Have you ever thought you could design better shoes than the ones you find in stores? Do you ever sit around and daydream about creating your perfect pair? Well, now is your chance! Milk & honey, a company that allows women everywhere to design their own shoes online, is holding a contest to launch a new group buying program called Shoes or Lose.
All you have to do is visit the milk & honey design page, design shoes you love, then post them to milk & honey’s Facebook page. You have until August 5th to post as many designs as you want. A panel of fashion experts will select the top five designs. After that, you get to vote for the winning design, which will be featured in the "Shoes or Lose" program for the world to buy (including your friends & family!) at 20% off. You’ll get a pair of shoes for free, eternal bragging rights and maybe even launch a new career!
Go classic, go crazy, go design! It’s the ultimate shoe-ocracy.
