Kickin’ Giveaway: Brand new pair of boots from Country Outfitter!

We recently attended — and taught a session — at the Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged Conference. One of the MANY treats for the 70+ awesome lady bloggers was BOOTS.

Our friend Stephanie McCratic of Evolved Mommy was officially dubbed The Oprah of Boots at the event. “You get boots!”  And you get boots! And YOU get boots!”

Stephanie, Amy at Our Everyday Dinners and I (Shannon) actually drove up to the conference in Amy’s large SUV simply packed with Country Outfitter boots.

Stephanie works for Acumen Brands (the parent company of Country Outfitters) and here she is making the exciting announcement that the boots are lined up and waiting to be claimed:

Each blogger who attended the conference got to pick out a pair of boots for herself.

You know what’s extra awesome? Each blogger ALSO got a pair to give away to her readers. Yep, that’s right! That means one of you deserving mamas out there will win your own pair of Country Outfitter boots! The winner (as always, chosen at random) will receive a $150 gift certificate to go shopping — on them! You can choose your favorite pair. They carry brands like Ariat, Justin, Lucchese, Durango and Twisted X Boots.

I leave you with some shots from the Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged conference where the Oprah of Boots handed out pretty boots to all the pretty bloggers. All of these pics were snapped with my iPhone, so apologies for the grainy quality. The shots: Country Outfitter boots all in a row; bloggers raptly listen to a conference proposal; our Iron Chef-ish team from Foodie Friday (we couldn’t have swept the awards without cookers Amy James and Ceri Wilkin!); some awesome Supergirl blogger friends and me; some two-steppin’ fun; the lovely tables at an outdoor picnic; and more two-steppin’!



  1. Kathleen says

    I can’t describe how hard it was to pick out “my favorite” boots from the Country Outfitter site. My husband actually walked by the computer and said, “You have been on there awhile. Are you buying boots or something?” I would choose the Legend Boot in Distressed Brown, but honestly there are about 20 that I love!

  2. Barbie says

    I love boots! Since I already have a pair of the brown vintage lizard, I would choose the black vail 15″ boot by Tony Lama. So cute!

  3. Pam Lewis says

    There are so many beautiful boots! I like the Women’s Heritage Western J Toe Wing Tip Boot in Wood, but could easily change my mind.

  4. Elena V says

    What fun! Loved the pictures!

    I would pick the Women’s 10″ Crush Sultry Slouch Boots – Distressed Sunset Brown and wear them to the Saturday Night Live downtown Nashville. Dancing is such a wonderful way to spend the last days of summer.

  5. Stacy Schmidt says

    I would love to have a pair of bling cowboy boots. I haven’t had cowboy boots since high school. Wow. That’s been awhile. It would give me a reason to go out dancing.

  6. says

    I’d probably choose the Corral boots. Cute! Cute! Cute! And I’m a dress + cowboy boots kind of girl, but alas, I have just one pair.

  7. Katherine Morton says

    I love the Dan Post El Paso boots. I would love to have them! I would wear them everywhere but of course to all my daughter’s horse shows!!

  8. Marian says

    So hard to choose. I like the Ariat and the Durango but a girl has a right to change her mind. I could shop for awhile.

  9. Melissa says

    I LOVE the Women’s Kats Natural Westport boots, and I would love the chance to break them in at the upcoming Alan Jackson concert! Thanks

  10. says

    I LOVE boots!! EEK! But I think if I won, I’d get the Ruff Stock NWSToe- Bomber by Twisted X! And then I’d paint roses on them!!
    So… PICK ME!!! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!!

  11. Kristy Williams says

    I would actually give them to my daughter. She is 16 and would love a pair! The corral’s are beautiful and she would probably wear them EVERYWHERE!!

  12. says

    I would get the Men’s Monty Boot – Golden Brown/Brown for my daddy. His name is actually Monty and he is the hardest working man I know. It’s nothing for him to work 60+ hours on the farm to support his family. An amazing man and father deserves these boots :D

  13. Melissa Wilson says

    I have been wanting a pair of boots that I can wear with a dress. I love the Heritage Western J Toe Boot-Timber!!

  14. Sierra says

    If I won, I would choose the women’s Turquoise Cortez/Cream Fleur de Lis Boot – R1973, and I’d wear them on a date night with the hubby!

  15. Carrie says

    I would love to win this!! You girls always have the best giveaways! I’ve really been wanting a pair of boots. It’s been years since I’ve had a pair. In the little time I spent looking, my favorites were all Corrals. Thanks for the opportunity!!

  16. Meredith Neesvig says

    I love the Dark Brown Rawhide Boot! I thinking would wer thm to the next great girls night I can plan!

  17. Whitney says

    As much as I would love to have a pair of boots, I think I would choose the Kid’s Quickdraw Boot for my son. He is obsessed with all things cowboy!

  18. Britt says

    There are way too many to choose from! I would love a pair of red or black boots to wear on game days! :)

  19. Judy Best says

    So many to choose from, but the ones I kept coming back to are the Women’s Black/Antique Saddle Wing & Heart Boot. Thinking that would go with so many of my outfits!

