Win a Pair of Acclaim Boots by

Earth® Footwear

I have worn these boots since I took them out of the box!


Acclaim -- by Earth Footwear

I first heard about Earth® Footwear on Twitter and on mom blogs. (Yes, social media buzz sure works!) I immediately wanted to try this innovative line of footwear:

Each and every pair of Earth® Footwear features a 3.7° incline that helps you strengthen and tone your body with your every step.

Not only was I hooked on the concept of burning more calories with every step, but their shoes and boots look fabulous!

So I was thrilled to test out a pair of boots this winter. Earth Footwear sent me a pair of Acclaim boots in black leather.

I opened the box last week and I have worn them every day since! In our Vancouver rain, the Acclaim boots are fabulous, keeping me dry and safe from slipping with the fantastic grip on the soles.

I even took them with me this weekend when my family and I went to Whistler, a local ski resort. They were perfect for our long walks through the cold, snowy village.

It is amazing to me that I could take a brand new pair of boots and not have any “breaking in” time. In five days. I have walked miles with no discomfort!

The calf is very roomy, so with my skinny cargos and jeans they are a bit loose. But the looser top allows me to wear my other jeans which wouldn’t fit in a tighter boot.

If you find that boots often fit tight for you in the calf, you will find the Acclaim will offer extra room. It is also slightly elasticized behind the adjustable buckle and in the calf, which makes it even more comfortable when walking.

acclaim-boot-earth-footwearThe only downside to these boots for me is the heel which is bit thicker than I would prefer. It makes the boot quite casual but if you are wearing them as an every day boot like I am, the heel is ok. (And I just saw a picture of Gwen Stefani wearing a very similar boot with almost the exact same thick sole and heel!)

    I am always looking for a nice sturdy pair of boots that look good but will hold up to the wet British weather! I can never wear boots that are high like this because I have more ‘shapely’ calfs (as my Grandmother used to call my fat calfs! LOL!) but small feet! These look like they would be PERFECT! By the way I’m entering because I’m going to be at my Mom’s in PA from mid December till end of January – so I DO have a US shipping address next month! Hehehe! These would be perfect to wear during my trip.

    Comfort and look are the two things I always look for in a pair of any shoes. And it’s actually harder to find than it seems. It’s easy to find comfortable shoes that look like they belong on an orthopoedic shelf or good looking shoes that you can’t wear for longer than ten minutes. So when I find shoes that are both comfortable and nice looking, then I’m happy.

  3. Mandy says

    I don’t own a pair of boots at all and with Illinois weather rapidly changing, it would be great to have at least one pair. Plus, they are so cute!!!! The claim that they burn more calories is a plus if it is true but hopefully they aren’t heavy :(

  4. says

    Since Since becoming a mother, comfort is my number 1 priority when it comes to shoes! Although, I still like my shoes to look stylish…and be comfortable! :)

  5. says

    I want a boot that will fit my mongo sized calves! I have the biggest calves and can’t get boots to fit them so then they flop around on my feet and are uncomfortable.

  6. says

    Wow! These are beautiful!
    We are getting ready to move back North ( I know.. crazy right?), but I would Sooo love to have these boots for the winter time.
    Love it!

  7. Lisa B says

    I just went boot shopping this weekend and the choices were overwhelming to say the least. I love these boots and think they would be great for everyday wear.

  8. says

    those boots are AWESOME!!! I would love to say that comfort is the most important thing, but as long as they are cute – I’ll take them! Comfort is a bonus feature :)

  9. says

    I am very picky when it comes to boots, I want something practical but good looking at the same time.
    I want something that I can walk in and it doesn’t matter if they get a little wet or dirty.

  10. Melissa P. says

    I need a good pair of boots that will not only be comfortable but that will keep my feet dry and warm. I am so in need of a pair.

  11. michelle says

    I look for comfort!!! , that’s why I don’t have any boots, except my Uggs that are worn through. These are totally me :)

  12. Christie J says

    I have had surgery on both of my heels so comfort is really important to me but trying to stay fashionable at the same time. I would love to try out these stylish looking boots!

