Shoeper Shoe Challenge Week 52 Roundup: THE END!

Shoeper Shoe Challenge

Folks, WE DID IT!

It’s been 52 weeks, 365 days, and whole lot of shoes, but now it’s time to celebrate, because the Shoeper Shoe Challenge is officially OVER!

(Well, almost over, anyway: you technically have until midnight tonight to save your last pairs of shoes, so feel free to come back to this post later in the week to add your photos if you don’t have them ready now!)

If you’ve made it this far, then huge congratulations: whether you managed to “save” all of your shoes or not, it’s still a big commitment, and I can’t tell you all how much I’ve enjoyed having you all along for the ride – or how impressed I am that so many of you stuck it out to the bitter end!

I’ll be officially “saving” my last pair of shoes tonight, when I wear them out for a Valentine’s dinner with Shoeperman, so I’ll post my own final Shoe Save tomorrow, and have a wrap-up post planned for later in the week, too. This post, however, is all about my ShoeperStars, so feel free to upload any last images, or just drop me a comment to let me know how you got on with the challenge. Above all, though, CONGRATULATIONS! You just completed one full year of saving shoes: you’re true Shoeperheroes, and I’ll be sure to raise a toast to all of you tonight!



      • What exactly happens when you try to use it? It should only reject images which are really gigantic – unfortunately we can’t host those because they slow the site down so much and use up a lot of bandwidth, so they have to be re-sized before they can be uploaded!

    to see the rest of my shoe challenge:

    Thank you Shoeperwoman for a great challenge and for getting me to wear all my shoes!

  • I honestly don’t remember which pictures I posted here last time, but I guess I not these ones… hopefully!
    What I have to say, and I said to Amber many times before, is that the challenge not only made me wear my shoes (some still in boxes in other countries, but alas, I made my best effort!), and outfits, but it was MOST OF ALL, the way I found to be myself again, to have reasons to get up. It was a long year grieving and the Challenge was one of my saviours. (I am OK now.)

    Thanks for all, dear Amber, I will never forget the Challenge and you!
    Also thanks for the “gorgeous” last week, I read and blushed… got so shy!
    Ah, one more pair later today! (Can you believe it’s 40 degrees C here today?)
    Tomorrow, UK!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚


    • Aww, you’re so welcome: your beautiful smile never fails to cheer me up, and I can’t tell you how nice it is to know it’s made a bit of a difference to someone: thanks so much for being such a big part of it πŸ™‚

  • Congratulations to all who did it, and thank you, Amber, for running this Challenge! πŸ™‚

    As you know, I already finished in November, and the pairs I didn’t wear have found their way to Oxfam last week.
    But as a parting gift I want to show you one last picture which relates to a comment for the shoes Helena Bonham Carter wore to the Golden Globes last year:
    “Stef on January 18, 2011 at 5:45 pm said:
    I think it’s kinda cool, I’ve always wanted to do the same with converse.”

    This is what that looks like:

    Hugs to everybody who took part, it has been fun! πŸ˜€

      • I did this with melissa flats πŸ™‚ the boy hated it but I thought it was fun…

        I would try the Lady Dragons but what kind of combination would you choose?

  • The Shoeper Shoe Challenge was great and I am so glad to have participated in it! Thanks, Amber for including us. I loved reading about your shoe challenge last year, and am happy to have been able to do it this year! I made a shoe collage that I thought I would post. (Making the collage ended up being quite fun as well!)

  • Congratulations to everyone to participated! I didn’t, but in doing my own version I have worn many more pairs of shoes than I usually would. Which is excellent!

  • Thanks so much to Amber for organising the shoe challenge – it’s been a lot of fun πŸ™‚ I’ve finally gotten through all my shoes (all 150-something of them!), and here are my last few pictures…


  • One last picture, as it wouldn’t let me upload more than 5 in the one comment!
