Keen on Clogs
At the end of last year, I entered a couple giveaways onBig Mama and BooMama's blogs. I had never heard of the line of footwear offered by KEEN before the mama's hosted their giveaways. I cruised around the KEEN website and I entered both of the giveaways along with a gazillion other people. I had the opportunity to meet Big and Boo in August at a Beth Moore conference. (Big (Melanie), By (me), Boo(Sophie)I was jumping up and down excited when I received an e-mail from Melanie saying I'd won the KEEN giveaway!Before this giveaway, I had two categories of shoes: #1 Darlin' pink slippers. #2 Cole Haan. Hands down favorite shoes. Ever. Wearing a pair of Cole Haan's equated to walking on a cloud. Not that I have ever walked on a cloud. I have never paid full price for a pair of Cole Haan's. Never. Ever. I normally purchase them when they are marked down to 60-75% off, or on very rare ocassion, find them at TJMaxx.I could order anything on the KEEN website - anything - and it was FREE. And FREE is better than my best bargain deal on a pair of Cole Haan's. I picked the Charleston clog. I love Charleston. I love clogs. It was an easy choice!I am a technological dinosaur and KEEN has one of the easiest websites to navigate.So here's a day in the life of my Keen Charleston clogs: Admiring my new Charleston clogs.Walking on the brick walkway made me think of being in Charleston.These clogs not only look good and feel great; but are designed for adventure.Clog's in the grass. You'll notice blue jeans in the next two pictures. They were actually the first pictures taken; but I had chocolate brown socks on and my youngest teen, Victoria (bless her fashion minded heart) helped me from making a fashion faux pas.She told me that black clogs and brown socks were a no-no. Just know that normally I would have worn my brown clogs; but these Keen clogs are extremely comfortable. It was at this point that I noticed I had chosen my new KEEN Charleston clogs over my old faithful Cole Haan's. They are extremely comfortable and they have wonderful arch support.This is normally where shoes are left at the front door. But my Keen's went with me past the front door.I seriously did not need my slippers to relax in the Salesman's recliner. And these rugged, good lookin' clogs are lightweight too! I'm mighty keen on my KEEN's.How about you? Do you have a pair of shoes you are keen about? Or do you partcipate in bloggy giveaways?