  13. Lana B says

    We went from 70* to 26* in 6 hours time. I am looking for a boot that will keep my feet dry and comfortable no matter what the weather is while still looking stylish! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    ~Lana B~

  14. Rachael VW says

    Definitely comfort and style – I have a hard time finding boots that don’t hurt my feet. These sound so awesome – I would love to win these!

  15. says

    OH! I am on the hunt for a great pair of comfy every day high boots. I only wear skirts and dresses now and I’m cold! I need something for daily style and comfort! Hope I win. Thanks for the chance!

  16. says

    In all footwear, I look for durability and style. In the Pacific NorthWET, shoes have to hold up to some challenging weather six months out of the year, and I want my shoes to last (especially if they are favorites). But of course, I want them to look snazzy with skirts to skinny jeans!

  17. says

    Comfort is really important because I have wide, rather messed up feet. But I don’t want to look like a troll either. I want them to look super cute! And these boots are SOOOOOOOOO appealing to me. Please please please???????

  18. says

    `I have a very hard time finding boots that I like. I am very particular with the look and the feel of the boots, I don’t want them to be heavy and bulky. I want them to be soft and easy to break in., I want style and with earthfootwear, I love the thought of being able to exercise while wearing them. Since I have been introduced to earthfootwear earlier this year through “Bookieboo” twitter party, I love them. I have 3 pairs of sandals. and one pair of worn out tennis shoes. Now I need a pair of compfy boots to go with them. Thanks

  19. says

    I’ve had surgery & a metal plate inserted in my left ankle, and also had surgery on my right knee. It’s so difficult to find boots that fit both left & right! These look comfy and adjustable…I need these boots!

  20. Elaine Kontra says

    I look for 4 things in a boot- comfort, arch support, how they fit, and style in that order. First they have to be comfortable so I can go all day w/o wanting to take them off, then I need arch support which goes right along with comfort b/c then if my feet hurt they aren’t comfortable, next how they fit is important b/c I have tried on boots that feel great but are real loose in the ankle and then look funny when being worn. Finally style I would love a pair of boots that look good over or under a pair of jeans. I believe I am picky but a pair of boots should last me a long time and so they need to be perfect for me. Love these boots in black!

  21. Michelle says

    I look for comfort and style. I LOVE Earth shoes! They have really helped me with my back pain too and tell everyone they should get a pair.

  22. jackie says

    With flat feet, and a toddler on the go comfort is an absolute must! But being a younger woman also means wanting style- and these can be dressed up, dressed down, and used for muckin around. Love love love Earth shoes and these boots especially!

  23. mary e. williams says

    I have rheumatoid arthritis, and walking is a challenge at times so I am looking for comfort in a foot wear. I have seen advertisements about earth foot wear, I hope I win so I will get a chance to experience and walk the earth in the earth foot wear with style, Thanks for such a wonderful opportunity!!!

  24. Jaimie K says

    You know, actually… I’ve never owned a pair of boots, so I don’t know what I’d want! These look like they’d be a good pair to start out with!

  25. says

    I live in MN and we have slushy wet weather 6-7 months out of the year. I look for warm, style, and comfort. Something I can easily slip on to chase the dog or my twin 5 year old boys. Sounds like the Acclaim gas it all! LOVE!

  26. says

    I look for boots that are comfy to wear for hours on end! I have a pair of Brown Earth boots that I live in… Now I just need a black pair! :-)

  27. Laney says

    I have been looking for new boots for this winter! I would love some comfortable boots that also have some hidden benefits!

  28. MommaBear says

    Comfort is indeed #1 ! Cuteness comes second, and these seem to do both very well! Love my Earth shoes, but have not tried their boots, and would love to !! Thank you!! :-)

  29. AutumH says

    I look for not only comfort but style and functionality as well in my boots. I would love to own a pair of chic and stylish boots for winter. Thank you for the opportunity.

