This challenge should have been up ages ago, but I was planning a really beautiful banner that would have required me to screencap and it just wasn't getting done. Today I decided that getting on with it is probably more important than my sense of aesthetics, so here we are and let the Fandom Shoe challenge begin immediately.

The timing of this challenge is going to be a little different, mostly to allow participants lots of time for any necessary screencaping. This challenge will run right up until the end of the year; however, for those who aren't interested in Fandom Shoes, I intend to run a mini-challenge concurrently. The first week of December will be Winter Boots week (our Southern hemisphere members are invited to gloat with posts of Summer footwear), which should add a bit of variety to the community.


A reminder of how our challenges work:

-Anyone can participate!
-We post shoe photos in a given theme for a period of time and then vote for our favourite pair.
-You can make multiple posts if you feel so inclined.
- We vote at the end in two categories: the pair we would most like to own/wear, and general awesomeness.

I've worked out the results from our poll by assigning two points for every first choice vote and one point for every second choice vote. The resulting order is...

Crack!Shoes
Fandom Shoes
Show Your Shoes
Steampunk Shoes
Space Shoes

...after that we will move into a series of challenges based to type of shoe (boots, trainers, flats, etc.)

So without further ado...



Shoes designed by people who were clearly on crack!

The Multi-Colour Challenge is now closed for submissions. Thank you to all our contributers! Voting is open.

The winners of the Gray/Grey Challenge were the Mexicana Cowboy Boot in the category of most want to wear/own, and the Yves Saint Laurent "Palais Passementerie" for general awesomeness.

That brings us to the end of our Colour Challenges. Members are invited to post any shoes that strike their fancy between now and the end of July. I will have a new round of challenges ready to go in August.

Now is the time for all those shoes that have more than one dominant colour in their design. Originally I was going to run this challenge for a full two weeks, but I think there will be a lot of submissions for this one and I don't want to end up with far too many options when it comes to voting. It's hard enough as it is.

How it works:

-Anyone can participate!
-We post shoe photos in a given theme for one week and then vote for our favourite pair.
-You can make multiple posts if you feel so inclined.
- We vote at the end in two categories: the pair we would most like to own/wear, and general awesomeness.

I wish we didn't have gray/grey* following directly on the metallics, but we are out of other colours! The colour challenge will wrap up in July with a two week extravaganza of multi-coloured shoes. While I am sure I could happily fill an entire month with rainbow and pattern shoes, coding that poll would be a nightmare so two weeks is the limit. ;)

I don't know about the rest of you, but I've really enjoyed the colour challenge. I think challenges are a great way to encourage group participation, and more participation from our members results in a greater variety of shoes for us to look at!

Right now the plan for this community is to go free-style for the remainder of July, and then I will start a new series of challenges in August. I have lots of ideas for future challenges including the fandom shoe challenge (screencaps of shoes worn by your favourite tv and film characters), the crack!shoe challenge (shoes designed by people who are obviously on crack!), and the show us your shoes challenge (for sharing the shoes that we actually own and wear)... I intend to put up a community feedback post for other suggestions sometime before the end of July, but comments are also welcome here and now if anyone has any immediate feedback on how this community has been going thus far.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I was enjoying the colour challenge, so without further ado...The Colour Challenge Returns!

-Anyone can participate!

Thanks to everybody for their participation!

So, [personal profile] jest had this fab idea regarding livening up this community a bit more. I hope more of you guys will join in and post as all kinds of shoes and styles are always welcome :)



So, the idea is basically that each week we could kick off with a colour (all theme suggestions are welcome) and everybody would post pictures of shoes in that colour, and then at the end of the week we could vote on the most gorgeous pair




I love that idea! :D So I was thinking that next week we start Monday with the color purple as it seems to be very popular designer-wise at the moment. So, ladies and gentlemen - start saving up those purple shoe pictures and get ready to post next week \0/

And as always, all and any opinions are welcome. Also, if anyone has any suggestions for shoe websites, please do share. I've gotten stuck on using my favourites:
