Sharing Saturday - Sparkle Athletic Shwings

I can't believe how quickly the Dumbo Double Dare weekend is sneaking up on us. (Um, so I have some costume ideas but I REALLY need to start working on them! Like NOW!)

For those of you not inundated in the runDisney world, the Dumbo Double Dare is a challenge where you run the Disneyland 10K on Saturday morning and the Disneyland Half Marathon on Sunday morning (and OBVIOUSLY get extra bling for completing the full challenge).

The 2012 Disneyland Half Marathon was my first half marathon (and one of my first races in general), so it holds a special place in my heart. I returned in 2013 for the inaugural Dumbo Double Dare (the 10K was all about fun and character stops and the half I ran with the hubby since it was his first half marathon). And again in 2014 for the Dumbo Double Dare (I ran the 10K with a friend {YAY for coordinating costumes} and the half marathon was a sweaty mess, but at least I made the official runDisney video).

Obviously you know I've gotta keep the trend going, right?! So we will be heading to Anaheim again at the beginning of September to FLY through the parks and around town!

With that being said, I thought it would be the PERFECT time for this next Sharing Saturday giveaway!

When I think of runDisney, a few things come to mind: smiles, friends, and SPARKLE! For me, Sparkle Athletic is a MUST HAVE for my running attire (it works great with costumes or just as a way to jazz up "normal" gear).

Although I can't bear to part with any of my skirts (#SorryNOTSorry), I do have a couple pairs of Sparkle Athletic Shwings that I haven't put on shoes yet. (Can I tell you how much I LOVE that Sparkle Athletic teamed up with Shwings?! It is AWESOME when two of your fave companies get together to make pure pixie dust!)

SparkleAthleticShwingsGIVEAWAY

If you haven't seen Shwings before, you are missing out (and you probably don't follow me on Instagram since I love me my #Shoefies). Shoe + Wings = SWHINGS (But they have many other designs than just wings and when they teamed up with Sparkle Athletic they branched into some Disney magic!)

Just a few of the MANY pictures of my accessorized shoes ;)

There is a pair of Silver Metallic Sparkle Athletic Shwings and a pair of Red With White Polka Dot Bow Sparkle Athletic Shwings up for grabs. I figured I would put the two pairs of Shwings in two separate Rafflecopters, that way you are sure to get the set you want. One winner selected for each pair. You CAN enter both giveaways (and if the same person wins them both, then they are just a lucky duck and I can save on shipping :))!

Shwings! I've just about got 1 pair per pair of shoes...only a few more to go!! :P

Shwings really are the best way to add some personality to a pair of shoes! I love my neon green wings!

My current shoe accessory game is very poor (aka non existent) I hope I win so I can change that!

Dot said...

Yeeeaah, I actually never thought to accessorize my shoes since I'm a simple kind of gal (granted I'm decked out with my watch and belt/hydration deal). I've always been tempted by shwings, and maybe it's time for me to mix things up!

Shelby Giancaspro said...

I LOVE wearing shwings! Sometimes it really gives you that extra boost when you're stuck in a tough run. Just looking down to see the wings makes me smile and the polka dot bows make me giddy for my next trip to Disneyland, aka Dumbo Double Dare!! It's also the new running joke (no pun intended) at my running club when they see me wearing a new pair of shwings. :)

Jennifer Powell said...

Right now I have 3 pairs of shoes, two with traditional laces. The newer pair is completely unadorned (so having a set of Schwings would be amazing!), while the older pair has BeeCause shoe charms to commemorate different milestones. I'm actually considering eliminating the easy no lace laces on my Hokas so I can bling them up, too!

Rhett said...

Don't have a lot of shoe bling, but I think these might be perfect for my girlfriend. Very cool idea.

Kaella Carr said...

I've never jazzed up my shoes before! The red and white would be cute for a future Disney race costume! (I would love to run tinkerbell next year!!)

Tayna said...

I don't have anything to accessorize my shoes yet! I love shwings though!

Jazmin Duarte said...

I only own one pair of Shwings, so I put those on my shoes. But I'd love to accessorize all my running shoes with shwings!

Christina Cookson said...

Disneyland Half 2014 was my first half. Hard to believe I've been running for over a year. Doing Dumbo this time around (first challenge and 4th half) and I just finalized my costumes last week. So excited to wear my first outfit from RaceJunkie and pay tribute to a certain spooky house that holds a certain place in my heart.

VK said...

Maybe schwings will make me faster!

With charms

Carleeh said...

I just recently accessorized my shoes for the first time, with hot pink laces when I became a Sweat Pink Ambassador. I have had schwings on my runner wish list for quite some time. I never felt like a good enough runner to wear them. Now with 2 half marathon's under my shoes I do feel ready!!!

Leah Jones said...

I used to think Schwings were weird, but seeing them all over Instagram has made them grow on me. Now I think they're SO FUN! And no one in my area has them so I would be super unique :)

Walt andMonica said...

I have one pair of Schwings - so that is my only shoe accessory. I obviously need MORE! Thanks for hosting this giveaway, Carlee. ~DisneyBride

Cheri Keith said...

I usually just pick cute laces to add more spice to my shoes, but I would love to try accessorizing with my first pair of Shwings just in time for the Disneyland Half!

I love bows! I think every pair of shoes I have has a bow of some sort.
