acorn footwear giveaway

December 17, 2012

Posted by in giveaway


Acorn has always been one of my favorite footwear companies. their slippers, boots and socks are not only incredibly cozy and comfy, but they’re cute and stylish, too! though i have owned several pairs of Acorns over the years, my all time favorite is the crosslander boot and today, i’m beyond excited to offer a pair to one of you lucky readers!


these boots are perfect for keeping your feet warm and comfy this winter. i love that they’re stylish enough to wear out, but comfy enough to wear as a house slipper (and perfect for chilly floors like mine!).  Acorn is also working hard to be as eco-friendly as possible, so i thought you might like a run down of their latest stats (they even offer vegan certified shoes!):

sustainable materials used throughout their collections:

•  organic cotton terry
•  hemp
•  recycled PET polyester
•  TPR outsoles using up to 25% recycled content
•  Policork™ molded insoles made of 70% recycled materials
•  CFC-free PU molded footbeds and recycled content in the outsoles
•  CFC-FREE PU molded footbeds
•  ISA Leathers

giveaway from acorn

this winter, Acorn is also working hard to make a difference for children across the country. throughout the month of december, Acorn will donate one dollar to the boys & girls clubs of america for every pair of Acorn slippers and shoes sold in-store and online as part of its ‘love to grow on’ campaign! the funds raised through Acorn’s campaign will support the boys & girls clubs of america programs that promote academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.

about the crosslander boots. these boots have a soft, water-repellent outside and are fully lined with soft sherpa fleece on the inside for warmth and durability. the footbed has a contoured, removable eva insole with anatomic arch support and a rubber outsole with hand-pressed natural jute for a great non-slip traction.
