Festive Footwear


We get a lot of announcements for contests, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen one asking people to decorate their shoes with holiday themes.

Shu’s Idaho Running Company is holding the Shu’s Holiday Shoe Contest between now and Dec. 23 as a fundraiser for Girls on the Run, an organization that helps young girls through mentoring and track.

Contestants are challenged to decorate a pair of shoes with a holiday theme, be it Christmas, Thanksgiving or maybe even the winter solstice. Just bring the fancy footwear to Shu’s—along with the requested $10 donation. The shoes will be judged and the $10 goes to Girls on the run.

The owner of the winning pair will receive a $50 gift card, socks and a goodie bag, while second place will walk with a $25 gift card, socks and a goodie bag.

Stop by Shu’s, 1758 W. State St. or call 208-344-6604 for more info.
