Here’s a funny story: I love Rockport shoes and wear them all the time. In fact, I’ve even written about them [My New Favorite Shoes from Rockport] and participated in Rockport media campaigns. The company has perfectly melded the style of dress shoes with the comfort and performance elements of sports shoes. What’s not to love?
Still, when they approached me about helping out with the new DresSports Luxe Collection launch, I had to be candid that while the new shoes were very handsome, the reality is that I never have call to wear dress shoes. In fact, as I write this, I’m wearing a pair of Chaco sandals that are dangling on the ends of my feet.
The shoes themselves are very nice, as you can see in this overview of the DresSports Luxe line:
The pair that caught my eyes, however, were these, the Apron-Toed Oxfords:
But what’s the point of getting a pair of shoes you’ll never wear? (yeah, that by itself demonstrates that I’m a guy once and for all, right? 🙂 Sorry Carrie and your Sex And The City compatriots!)
Instead, it’s your lucky day, dear reader, as Rockport is letting me give away a pair of these terrific new DresSports Luxe shoes to one of you!
Before I tell you the details, here’s a pic that shows the hidden sports shoe lurking inside the DresSports Luxe:
Based on my experience with other Rockport shoes, they’re going to be crazy comfortable, giving your feet a much needed break and offering a far smarter pair of dress shoes for those of you who live with a suit and tie than the fancy Italian designers, whose shoes can often be cripplingly uncomfortable.
Yeah, whatever. So tell me about the giveaway!
Here’s the deal, dear reader: All you need to do is leave a comment on this article telling me whether you’d be more likely to wear a red power tie or a blue executive tie with a dress shirt and suit?
Oops, you missed the window and many congrats to Robin S. for winning a new pair of Rockport shoes!
So tell me: red tie, or blue tie?
And good luck!
