patagonia bandha scuff shoe brown

UPDATE: IT’S OFFICIAL, CONGRATS TO RYAN M. OUR OFFICIAL WINNER. THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR PARTICIPATING.

One lucky girl or guy will get to select their favorite style (either men’s or women’s) and color in their shoe size. Hey, if the shoe fits, wear it.

Planet Shoes was gracious enough to provide me with a pair of these fabulous Patagonia Bandha Scuffs. Summer’s coming on fast, enter for a chance to score a pair of cool slides!

I really like these stylish sandal/ flats — they’re both elegant and casual. Versatile enough to traverse from a poolside cabana to brunch or a barbecue bash. Winner has their choice of either black or dried vanilla, (photos, above). Retail value: $100 + free shipping.

The stylish full-grain leather upper features medial gore for flexibility, and the glove-like pigskin lining and latex foam footbed provide superior comfort and support. Other shoe details of the Patagonia Bandha Scuff include Patagonia® Air Cushion technology in the heel, a steel shank for underfoot stability and proper flex in the forefoot, and a recycled synthetic leather sole with a 20%-recycled rubber heel and forefoot pads for added cushioning and traction. Check out what Planet Shoes has in store for Earth Month.

hemp_loafer.jpgWe also received a pair of Patagonia’s NAKED MAUI MOC FOR MEN (in Sable Brown, as pictured here) from Planet Shoes.

These vegan, hemp loafers are now my hub’s favorite casual footwear choice. They look great with jeans, khakis or shorts. Comfortable, stylish, durable and super lightweight, these babies have also gotten me some nice compliments. The shoe’s uppers are made from eco-friendly, sustainable hemp and look even better than the photos.

The Maui Mocs also feature a partially recycled EVA footbed (with sporty stripes) and midsole, and an abrasion-resistant EVA outsole that is very, very lightweight.

Winner gets to choose fav color, 6 options, (retail value $85) @ planetshoes.com
