Wanna Write Reviews? For Shoes?

Here’s a cool charitable opportunity, should you have a serious hankering to tell the world about your favorite pair of shoes. I have to ask what my favorite pair might be… probably Danskos. I’d give up a lot of things, including breakfast and that magic yogurt I love, to spend every day in Danskos. But then, my feet are lesbians. They only tolerate comfortable shoes.

However, I can totally write a review that will fund a charity.

So, how does reviewing shoes translate to charitable work? Read on.

Attention all shoe lovers, critics and writers: Soles4Souls, the international shoe charity, needs YOUR help!  Just 3 minutes of your time will equal 3 pairs of shoes for kids in need.

How is this possible? Our friends at Epinions.com are always on the lookout for simple, well-written reviews on products from toasters to cars.  Shoe reviews make their website better and gives honest feedback to consumers looking to buy their next pair of sneakers, work boots, fashionable pumps and comfy flip-flops.

Epinions is looking for anyone to write a paragraph or two on your favorite (or least favorite) pair of shoes in your closet.  As an incentive, they will donate $5 for EACH REVIEW to Soles4Souls. That equals about 3 pairs of shoes for 3 minutes of work!

To get started, visit www.epinions.com/shoes and sign up to become a member (it’s fast and free).  Then write some reviews about your pairs of shoes (and if it’s a bad review, you can always donate them to Soles4Souls).  But please, don’t wait too long – this promotion will end on December 31st. So break out your critiquing skills and start writing…some bare soles will thank you for it.

Remember, 3 Minutes = 3 Pairs.

If you have any questions about this promotion, please visit www.giveshoes.org for details.

    I LOOOOOOVE my Danskos. SO glad that I am not the only one. I have two pairs of regular danskos, and two pairs of riding boots. I got the regular pairs super cheap when the tack store (riding supplies and such) put them on clearance after Dansko decided not to make riding boots anymore (talk about biting the hand that feeds you… that used to be all the company made, and then horse people wanted real shoes, they made them, became popular, and dumped the people that supported them from the start). But either way I got a pair of clogs and a pair of flat loafers for a total of $50.

    Finally, I was lost and now I am found.  My feet are lesbians too!! I just never had a name for it.  My most recent lesbian foot experience was last week, when walking thru the mall in high heeled boots, I actually had to stop at The Walking Company and buy a pair of shoes. That is how bad my feet hurt.  I bought a pair of Earth shoes, yes the original Earth shoes of the 1970’s.  They are awesome in their comfort and yet not horrid in appearance, I have to say.

    My feet are lesbians, too! I have a pair of Danskos, but I’m too much of a klutz to wear them – I keep landing on the edge of the heel and then my feet twist out from under me. I love Born… they’re not hideous anymore!
