Sofft Shoes Giveaway! Win Any Pair Up To $150 In Value!!


A while back, I discovered an awesome website called BarkingDogShoes.com. The site was created by a woman named Kirsten who was diagnosed 11 years ago with Rheumatoid Arthritis. She writes, "This disease was not kind to my feet and quickly destroyed bone and cartilage requiring surgery. At the time I was a middle school Spanish teacher--there was no sitting down on that job! All my shoes felt too tight and pinched my toes. I had to find some new shoes but had no clue where to start...my goal with BarkingDogShoes.com is to help women find a shoe that not only looks good but feels good."

Kirsten often promotes Sofft shoes and, now that I've cultivated an online "family" (mostly women suffering from some form of arthritis), I know these shoes are the real deal. From what I hear, they're great-looking, comfortable, and a Godsend to women living with chronic pain. I've never owned them myself, but I've had my eye on some adorable summer styles.

I'm BEYOND excited to announce today's exclusive giveaway! 

Sofft shoes has generously offered a FREE PAIR OF SHOES to one lucky reader of Loving With Chronic Illness! The winner will be able choose any pair of shoes up to $150.00 in valueAnd it's easier than ever to enter! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post with a link to your favorite Sofft shoe style and tell me where you'd wear them if you win! Remember, the winner will be selected through an online randomizer to make it completely fair.

The majority of Sofft shoes fall under the $150.00 mark and I know all of the Spring 2011 styles are fair game. This giveaway will end at 11:59pm EST on June 1. Good luck, my lovely readers! 

Love,
Maya

  3. Man, I haven't been able to find a pair of heels or 'fancy' shoes that fit me and are comfortable in... well, ever! I'm pretty much stuck with flip flops and sneakers. But these are gorgeous: http://www.sofftshoe.com/Sofft-Rosa-in-Violet-Patent-color! It would be nice to have a pair of somewhat professional/grown-up shoes to wear to work or for presentations or just for going out and having fun!

  8. This is the first summer in a long time that my feet haven't been extremely sore and swollen. I would love to win a pair of the Twine Tan Ristnas. I love wearing sundresses in the summer and a new pair of shoes that aren't bulky, just pretty would be very welcome!

  9. Heels and I don't mix period! Can I pick something else?!

  10. Britta....there are lots of other kinds of shoes on there that don't have heels. You can pick any shoes on the entire website that are $150 or under. Check out the Spring 2011 styles, for example. You'll find there are a lot of sandals, slides, and flats. http://www.sofftshoe.com/spring2011-sandals

  15. All of these shoes are so incredibly cute! I've been looking for some great summer shoes. As of right now the only shoes I have comfortable enough to wear this summer are tennis shoes and a pair of orthotic shoes that aren't very cute! I love these shoes! http://www.sofftshoe.com/Sofft-Riesa-in-Caramelo-color
    I would wear them everywhere all summer long! They're so cute!

  18. Hi Maya!
    I looove Sofft shoes :) I'd choose either the Baler in champagne, or the Baja in Carmel Patent .. decisions decisions, LOL. Where would I wear them? Everywhere!! I am still trying to replace all my shoes, as I had to give away my entire show wardrobe when I was diagnosed (my feet changed size). I have very few shoes I can wear now, but Sofft is one of the few brands I know I can wear.
    Btw I really owe you a return email. Life is beyond crazy right now, but I have kept your last one and will definitely be talking to you soon.
    Love and Light, Melissa
