I have love Ahnu shoes for a while now. Let's just say that when they agreed to come on as a sponsor for my giveaway event, I may have done a little dance around my office.
See, I'm not a high heels kind of girl... I own one pair that I break out for VERY special occasions, but otherwise I want shoes that can go from sitting at my desk at work, to pounding the pavement as I run errands all over Center City... and that last.

With our camping trip coming up, and the monthly work I've been doing at Ridley Creek, I've been wanting a good pair of hiking boots, and I definitely found them.

Plus, the break-in time on these is practically nil, and they are comfortable from moment one.
Even though I just got this pair, and I already own another pair, I'm STILL jealous that someone else gets a new pair of Ahnus!