  30. Luana Johnson says

    Love the look of these boots and they appear to be built for comfort! As the song goes, “these boots are made for walking” and these Acclaim boots fit the bill!!!

  31. says

    Comfort is totally a priority, but warmth and weatherproofing are big ones too! Plus I love the idea of boots I can just slip on whenever — running errands, walking my daughter to the bus etc. Cool contest!!

  32. pamela says

    i’m looking for my SIZE in a nice boot that doesn’t have pointy toes :-/ pointyness makes size 10.5 feet look gigantic…. as if they’re not big enough already right? also, to me, comfort=no heels. i can’t stand heels.. i need something that’s gonna function as well as look super awesome. they look like they’re comfy! would loooooove to win these! totally sweet! i never buy myself anything, it’s all for the kiddos, so this would be a really sweet win!

  33. says

    I definitely look for comfort as well as style. They go hand in hand. I won’t wear a stylish boot unless its comfy (hey, it’ll never get worn). But then, I don’t want to wear ugly boots just because they are comfy (that would be Uggs for me…I know others find them stylish…I disagree…oops, maybe I shouldn’t be saying that). Thanks!

  34. Donna Niell says

    These boots would complete my Earth shoe transition. Every other pair of shoes are Earth and even though they are over 10 years old I’m not replacing them with anything but Earth boots.

  35. says

    I would love to win a pair of these boots! Comfort isn’t just a concern, it is a requirement. I recently wore a tall pair of boots that I found in my closet. They were awful. My feet hurt so bad, I immediately stopped wearing them. I need some boots. I like the chunky heel of these!

  36. says

    I’ve been looking for cute boots that I can wear in all of this Seattle rain (and snow this past weekend!). These are so stylish….Thanks for the giveaway!

  37. Trish says

    Fit is usually an issue for me and that blends right into the comfort of the boot. I love earth shoes and if these boots are anything like the comfort of the causal Earth shoes I already own they will get a thumbs up and be such a blessing.

  38. Christine says

    Those Acclaim boots are gorgeous!!! I love the way they look, I want to tone as I go, and look good doing it.
    Thanks for the chance!

  39. Lylene says

    Comfort first!- definitely. I like a boot to be sturdy, to hit high enough on the calf that my jeans aren’t constantly escaping, and waterproof. Good amount of tread on the bottom- why are so many boots slick on the sole? It’s treacherous!!! Breathability is also really nice and hard to find in a boot. Style is important too- of course, but if they look good but lack everywhere else it is just not worth it for me.

  40. says

    Comfort is definitely important, but I also look for durability. There is nothing worse than buying boots for the winter, only to have them fall apart before the season is over!

  41. Angela says

    Oh and comfort is definitely the most important… so Earth shoes are a perfect solution. Comfort and style all in one!

  42. says

    Comfort is really my top priority. I typically wear Crocs all year long and yes, I live in a very snowy area. I only wear my “clunky” boots if the snow hasn’t been plowed/shoveled yet. Other than that I wear my winter crocs. 😉 These boots look FABULOUS though. I like that they can be worn with regular jeans as well.

  43. N.Rose says

    I am a single mom with very limited income and have a child with special needs … the last thing I do is every buy anything for myself ESPECIALLY the necessities…
    Live in a very rural area which gets snow most of the year….so its hard for me to get around for my child’s therapies….sneakers can be treacherous in ice…. so it would mean alot to me for this opportunity ….thank you…

  44. says

    i look for comfort and style in boots. i also have thick calves so it’s hard to find boots that will fit over them :o/ i’d love to win these cos i know they’d help with all those things :o)

  45. says

    These would be so nice in the MN winter! I gave my daughter my boots since she has to do so much walking at college. Thanks for the chance to win.

  46. Melanie says

    Comfort is the biggest consideration for me. Style is important too, but you are only going to look so good if you feel miserable. Looks like these offer both comfort and style. Would love to try them.

  47. Melanie says

    Comfort is the biggest consideration for me. Style is important too, but you are only going to look so good if you feel miserable. Looks like these offer both comfort and style.

  48. says

    My husband is the only person working in household, with three kids, it’s hard to budget the income. We are saving every little penny for the kids for their education when they start to go to school. So, when, I want to buy something, I always put my kids first on my priority. i got cheap boots but, it’s killing my feet. I wanted to buy at least a decent boots but, I just can’t with our budget.

  49. Margo says

    Earth shoes really help my feet, which are prone to getting sore and over tired in other shoes and boots. So I would love to have a comfortable pair of Earth Acclaim boots for winter.

  50. Susan P. says

    This looks like my kind of boot – more room in the calf and casual. I like a boot/shoe that I can wear a long time and not have to worry about my feet hurting.

  51. Mary says

    I am looking for a boot that looks nice and is comfortable, too! These Acclaim Boots would fit the bill for me! Love the fact that they tone the body, also, and have a lot of stretch hidden in many places. My calfs would appreciate this! Thanks for the chance!

  53. Julie M says

    Comfort is definitely a must with any shoe, boots are no exception. But I really want something cute yet functional. I love this about Earth Footwear. I feel like I am wearing my fave tennies while looking much more stylish.

  54. says

    I’ve been shopping for a cute pair of comfortable boots. I can’t believe how expensive my taste must be because every pair that I like are way out of my budget. I would love to win these!!

  55. Pam K. says

    Since rupturing joints on both of my feet I found that the only shoes I can wear comfortably are Earth shoes. I love them. They are stylish and so comfortable. I’m slowly acquiring a new shoe wardrobe but it’s not cheap. So I would love to win a pair of these boots.

  56. says

    These are FABULOUS!! I look for comfort first, then style when picking out a pair of boots. They have to be comfortable because I wear them forever- I have had my current pair of boots for over 5 years. It’s time for a new pair!! :-)

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  57. Amanda says

    My criteria for boots are, they must be stylish yet still practical. Some of the most trendy boots have 4 inch heels…not practical to wear everyday especially if you are already almost 6 feet tall.

  58. says

    I actually want to win a pair for my mom, who dedicates her time to helping others. She rides trail patrol for her neighborhood, volunteers to keep her street clean and helps run the Challenged Children’s Rodeo here in Norco, CA. She is on her feet (or her horse) all day long and needs a pair of boots that will be comfortable! It would be so awesome to give these to her for Christmas!

  59. Linda Kish says

    Width in the toebox is important. So, fit, I guess. But it also has to be low-heeled and very comfortable. And, of course, look good, too.

  60. Amanda says

    I would love to win these because not only do they look amazing but they are like “shoes with a purpose!” Thank you for the opportunity!

  61. says

    I am looking for a boot that will keep out the water, and still keep a grip on whatever surface I walk. I also have a little trouble wearing alot of boots because they are a little snug in the calf area, so from what you say about these, they will probably fit me perfectly. I would be very happy to win these!

  62. says

    Comfort is definitely a big concern, if your feet hurt you just don’t get as much done! I’ve heard of this 3.7 degree incline… how does it make you feel?

  63. CMC says

    I am looking for a pair of boots that can be stylish AND comfortable at the same time. I know the Acclaim boots can do just that!

  64. says

    I would love to win these boots. I like the fact that they are roomier in the calf since I have thick calfs. I also liked that you stated they were extremely comfortable. I walk alot and am always looking for boots that are not only comfortable but stylish. These fit the bill! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love it when it finally gets to be boot weather. When spring comes around & it’s time to put the boots away for the season, I am always a little sad because I live in boots during the winter! I don’t have any like these, though, and they look super comfy. thanks for the chance to win!

  66. Marlena U. says

    These are awesome! I always have trouble finding boots that will zip all the way up my calf. These just might do the trick!

  67. says

    I’ve never had a pair of boots like these! These look so comfy. And yes, comfort is my main concern with footwear!

  68. says

    Style is important, sure, but since I’m on my feet a lot, comfort is the most important thing. These boots are gorgeous! And if they are half as comfortable as they say, then I’d love them.

