RYKA: Good For Your Sole


Remember RYKA? We’re still glowing from the amazing head-to-toe outfit giveaway they held with Your Heart Out a few months back. But as of late, they’ve outdone themselves.

Prepare for your mind to be blown: Starting tomorrow (September 5) through October 17, RYKA will be giving away 50 pairs of shoes and 50 performance tees EACH and EVERY single day. Yes, that’s 50 shoes and 50 tees every day. We couldn’t believe it either. But it turns out that when it comes to RYKA, some things aren’t too good to be true.

Here’s how it works: Click on the “Good For Your Sole” link on the RYKA website (not til tomorrow, remember) and register to win. Then, tell your friends. For every friend that registers per your reference, your name will be put in the pot an extra time. Need additional feel-good incentive? For every item you win, RYKA will match it and donate to the Women’s Sports Foundation which will distribute them to health and fitness organizations across the country.

{Get Your Kicks:} Doorprize! To get things moving once again (this includes our bodies, in the spirit of good health) RYKA has kindly offered to award three Your Heart Out readers with a new pair of shoes! If you want to be the proud owner of the Lotus, MC2 Run, or MC2 Walk, leave just one comment on this post by 10 p.m. on Monday, September 10.

And don’t forget to stop by the RYKA site starting Sept. 5!

  7. dj Says:

    ooo wow! I totally need these shoes… it’s easier to get motivated to run when you’ve got pretty new kicks :-)

  8. Aubrey Says:

    You’re right, this IS too good to be true. My goal for September, courtesy self.com, is to get toned, so new shoes would help kick my butt in gear. Or at least give me some extra incentive to get moving and stop eating milkshakes all the time. And if I don’t win them here, at least I have 50 chances starting tomorrow. Thanks for the awesome giveaways!
