I was honored to be invited to a pre-opening party at the flagship store, but since Boston is slightly out of the way for me in California, Vibram offered to let me be a part of the festivities by awarding a free pair of Vibrams to one of my readers. I chose the Spyridon LS – if you read my Spyridon LS review , you know why – and I’ll announce the winner next Saturday to coincide with the grand opening in Boston.
I also get to choose my own rules for this contest, so I’m going to be a bit creative here: to win, I want photographic proof of how you use your Vibrams, or how you venture into the world barefoot. And since the winner will be announced on a weekend, I’d love something I can use as a random shot of beauty as well.
So here’s how to enter: send me a photo of yourself in a cool outdoor setting, either in a pair of Vibrams, like this one from a Sentinel Dome hike in my KSO Treks
Or just enjoying the great outdoors barefoot, like this one from a run to the top of Half Dome
Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Vibram contest entry”. My plan is to narrow the entrants down to three or five and post them here, then let readers choose the winner for me. However, this condenses my contest time frame quite a bit, so if you want to enter, please send me a photo ASAP, and I’ll aim to have the finalists posted here by Thursday night.
Obviously, by entering you’re giving me permission to post your name and photo on my website (I’ll also link to your blog if you have one). The winner can be male or female, and will receive a pair of FiveFingers Spyridon LS in whatever size is needed. Good luck to everybody, and special thanks to Vibram for sponsoring this contest!
