Boots That Burn
(calories that is)
So, if you know me, even a bit — you know that THESE are my boots
They’re comfortable, super seriously comfortable and they’re cute.
You also know that if I’m not wearing those boots, I’m wearing these (or the brown ones)
My feet must be comfortable and cute is a nice bonus.
I remember meeting Leah at Blissdom last year and three things about her really stood out, her personality, her smile and her hawt. red. boots.
Leah praised these boots, raved about them and their special incline that puts the toes above the heels thus causing you to burn more calories and tone your muscles while you wear them.
You better believe she had my attention. Muscle toning shoes that don’t make you look as if you’re walking on bubbles — yes, please.
When Leah asked me later, if I would like to review a pair and give a pair away, it was an easy yes.
When the box with my boots arrived last week, I must admit, it wasn’t love at first sight.
Remember my boots and flip flops from above — I like cute and girly
These were a bit more bad-ass motorcycle chick looking.
They are nothing I would have ever picked out for myself, however — I kinda dug feeling like a kick-butt chick with them on.
Nathan gave them two thumbs up.
I put them on and wore them around the house while cleaning (we have hard floors — if I’m not wearing shoes in the house at all times, my feet hurt).
After about 5 minutes, my legs felt weird — yep, there’s that incline thing working.
Saturday was cold and drizzly and I had to coach two soccer games. Usually, after 5 minutes on the soccer fields my toes are soaking wet and freezing and my feet are miserable.
I decided to put my new Earth Boots on and I wore them – from 7:45 AM to 1:00 PM– my feet stayed dry, the soft inner lining kept my calves warm and I had no problem keeping up with my team of 6, 7 and 8 year old kids. The boots flexed and moved really easily with me.
I’ve only worn them a few times but, I can tell you this: I can feel it when I wear them and I’m walking a lot, they look really good with my jeans and I totally feel kick butt when I wear them 🙂
The generous people at Earth Footwear and Mamavation have given one of my readers the opportunity to win the same pair of Acclaim boots that I received!!! That’s a $189 value!

*** This Contest is Now Closed***
Thank you to everyone who entered!!! 192 entries!
I love the pride boots 🙂
I love the Urban and the Acclaim boots. How exciting! What a cool giveaway! I LOVE boots. I always feel like I can take on the world and kick serious butt when I wear my cowboy boots.
http://twitter.com/TexasRhea/status/4971722814005248 I tweeted it!!
I’m a big fan of Earth shoes, and would really love to win some boots!
I love both the Acclaim and the Hype boots.
I actually really love the Acclaim boots. They remind me of a pair of J.Crew boots I had years ago that I loved. I “outgrew” them after having kids.
I like the hype 🙂
Already ‘like’ them on FB … but added a note to their wall!
Aaaand, Facebooked. Thanks for the contest!!
I really like the Acclaim ones too and the Ldge ones look so warm and cozy!
I retweeted AND commented on their site on FB (and Liked them) too.
Oh yeah, I forgot the links. Sigh. Being blond has it’s drawbacks:
FB: AndreAnna McLean: Came from A Southern Fairytale cause that chick CAN cook and if she says her feet are comfy in your shoes, than I believe her!
I’ll admit I’m not usually a big boots person. But those acclaims DO look pretty B.A. I like that they have vegan options, too, even though I’m not vegan.
And the tweet!! All THREE BABY!
(P.S. the fact that they have these boots in my size alone – an 11 – makes me covet them even more for catering to us Yeti-eqsue folk!)
I like the invent & diva boots. Really cute!
I love the Diva boots, cute and fluffy. LOL
I am with AndreAnna on the size thing. I wear an 11 as well and when I see boots somewhere in my size I will pay full price. 🙂
Oooh, mama! The Invent in Iron Grey Suede would allow me to re-INVENT myself through the coming Adirondack winter.
Le tweet for le feet. http://twitter.com/AmandaMagee/status/4983430601252864
Love the Diva boots, the Acclaim boots and the plaid Pride boots. Great giveaway!
I love the swank boots. I am currently in the middle of my year without pants and good boots are hard to find and also things are tight and so I am trying to spend as little as possible but I think these are going on my wish list for christmas. They are cute and would look good with skirts. (as would the pair that you are giving away)
good luck to everyone!!
i like the invent ones!
I think I’d like to enter this contest but I
dont really understand the instructions. And I have never used twitter. Can I still be a candidate?
Love the Lodge 2, and the acclaim boots.
I like Earth on Facebook, and added a note on their wall 🙂 great giveaway!!
I liked the Swank boots they look comfortable to me.
I liked Earth Footwear on Facebook and told them on their wall that A Southern Fairytale sent me. 😉
I like the Acclaim the best! Or the Hype. Tough choice.
I came via Amanda Magee’s tweet! It’s working. 🙂
I dig a lot of the boots so I called over my nine-year-old fashionista and she told me Acclaim. For definitely reals.
Oh girl, so awesome. I also LOVE the Swank. So, um, swanky.
I’m back! I did the facebook thing too!
oh yes I did…
I like the Lodge 2 Boots.
Dude. DUDE. I was just drooling over the acclaim boots the other day. And then weeping when I looked at my meager budget.

My favorite is either the Acclain or the Swank, I can’t decide.
I love the HYPE women boots! SO CUTE!
I’m all about comfort especially when it looks good too!
I happen to love the Acclaim boots! But I also love the Hype and Diva boots too.

I like the Lodge 2 Boot. How fun, yet practical at the same time. Looks like they have some really nice quality stuff. Thanks for the link!
The Swank in grey is my favorite
I really liked the initiate boots, they looked very warm and comfortable.

