Delicate Soles and a Giveaway

I was given the amazing opportunity to review a pair of wonderfully genius shoes! The company in question is called Delicate Soles and they seem to have thought of everything a girl can ask for in a pair of flats. Their mantra is:


Like most girls, I love high heels but I hate having to wear them at the end of a long day (or night!). Delicate soles took this into account and created these fabulous rollable shoes that are an "ultra-portable, ultra-fashionable solution to high heel agony". 

Check these babies out:




So what do you get with these adorable rollable flats? Well here it is:

 

For the life of me I can't believe no one thought of this sooner! I had my oh-so-cute silver pair with me on our trip to Portland and after a long day of shopping, I put my achy feet in these rollable flats and chilled out. The were also great to have in the hotel room when you don't want to walk around barefoot on their carpet and don't have flipflops with you! While I love having big handbags, I hate how heavy they can get with all the stuff I end up putting in there. Delicate Soles weigh almost nothing so don't contribute to shoulder pain! 

Even more impressive is that this new company gives a portion of all its sales of the rollable shoes to a charity called Share Your Soles which provides shoes to children in impoverished countries. Now you gotta love that!

The best part? Delicate Soles has been generous enough to offer a pair of these ultra-cute shoes to TWO fabulous Chocolate Lover's Confessions readers!!! 

Here's how to enter to win a pair:
  1. Visit Delicate Soles and come back here to leave me a comment letting me know which pair is your favorite and how you would use these great rollable shoes!
  2. Be A Chocolate Lover's Confessions follower for a second entry (new followers welcome), and let me know how you follow in a separate comment. Also make sure that I have a way to contact you. 
  3. For a third entry, post about this giveaway on your blog with a link back to this post and again, let me know in a separate comment.
  4. For a forth entry, become a twitter follower and post about the giveaway with this line: "Enter to win a pair of DelicateSoles from @Cocoaconfession http://tinyurl.com/y3mekgj"
Note: Please leave a separate comment for each entry (each person can have 4 entries in total). 

I will be using random.org to select a winner. The giveaway will remain open all the way through to Monday 26th April at midnight PST. I will announce the winners soon after. Don't forget to make sure that I have a way to contact you!

Good luck everyone!

These shoes sound amazing, and the charity sounds even more awesome! I would definitely go for the starlight silver flats! I’d bring them to the wedding to switch into if my heels got uncomfortable. Silver is one of our colors, so they would definitely work!

OH LORDY! Silver...I'd rock those silver babies up and down San Fran for our honeymoon week! And then I'm pretty sure I'd rock em at work. AND I rock 'em around town for errand running. OH and to go out in.

Freaking cute.

Great give away! I like the pixie dust pair, although the onyx or silver would probably go with everything. I work on a college campus and my co-workers tease me because I always come in with flip flops on and pull my "work appropriate" shoes out of my purse. These would be great because they barely take up any room at all!

Such a great giveaway! I love the lipstick red. Red is my favorite color, even though it's not one of our wedding colors.

I would use them for commuting to and from work on the bus before I stuffed my feet into my towering Stuart Weitzman pointy-toe pumps!

Giovanna said...

omg, these shoes were meant for me. every pair of shoe i have gives me blisters and kills my arches. i wear heels anyway, and sometimes i carry flip flops in the summer, but i have to shove them in my purse and they're obviously not dressy. these things are adorable...i love silver and red.

Giovanna said...

i'm a follower, of course. :)

Holly said...

OK, I already said I want silver and I want to wear them after a long day of carting kids around...I usually wear heels during the day...so my feet need comfort!

I agree, why didn't we think of this sooner!! Not only would these be fantastic after a long day celebrating our wedding BUT the roll up style is perfect for me to stick into my purse after a long day of work in the city and don't feel like wearing heels! I'm in love with Starlight Silver =)

CupcakeCaliBride said...

Lipstick Red is my favorite - I'm a big fan of red shoes. Plus I think my wedding shoes will be red, so it makes perfect sense that if I need to slip off my heels for flats, that they be the same color!

It's awesome that portion of the sales go to a charity. :-) Pixie Dust is definitely my favorite! I would slip these on once my feet starts hurting from getting my groove on the dance floor! I loooove to dance so I know it will happen. I'm also thinking about purchasing a few for my bridemaids. It will be a great gift! Thanks for a great giveaway!