  20. says

    Well… It took me 17 days to pick out my last pair of boots from Country Outfitter. After that, I started pinning my favorties so the next time won’t be so hard. I have completely fallen in love with a few pairs of Twisted X boots, they are all so pretty! I would pretty much just wear a pair everyday if I could.

  21. Melany Shelton says

    I would love the Old Gringo’s! But might get my cute hubby a pair instead! Decisions. Decisions.

  22. Shelta Sneed says

    I’d like a black pair of dressy boots! LOL
    And I’d wear them everywhere!!! :-)

    I hope I win!

  23. Stacey says

    Too many wonderful choices, but I’d probably pick the Women’s Vintage Black Python Inlay Boot. They are gorgeous! I’d wear them everywhere — even to church! :)

  24. Ines says

    I would get the Justin Women’s Sorrel Apache Boot – L2552 and go boot schootin’ at the Fort worth Stockyards! Yeehaw! my old college stomping grounds.

  25. Rosemary says

    I love boots in fall and winter!! I would pick the corral boot because I love the color. I would wear them casual and also dressy!

  26. Nicole says

    This would be my very first pair of boots (REALLY!) and I’d wear them to the Alan Jackson concert coming up :-)

  27. Heather W says

    I would choose the Tony Lama Tan Saigets Worn Goat N Toe Boot. And where WOULDN’T I wear them?!? Bonefires and Razorback games would be at the top of the list!

  28. Carrie Montgomery says

    I would love a new pair of boots! I like the
    Ariat Women’s Caballera Boot – Weathered Brown.

  29. Traci Davis says

    My favorite is the Ariat Women’s Crossfire Boot – Weathered Buckskin. But like everyone else, it was hard to choose just one pair! :)

  30. Jerissa Rogers says

    it was hard to choose and would take me awhile if i got to go shopping for them and i would love for my daughter to get her a pair she would never take them off but for me i like Women’s Fatbaby Cowgirl Boot – Distressed Brown/Mossy Oak. I would wear them around town, going out etc

  31. Diane says

    I’ll bet I wrote down several pairs that I would love to have but would probably like a pair that I could wear with dress or pants. I think I would enjoy the Ariat Womens Heritage Roughed Tan/Cream. I have purchased several pairs for my grandkids, but not for myself so that would be a real treat-thanks

  32. Rosie says

    I love the Legend spirit boot. I would love to wear them out dancing and to the Alan Jackson concert:)

  33. Shannon says

    I would pick the Corral pair, but they are all beautiful! Id have to wear them to learn how to boot scoot in them!

  34. Lisa says

    Dan Post Misti boot….and where would I love wearing them? Where would I not wear them? First stop, Alan Jackson concert. Next, probably Walmart, the mall, to a movie, out shopping, Razorback games, tailgating, Napa (cuz they need a little southern girl treatment), PTA meetings, church, out dancing, parties, fundraisers, girls night,………………………………..

  35. says

    I would get a pair for each of my kids. I already have two pair, and they both love to wear them around the house. And of course, the beauty of online shopping is that I can narrow the selection down to what I like and then let them pick from that!

  36. says

    Ariat – Heritage Western R Toe Boot, red deertan…and where would I wear them? To the Alan Jackson concert at the AMP and then to the Alan Jackson concert at Choctaw Casino in Durant OK the next night…and just about anytime I left the house,

  37. Micaiah says

    Geez, how am I supposed to choose?! I’m always a fan of anything from Lucchese :) Pretty sure they would be an everyday, everywhere kind of shoe for me!!

  38. Angela Howrey says

    I have really wanting a pair of boots with turquoise on them. Love the Corral eagle ones with turquoise<3

  39. April says

    There were so many great boots to choose from! After looking through every page, I think I’d pick the Corral Yellow/Red/Turquoise Butterfly.

  40. Amy says

    I would like the Reina Boot- Red Appy/Well Brown boots. I would love to wear them to the Alan Jackson concert :)

  41. Erica says

    I love all the corral style boots! Very cute! Everyone in my family my husband included has boots except me so(go figure) :-) I have always always wanted a pair of cowgirl boots! Hope I can win! Thanks for being so generous!

  42. Gail Halleck says

    Love the Laredo-Miranda; old gringo-Sora boot (only if I win the lotto); Twisted X-ruff stock NWS toe bomber; and Laredo-Women’s star flower boot

    Can you tell I had a hard time choosing!!

    I love the Women’s Turquoise Cortez/Cream Fleur de Lis Boot! CO’s selection is the best on the web, by far ….

    beautiful boots!

  45. Grace says

    I think I would have to go with the Ariat- Heritage Western X or Heritage Western R. I’ve always wanted a pair, and am so thankful for your generosity (even if I don’t win(; )

  46. WIlla says

    So many to choose but I am loving the Women’s Distressed Winged Heart Square Toe Boots – A1990 and those Women’s Caballera Boot – Weathered Brown are gorgeous also. Decisions, decisions!

  47. Paulette says

    I would love the Ariat York riding boot. I visit family in Minnesota often, and these would be great to wear for the winter there.

  48. Robin Quick says

    I entered my email at Country Outfitter. My favorite boots are the Men’s Black Deercow Boot – 2553 for my son. He wants to wear them everywhere!