  69. Aisling says

    Comfort is my biggest concern for myself and for kids’ shoes too. But that have to look good as well. These Acclaim Boots obviously fit both criteria.

  70. Stephanie V. says

    fighting cancer right now so absolutely comfort is number one right now (would be anyway chasing after a 3 yr old though)

  71. Desiree says

    I look for a combination of warmth/waterproof vs. comfort vs. style when choosing boots. Earth footwear make great shoes because they take all of these into consideration! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  72. tonya says

    These boots are great looking, and are sure to be comfy. Each week I take my child care children on walking field trips. These would be great to have, and I will look great in them. The little girls are crazy for boots and will be envious of me. The design of these boots will certainly help my leg and feet aches since I stand a lot of the time. Thanks for the chance to make my life easier and healthier.

  73. Holly C. says

    I love boots! When I buy boots I look for quality first then comfort. I have that the price is not always an indicater wheather it is a quallity item. I found many shoes and boots that were made really well with a low price tag. and of course there are those that cost a small fortune and fall apart after one season.

  74. says

    Wow, I love those; right up my alley. I just threw away my old cheap pair because they were peeling on the toes (fake leather but they worked.) Oh, and comfort ALWAYS has alot to do with a shoe purchase for me. Yes, style matters, but what’s the point if they are not comfortable. I think it is silly to be in discomfort in order to “look good,” but that’s just me.

  75. Lisa says

    Comfort first, then style. I must say that I dislike wintertime more each year, but if there is one thing i do look forward to, it’s wearing great boots!

  76. Zene says

    Im looking for a pair of boots that are comfortable! every pair Ive bought are horrible and then I never wear em! sad sad sad!

  77. says

    My husband and I were just having a conversation about boots and how I’ve never really had a nice, cute pair. I’ve looked around a bit but haven’t found any I like or that are reasonably priced. These are cute though! And I always go for comfort first then look. 😀

  78. Eileen says

    I look for comfort and warmth…midwest living demands it! AND I like a tiny heel but anything big is not good for my back. Love the color of these featured!


  79. Brigette says

    I would love to own a pair of these boots. I fell 3 years ago, and I still walk funny. My knee gives out on me at any given time. I try to buy good shoes, and I would love to be able to just see if these would help me keep my balance. I remember back in the day I would buy moon shoes, I loved them, but they stopped selling them. Are these the same shoes with a different name?

  80. Sarah C says

    Comfort is one of my biggest concerns with boots – also the fact that my calves are wide. I have other Earth shoes that I love, and am anxious to try the boots!

  81. Meg Galloway says

    I have one pair of earth boots and LOVE them. With 5 children I run around ALOT so I’m in need of a new pair and the leather boots look perfect! And toning up as I walk is GREAT!!

  82. says

    I’m looking for boots that will fit my calves. I went looking for some on black friday and the CSR was convinced I would have no problem fitting into high boots, she even told me, “The other day this woman came in with HUGE calves and had no problem zipping these up.” Well, apparently mine are a bit HUGER, cause they didn’t even zip up at all. LOL

  83. Sarah Dolinar says

    Comfort is priority! I suffer from plantar fasciitis and Earth shoes are the only ones that alleviate the pain.

  84. Jessica W. says

    I would love to win these boots!! Michigan winters are the worst!! My toes would like to be kept warm and comfortable this winter! Thanks for the chance!!

  85. Eugenie says

    I would love to win a pear of Acclaim boots. Comfort is my main criteria for any pair of footwear. The wide calf on these boots would be great for me since I have big calfs..

  86. Courtney says

    These are adorable! I love them! My biggest concern is comfort. It’s hard to find something that I can wear throughout the day without bothering my feet.

  87. Callie says

    I’ve been looking for boots–my biggest problem is that I need a wide calf, but these would be great b/c zappos says they are 16 inches in circumfrance in a size 6 (my size!).

