Kickers Review and Giveaway


I'm always excited to try out shoe brands that are new to me, so I was tickled when the lovely folks at Kickers contacted me about a collaboration. This company was launched in 1970 in France, and has had several surges in popularity since then, many of them spurred on by by celebrity fans. Today, they offer a fabulous selection of boots, shoes, and sandals for both men and women.

I was sent this pair of Lilou gladiator sandals to review and keep.*



Reasons I love these sandals:

  • They are red.
  • They are slightly iridescent.
  • They are fabulously comfortable.
  • They have decorative dangly bits.

This pair of gladiators doesn't have much in the way of arch support, though there is a very small heel and the sole is extremely flexible. The leather is supple and resilient, so the thin straps are quite flexible and never dig. They're a great casual, slightly boho option for summer wear.

I've got another pair of Kickers Lilou sandals to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Be a U.S. or Canadian resident.
  2. Visit Kickers to check out the gorgeous selection.
  3. Like Kickers on Facebook. You MUST do this to qualify for entry.
  4. Leave a comment on this post telling us if you'd pick the Lilous in red, black, or white if you won, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified. (Best policy: note your e-mail like this: sally [at] alreadypretty [dot] com)
  5. Cross your fingers!

Stella Says Go Review and Giveaway



We all know about the big online shoe outlets, and they're fabulous resources. But sometimes a smaller site presents such a beautifully curated selection of shoes that you become convinced they're raiding your personal wishlist. Stella Says Go is just such a site.

This vendor stocks some of my personal favorite brands like Antelope, Frye, and Miz Mooz. But they also sell several brands that are new to me, and just as gorgeous as they can be, including Wonders, Bacio 61, and Esska. These shoes are quirky and fun without being outrageous, and many feature walkable heels and wedges. In fact, Stella Says Go allows you to search by three comfort ratings: Overtime, full-time, and part-time. Brilliant!

The kind folks at Stella Says Go sent me this pair of Kork-Ease Deborah sandals to review and keep.*



Now, we all know I'm a Kork-Ease devotee, and I've been eyeing this particular sandal style for at least two years. Now that I have them in my clutches I can say with confidence that they are every bit as comfy and chic as my other pairs, and considerably more versatile. The footbed is soft, the straps are supple, and the heel stable. These are fabulous everyday sandals.

I'm delighted to have a $100 gift card to Stella Says Go to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Be a U.S. resident.
  2. Visit Stella Says Go to check out the gorgeous selection.
  3. Like Stella Says Go on Facebook. You MUST do this to qualify for entry.
  4. Be willing to submit a photo of yourself wearing your prize shoes to Stella Says Go once the contest has concluded.
  5. Leave a comment on this post telling us which pair of shoes you'd order if you won the gift card, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified. (Best policy: note your e-mail like this: sally [at] alreadypretty [dot] com)
  6. Cross your fingers!
