Fave Shoes Photo Competition


Do you own a favourite pair of shoes or boots?

If so, get snapping!

Send us a photograph of your fave shoes and you could win a copy of “My Favorite Shoes: True Stories from Around the World”…


This book showcases everything from newborns wearing pink Converse to seniors wearing cowboy boots, from Zambia to Massachusetts, from functional to flashy. You will meet shoes (and the people wearing them) that have crossed the globe or just the street, danced all night or provided quiet companionship. 59 true-life stories of the shoes people love and why, brought to you by Robynne Raye.

To qualify for submission, your photo must show the shoes ON your feet...not simply a photo of your shoes collecting dust in the closet.

Please include a little blurb telling us about your fave shoes. For example, where you got the shoes, what they mean to you, anecdotes about them, etc.


“But it’s so hard to Choo(s) just one pair!” whines Infomaniac Bitch Michael Guy


Choose ONE pair, dammit, and email the photo with accompanying blurb to Mistress MJ (email address in Blogger Profile) by Saturday, April 16th.

Get snapping, bitches!

  1. Yes, boots count.

    I'll make an amendment to the post.

  2. Oh boy. One pair? Only one?!

    That's going to take some doing. How about one favourite pair of winter wear and one faourite pair of summer wear?

  3. Off Topic. Does anyone know where Mr Peenee has gone? His blog is no more... :(

    ReplyDelete
  4. TIGERCHANTER: Welcome to Infomaniac!

    I’ve been wondering where Peenee’s blog is too.

    According to my “Google Reader,” he posted within the last 24 hours but when I click on his blog it says, “Blog has been removed.”

    I’ll email him now and try to find out what’s up.

  7. How about a party pair and a woman-about-town pair?

  8. Someone's a bit cranky this morning.

    What's up hon? Pillows unfluffed?

  9. Less chit chat, more shutter snapping!

  10. Shoes... Mmmm... Now let me think...

    In the meantime... any news on the Peenee Front? I popped over to say welcome home only to find the doors locked and the lights turned off...
    Most curious as he looked so lovely standing amid the swathes of flowers....

  11. PRINCESS: No word yet about Peenee’s missing blog.

    And did you know that Roxy has published her last post?

  13. XL: I’ll have you know it’s a “shoe appreciation”…not a “footwear fetish.”

  14. How about the favourite pair of pulling shoes and the shoes to go shopping in?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Peenee's back! I was just at the blog and it seems to have been restored! Halliloo! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I noticed that Roxy has sounded her last post. I guess the busy life caught up with her...
    I will miss her wonderful Hair and photoshopping skills and humour. Will the mistress be requiring a replacement Manicurist... er... Nail Technician?....

    And it is great news that Peenee is back... for real this time...

    I think the landlord just got a bit slow in giving him back his keys...

    Now... Where to I find a shoe starting with the letter C....?

    Read my lips.

    YAY!!!

    Now send me a pic of your shoes.

    I’m at loose ends over Roxy…I’ll get back to you about the Nail Technician’s position.

    As for the “C” shoes, don’t even think about it.

  18. Now are these shoes we own, or shoes that we covet (in general) or shoes we like seeing others wear?

    ReplyDelete
  19. COOKIE: Now are these shoes we own, or shoes that we covet (in general) or shoes we like seeing others wear?

    Shoes that you OWN.

    I shall change the wording from “Do you HAVE a favourite pair of shoes or boots?” to “Do you OWN a favourite pair of shoes or boots?”

  20. I left the ones I want to enter on the Island so you'll get my entry just under the deadline!

  21. *sigh*

    Just one pair of shoes?

    *sigh*

  22. "UH, DO YOU HAVE THESE IN A 10 EEE?"

  23. BOXER: I left the ones I want to enter on the Island so you'll get my entry just under the deadline!

    We’ll be waiting!

    *sigh*


    JUST. ONE. PAIR.

    DAMMIT!

    NORMA: "UH, DO YOU HAVE THESE IN A 10 EEE?"

    Such dainty feet.

    MAGO: Gimme FEET!

    A reminder that it’s time for Mistress MJ’s foot massage.

  24. Sweeties, thanks for all your concern, it was simply the same evil Google Blogger snipiness that laid low Infomanaic earlier. I have no idea why since I have always been a model of propiety.

    As to shoes, just to even out those whining about being restricted to only one pair, I have no Fave Shoes. I look at them as just something to get from the apartment into the taxi, to quote Fran Lebowitz.

  25. @Peenee, sorry to have missed you in New Orleans. I feel strongly that our paths will have the chance to cross once again .

    @MJ, YOU KNOW YOU ARE JUST ASKING FOR A BUNCH OF PICTURES OF CROCS!

    Obviously Blogger discovered your sordid tea room sex scene involving the Barbie Doll cabaret.

    Not to mention the Bacchanlia in the linen closet.

    We would have been inconsolable without you.

    Please observe and obey the No Crocs sign posted on this blog.

    MAGO: ... ach ...

    Hör damit auf!

    Mistress MJ will prepare to be dazzled.

    I’d considered making this a kimono contest but that wouldn’t have been fair to the others.

  29. MAGO: Best worn with Elf Shorts.

    ReplyDelete
  30. No, pink pumps go best with Elf Shorts!

    I am finding it difficult to pick one pair. Can I choose one pair of wedges, one stiletto and one pair of flats?

    Please?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I suppose that I would be blocked and deleted if I provided a pic of one of my many pairs of the C-shoe.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Help me out here MJ, but those C shoes people keep mentioning are Choo's as in Jimmy Choo's right?

  34. Oh, this is going to take some plotting and creativity. I don't really like shoes... do they make socks that look like shoes? Something like those tuxedo t-shirts, which are all class.

    Socks that look like shoes?

    Read THIS but don’t you DARE let me catch you in them.

  36. I now regret donating my sweater boots to charity. And I probably shouldn't mention these at all:
