Patagonia shoe GIVEAWAY!

Giveaway is closed!

I’m a sucker for all things Patagonia. If I had to choose one clothing brand to be stranded on a desert island with, I’d probably choose Patagonia.

But we’re not talking about their clothes today. We’re talking about Patagonias shoes. I’ve never tried any of their shoes, but they sure have some good looking styles.  And if they’re as awesome as their clothes?  Well… I would willingly be stranded on a desert island with those too.

So, in celebration of Patagonia Advocate Weeks, we’re going to give a pair of shoes away!

What is Patagonia Advocates Week?

It’s an event that starts today. For every pair of Patagonia shoes purchased at from 10/9-10/22, Patagonia will donate $10 to the Conservation Alliance.

What is the Conservation Alliance? 

Their mission is “to engage businesses to fund and partner with organizations to protect wild places for their habitat and recreation values.” They direct their funding to community-based campaigns to protect threatened wild habitat, preferably where outdoor enthusiasts recreate.

How can you win some shoes? 

Leave a comment telling us What is your favorite fall outdoor activity?

Winner get’s to choose a pair of Patagonia shoes from Choose from their women’s, men’s or boot collections.

..and I will be completely jealous of the winner.

Good luck!

  8. Elizabeth Saunders

    My new favorite activity is mountain biking on local trails.

  9. Hiking. Or maybe jumping in leaves. How about hiking WHILE taking breaks to jump in leaves. Throw in some warm apple cider post-hike and I’ll be all smiles!

  10. Playing in the desert now that the weather is cooler!

  11. Carolyn

    My favorite fall activity is crunching in the leaves on a trail! Thanks for the opportunity

  12. Yasmin

    Making Fall foliage crowns and going on fall color/object scavenger hunts with my kiddos. These activities help us get down and truly observe the beauty and changes taking place in the season!

  13. Sarah Lawrence

    My favorite fall activity is taking my new little baby girl out hiking in the changing foliage!

  14. Brittany Lawrence

    My favorite fall activity is camping! We just got back Sunday from a weekend trip here in Indiana to Clifty Falls, and Fall is the best time to hike the trails there!

    Campfires in the crisp fall evenings (regardless of whether we are camping overnight or not)

    Hiking among the fall foliage, hands down. I love it about as much as I love shoes. Fun give away!

  19. I love fall camping! The weather is perfect and the leaves are beautiful. We also have a fall family tradition of building a leaf pile and jumping into it.

  20. Hiking while crunching through leaves, looking at all the different leaf colors & shapes with the kids. Or maybe fall camping. Or maybe fall bonfires. I love them all!

  21. Definitely climbing up Little Cottonwood Canyon, the white granite and gold leaves are awesome!

  22. I love campfires with hot cider and pumpkin donuts! Fall is amazing… and so is Patagonia. Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Camping! No special place just where ever we can setup the tent and have a campfire.

  24. Annita

    I love Fall hiking! The cool, crisp air always invigorates me and my kids.

  25. Walking! Slowly and attending to the sights, sounds, colors, smells of fall. With layers on. And the baby on my back and big boy at my side. Autumn, I have declared my favorite season (until winter comes and I get to ski again!).

  26. Libby

    My favorite fall activity is taking the “trail” on the way home from school with my three children…the colorful leaves, the butterflies and the giant spider webs that line the trail make it a new adventure every day.

  27. Lindsey H.

    Fall favorites include a hot cup of coffee, blanket over the knees, the Adirondack mountain view, crisp cool air and the sun rising. All of this, of course, on the back deck.

  28. I love going to the pumpkin patch with my kids. We always pick one that’s too big and impossible to carve.

  29. Amanda

    Favorite fall activity? That’s a loaded question. Living in southern Arizona, fall is when we finally get outside. The list: dual sport riding, hiking with dogs, camping, Jeeping…..

  63. kdog

    I love fall hikes, and collecting colored leaves with my kiddos. They spent so many years in CA (where fall was just a slightly cooler summer) that they kinda freak out about leaf piles and all the colors.
    PS– Dear Random Number Generator, Oct 16 happens to be my birthday… Just sayin’.
