REVIEW: Shwings (& GIVEAWAY)

I was first introduced to Shwings when they teamed up with Sparkle Athletics (seeing as I love just about EVERYTHING that Team Sparkle does) to make some AMAZING shoe accessories. I mean WHO DOESN'T WANT EXTRA BLING FOR THEIR SHOES?! When I saw the Minnie bows I think I might have squealed because of their CUTENESS!!

I contacted Elliot with Shwings to see if I would be able to get some shweet shoe gear for a review and giveaway - to which is replied OF COURSE! He asked me to go through their current catalog and let him know if I had any preferences. There were soooooo many choices - not just "wings", but also mustaches, hearts, sugar skulls, flames, lightning bolts, butterflies, and even astrology signs! They even have different "attaching" options - the standard laced ones, but also clip-ons (for footwear like sandals) and slots (for shoes with Velcro closures)!


When the package arrived I was STOKED! There were so many awesome options that I received! My favorite were the Reflective Yellow Wings. I mean not only are they bright (which I LOVE), reflective (which keeps me safe), and went with my Brooks PureConnect 2 (AWESOME-SAUCE), but I swear it is like they make me FLY when I am running!

As you can tell, I wear them OFTEN!

I put the Silver Foil Hearts on my tennis shoes (ones I wear around town, but don't run in). Although they don't end up in as many Instagram shots (unless it is for cross-training, like the shots below) as the ones on my running shoes, they do see much of Southern California.


I gave my mom a pair of the Black Sparkle Mustaches for her running shoes. She wore them when she was out here for the San Diego Hot Chocolate 5K and has had them on her shoes ever since.


Okay, so they may not make you run faster, jump higher, or bring home a gold from the Olympics, but they are super fun and do make your shoes look pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC... AND YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO WIN SOME FOR YOUR SHOES!! And not just one chance.... FOUR CHANCES!!