  88. says

    I love boots, but my first concern is dryness. I live in Oregon and it is wet! Comfort and style are important too of course!
    smchester at gmail dot com

  89. Wendy Mahaney says

    I am in need of some new boots. My main concerns are comfort and warmth living here in Michigan, but if they are not cute forget it. :-)

  90. joyglo says

    I like to be warm and comfortable, and in the last 10 years I’ve only had 1 pair of boots that I liked. So these might fit my criteria.

  91. Crystal F says

    Comfort to me is definitely the most important factor in buying boots. My daughter on the other hand is all into the style. She wouldn’t care in they gave her blisters as long as they were cute. lol Thanks for the giveaway!

  92. Kmorghan says

    I love boots, but rarely find a pair I really like the looks of that I can wear comfortably for more than a short while. It’s important that they both look AND feel good. I have only one pair right now, and it is a pair of light brown suede Earth boots which are very comfy and look nice with any number of outfits. The ones you are giving away are very nice-looking, and I know they’ll be comfortable.

  93. Jill L says

    Those are some great looking boots!!! Comfort is definitely on the top of my list, but these would give me comfort and style. YAY!!!

  94. MelissaO says

    I’ve been shopping around for my first pair of low-heeled boots and I think versatility is my first concern…I have two pairs of high heeled boots and just get tired of wearing heels, though they even look great with jeans. Plus, I have super muscular calves, so am glad to hear that these are roomy.

    wolverina401 at gmail dot com

  95. Danielle says

    i want to say style.. but comfort is #1! i get cranky when my feet hurt so my boots need to be comfy. stylish doesnt hurt. 😉

  96. Erin says

    When I look for a pair of boots, comfort isn’t always my first thought…. however, since I broke my foot in March, I’ve been trying to find things that are both comfortable and stylish.

    glycinemax (at) gmail (dot) com

  97. charline says

    Comfort is the biggest thing for me. I love a great pair of stylish boots, But if they are not comfortable I won’t wear them.

  98. Theresa H says

    My biggest concern when looking for a pair of shoes/boots is the ability to find something that fits my ankle and the rest of my foot. I broke my ankle at the end of January and it makes what an already tough process (I have strange shaped feet) harder.

  99. danielle says

    The looks of these are awesome, if they are comfortable as well I would be a happy camper. I could use these at work if they are truly comfortable.

  100. JessicaG says

    I am always looking for fashionable boots, that have some sort of traction. Doesn’t matter how good the boot looks, if you are lying on your back on some ice!

  101. Tina Page says

    I live in the snowbelt of NE Ohio so am in need of a pair of boots that can keep my feet ward and dry, look stylish and be comfortable. That seems to be asking a lot since I have yet to find a pair i really like in the 9 years i have been here!

  102. says

    I have been on chemo for last year and need comfort to help with side effects but like boots to look good, tired of looking like an old lady in orthopedic shoes

  103. says

    A good fit is a main concern of mine since I have small feet. I like a boot to look good and feel good. Also the height of the boot is a consideration since I am petite.

  104. c y says

    Yes, comfort is. I have arthritis all over, especially my feet, so I have a hard time finding shoes that work for me. These look great because they do not have heels and any wierd angles which that would bend my foot.

  105. says

    As a photographer and stay at home mom i am on my feet constantly. i love footwear that provides me comfort and stability at the same time. I never know what i will be getting myself into each day.

  106. Angela says

    These boots look stylish enough to be seen with my 13 year old, but comfortable enough to keep up with my 4 and 6 year olds! Love them!

  107. deby.keller says

    I love the look of those boots! We’ve had a little snow here in Lexington KY and I think these would be wonderful–they would keep my feet dry plus they look stylish.

  108. Alex says

    I should say comfort, right? But I really care about how the boots look, and honestly, I’d endure a little toe-pinching for a really cute pair of boots. 😛 These boots look awesome though. Stylish and comfortable. The whole kit and kaboodle!

  109. heather c says

    It depends on why I’m buying the boots. If it’s for warmth, I’m looking for actual warmth. If it’s for fashion, I go for a look and a bit of comfort. If I can find ‘the look’ and great comfort, I’m a happy girl.
