 8:26 am #

    So glad it is up and running! I need my shoe fix everyday and you my dear are the answer :)
    So glad I know you. And not just for fashion advice…

  32. Jess October 6, 2010 at 8:50 am #

    Fun! I am loving this blog concept for you.

  33. Stacy October 6, 2010 at 8:54 am #

    So excited about the new blog, Heidi! You have the best shoes, and now every time I shoe shop, I wonder what you would buy if you were with me. Or if you’d approve of the shoes I buy. I probably have too many ballet flats for your taste.

    I’ll try to blog about this, but I might not be able to do the linky thing properly. :)

  34. Connie M October 6, 2010 at 8:57 am #

    Great shoes! You know how to pick them :)

  35. Allison October 6, 2010 at 8:57 am #

    Um, yes please?

  36. Talena October 6, 2010 at 9:07 am #

    This is cool Heidi. And I’m commenting because I want free shoes!

  37. Larissa October 6, 2010 at 9:25 am #

    I am in desperate need of cute heels, so I’m crossing my fingers.

    I love your new site, by the way!

  38. Stephanie O'Brien October 6, 2010 at 9:46 am #

    Mustard is my new favorite color and I have a fabulous mustard scarf that would be pretty much perfect with these shoes, a pair of classic jeans, a black shirt, and earrings to make it all pop. Okay, I am getting carried away. In short, I need these shoes. :)

  39. Naomi October 6, 2010 at 9:54 am #

    I have those exact shoes in several other colors because they are really comfortable AND cute. But I think I need them in mustard, too.

  40. Lisa October 6, 2010 at 9:59 am #

    Oooh, I need a pair of non-mommy shoes! These are beautiful.

  41. Kayla October 6, 2010 at 10:01 am #

    I never used to like yellow but lately I’ve been converted. I love those!

  42. Lynze Wardle Lenio October 6, 2010 at 10:16 am #

    Love the web site, love the shoes! You’ve really outdone yourself here, Heidi! This is awesome!

  43. Carrisa October 6, 2010 at 10:31 am #

    Very pretty. Good choice girl.

  44. Krista - Poppyprint October 6, 2010 at 10:33 am #

    Ok, not sure I could actually walk in those, but here I am takin’ my chances! I think I’m going to heart your new blog! p.s. your twin sent me.

  45. betsy October 6, 2010 at 11:12 am #

    yes i want those!

  46. Angella October 6, 2010 at 11:16 am #

    Those are FABULOUS.

  47. Kristie October 6, 2010 at 11:32 am #

    Love the blog Heidi, and so happy for you!..Yep, I could use those shoes…

  48. digamba October 6, 2010 at 11:40 am #

    Oh…I really need shoes and yellow is my favorite color!

  49. Danielle October 6, 2010 at 12:47 pm #

    I need those shoes. Why? Because Nine West is a good, practical shoe. Also, because I love a pointy toe. Oh, and most importantly, because I have no yellow shoes. Please shoeologist, pick me.

  50. Elizabeth October 6, 2010 at 12:50 pm #

    I’m so crossing my fingers. Those shoes are fabulous! Count me in and THANKS so much for the chance to win.

    Those would be great for getting back on my feet after this baby comes!

  54. Megs October 6, 2010 at 2:18 pm #

    Please bless I win those fabulous shoes. Amen.

  55. Haley October 6, 2010 at 2:46 pm #

    new to your blog. I think I’m addicted already. I need to show it to my hubby who will then think I am the most under-shoed women he knows.

  56. Karen October 6, 2010 at 3:19 pm #

    Ahhh, these are gorgeous!

  57. Lena October 6, 2010 at 4:04 pm #

    A shoe blog! I’ve come home. And I love those yellow numbers.

  58. Rachel October 6, 2010 at 5:07 pm #

    Oh, PLEASE pick me! I live those yellow shoes. I feel almost desperate with longing for those yellow shoes. I know I will dream about them tonight!

  59. Laurel of Sass Attack (RIP) October 6, 2010 at 5:54 pm #

    I used to have a very similar pair to those. They died, much like Sass Attack.

    Still loving this new project, miss heidi!

  60. Sara October 6, 2010 at 5:56 pm #

    I have always loved shoes. I have always struggled with a body image issue. Maybe that is why I love shoes so much. No matter how much I did or didn’t weigh, I could always count on my shoes….same size year after year, diet after diet. That was until I got pregnant last year. My body swelled, my rings were snug, I was getting a bit down. What could cheer me up? Of course, my shoes would still fit! Right? Oh, the horror when I put on my favorite pair of grey patent ankle boots only to find the zipper almost gave out when I tried to zip them up. What? They don’t fit? How could that be….
    Alas, 8 months later the pregnancy weight is (very) slowly coming off. However, I am happy to report, shoes all fit fine!! Kate Spade how I’ve missed you!

  61. Karen Pillette October 6, 2010 at 10:14 pm #

    Awesome shoes …. I too love shoes, but with a kiddo in college, my collection has to wait for a few years!! Love your site!! Keep up the good work!

  62. Jessica October 6, 2010 at 11:40 pm #

    My shoe collection stinks. These babies would make my day!

  63. HRH October 7, 2010 at 9:36 am #

    I want these shoes. I’m a size 10. Also, I’d like the orange shoes with turquoise interior. Can I get a super-entry for these shoes if I also mention that I love you on a deep and personal level?

  64. Kim October 7, 2010 at 10:47 am #

    I would love these shoes!

  65. Michelle October 7, 2010 at 11:53 am #

    you have outdone yourself this time, Heidi ;)

    LURVE these heels.

  66. Sarita October 7, 2010 at 3:14 pm #

    Love em. Want em.

  67. Jessica October 7, 2010 at 5:48 pm #

    OOH I love LOVE lOvE these shoes! I have so much of this mustard yellow color in my wardrobe, and I really like how it compliments my fair skin. I’m crossing my fingers that i’ll win!

  72. Ciarra October 8, 2010 at 10:37 pm #

    Hiya Heidi! I just got your email and I’m really excited about your new blog! I’m definitely adding you to my blogroll so I can see all your (gasp!) over 200 pairs of shoes. Oh my.. I haven’t blogged in awhile but I’m still reading my favorite blogs. (You.) Thanks!

  73. Amie October 9, 2010 at 7:32 am #

    I would LOVE these shoes!

  74. queenbee October 9, 2010 at 5:45 pm #

    When I read about your new adventure I laughed out loud – this is the perfect venue for my shoe crazy niece! I will be following diligently even though my shoe collection is pathetic compared to yours. If I win those shoes I am going to have to have a lesson in walking in them :) I love you!

  75. Polín October 10, 2010 at 8:09 pm #

    Nice shoes!!

  76. Jen Trox October 11, 2010 at 9:47 am #

    I heart shoes – especially free ones! Heidi, your Aunt Becky has been telling me about you for a year as we both have a tiny lil obsession with footwear. ;) Email me – let’s meet!

  77. TAB October 11, 2010 at 10:08 am #

    Those shoes are so pretty!

  78. Janelle October 11, 2010 at 10:48 am #

    I have been banned from heels for far too long now (pregnancy will do that to you) but I’m almost due and in need of some cute new shoes for fall! Love them!

  79. Allie October 11, 2010 at 2:58 pm #

    Wow! I love them! And I’d never let myself buy them, because I’m all “black pumps go with everything” practical. But I would totally wear those and love every minute of it.

  80. Sara H October 11, 2010 at 3:58 pm #

    My shoe collection really is pathetic. These little lovely’s would definitely spruce things up a bit:)

  81. Wendy October 11, 2010 at 8:06 pm #

    Oh, these would absolutely help me recover from the post-baby wardrobe blahs.

  82. kerry October 12, 2010 at 8:22 am #

    ya know what they say about the color yellow….?
    it’s for crazy people….
    and i swear i’m not makin’ that up…..:o)
    “Yellow, it’s for crazy people.”

  83. Renee October 12, 2010 at 2:45 pm #

    I don’t think that I have ever owned a pair of yellow shoes, but I am LOVING these. They would definitely be a fun, cheerful addition to my shoe wardrobe! :)

  84. Tiffany October 12, 2010 at 9:48 pm #

    Love love love these! I never would have thought I’d want yellow shoes, but I do!!

  85. ashley October 13, 2010 at 2:18 pm #

    I’ve been loving your blog. Will we ever get to see your shoe room?

  86. Annie October 14, 2010 at 8:24 am #

    These shoes are so the style that I would love to try, but I am too afraid to take the plunge and buy them. I think that makes me a prefect candidate to win! I love the shoe blog!

  87. Tiffani Mantlo October 14, 2010 at 10:22 am #

    Oh my God, shoes!