Oh man, my mom has been wearing Earth Shoes FOREVER and she swears by them! Hope I win… would love a pair of the Hype boots!!
I love all the boots but the Lodge 2 are so comfy looking with all that FUR! Thanks for sharing the site!
Visited the Earth Footwear FB…told them you sent me….!
The Hype boots are really cute…so are your legs more toned now? Do they cause leg cramps? (that is what I would think they would do…) just curious.
Hey Rhonda, I never had any cramps while wearing them. 😉 I could *feel* my muscles but, it was in no way painful. I was just — aware. 🙂
I really like the Acclaim and the Swank boots. Very cute!
I just became of fan of Earth Footwear on Facebook and told them you sent me! 🙂

I like the ones that you have…the Acclaims. I like to look kick butt, too!
My favorite boots were the Hype (in black), but I also like the Acclaim…would look pretty fun on this “mature” lady!! My grand kids would think I was quite trendy!
I “liked” Earth Footwear Boots” on Facebook. That should double my chances, huh?
I love the Acclaim boots!
Hey Sister, I like that kick butt look! They look really cute on you. Thanks for the site, hope it’s my lucky turn!!!
My tweet! Finally!
I love the Urban!
I’m not entering the contest, but I wanted to tell you that I think those boots TOTALLY FIT YOU! I know they’re not your usual style, but I think that picture shows us a totally different Rachel: the kick-ass, take names Rachel! Earth is one of my favorite footwear companies, and it’s so cool they’re giving one of your readers a pair.
Hope your new boots are making you feel as lovely as you are 🙂
I like the Hype pair. Thanks!
I think either the Swank or the Elite and I would get them in black. 🙂
Mama needs some new shoes. I like the Swank boots.
I like the Hype boots! Thanks for the giveaway!
“Liked” Earth Boots on FB!
I like the Diva boots in black. I love the fact that can wear them short and furry or have tall boots for snow.
I love the Bark Leather Acclaim boots. I haven’t jumped into the fitness shoe fad yet because I’ve hated the styles. LOVE these.
Great giveaway 🙂
Love the Black Acclaim boots! These are so cute and if they help you in another way then that’s just an added plus!!
I loved the peak boots. Thanks
I’ve been coveting the black Acclaim boots since they came out! Love ’em. Bought my first pair of Earth shoes this fall and am seriously ready to ditch all my other shoes.
Liked Earth Footwear on Facebook and am officially in love with the inner peace boots!
I’m totally diggin the black acclaims like you got. I can see myself kickin butt in those 🙂

Love, love, love the Acclaim Boots. They looked warm and cozy.
Clicked LIKE on FB and told them that A Southern Fairytale sent me.
I do covet those boots so. Not that I don’t have my own beloved f-me boots, but not like THAT.
I also am going to have to get some cowboy boots before they kick me out of Texas, eh?
I like the acclaim and the hype boots in brown.
I’ve been wanting to try Earth Footwear – I love the Acclaim boots you received!

My favorite pair of boots are the “Women’s – Lodge 2” — they are so cute for winter, I love the fur! Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
I liked them on Facebook and wrote that you sent me! I’m “Breakfast at Saks” on Facebook 🙂
I like the acclaims… (’cause I like bad ass biker chick, duh)… but I gotta admit… I like the swanks too since they can be slouched as needed… oh! and the diva ones… well… because they’re called “diva”… and “go get mom’s diva boots” sounds a whole lot better than the current “go get mom’s whore boots”, don’t you think? 🙂
P.S. Ellipses mean I love you…
P.S.S. I think that the freckles on your feet are adorable… which is odd since I hate the ones on mine.
P.S.S.S I liked ’em on facebook so that this comment wouldn’t totally ruin your entry count
Ooh, I LOVE Earth shoes. I have four pairs – sneakers, sandals & shoes. I like the Initiate boots… and the Lodge 2. Hard to choose!
I liked them on Facebook and said you sent me!
I love the Pride boots!
I loooove the Central boots!
Love the Hype boot!! OMG!! They are too awesome!!
Also liked on Facebook!
Those ones you have are nice, but I was partial to the Elite. I have rubber boot envy for all the moms at preschool.
i love the elite boot in red
Invent because they are cute and because I’m afraid my massive calves wouldn’t fit in any others.
i went to earth footwear on fb & told ’em u sent me (ciaraj13)
I’m commenting because first, you rock. Second, because I am actually a boot guy. I love boots. Yes, I even have a pair of ropers I bought in Tennessee years ago. I use them to… pretend I rope stuff? Anyway…
Can I pretend the Reagans are boots? Because those would really be more appropriate for my office jockey lifestyle.
Oh.My! Love, love shoes, boot, flip flops even slippers=)
I really like the Womens Urban=) Now that’s a serious piece of footwear!
Thanks oodles for a chance at ’em!
here’s the tweet http://twitter.com/Simply_Ciara/statuses/5771086566260736
“Hype” in black, pretty please.
I tweeted it too! (But am not smart enough to know where to find the tweet URL. I did take a screen shot though!)
I love luv lurve the Swank boot!
The Hype are beautiful.
I came looking for potato soup and look what happened! Liked on Facebook and said you sent me. Then I called the boots i like the wrong name. I need a nap but now I must have new boots. Oh yeah, potato soup?
Oh my! I do not deserve new boots due to my being an idiot. My blog is not happymommyblog.bloodspot.com. Arghhh!
Choosing a favorite boot is like asking me which child I love best! If I can only choose one, I like the Central style.
I posted a comment about the Acclaim boots on Earth Footwear!!
I like SWANK in black or gray! But I am SO about comfort when choosing shoes/boots…I’m thrilled to see these are COMFORTABLE!
Ooh , I love the Hype boots!
