Chocolate Shoe Winners Announced


Thank you for leaving your footprint on the SOLE SISTERS project.

Our shoe vault overflowed with your stories, some funny, others sad, provocative and sexy.  Women talked about shoes relating to their Moms, Dads, Grandmoms, Lovers, Husbands, Daughters and Friends.  You walked us through those first shoes, prom shoes, wedding shoes, sexy shoes, lucky shoes, ones  that took you through good and bad times,  and even the shoes that you wanted to be buried in.  Every story was a testament to how much we identify with our shoes.

As much as we would have liked to have picked everyone (and let me tell you they all were terrific), the judges finally selected winners.  Please read to the end of this emailer.
