No, we’re not talking about that debonair Pink Panther. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when many people, including celebrities such as Fergie and Melissa Etheridge, don pink ribbons to support organizations that focus on this issue and save women diagnosed with breast cancer. eBay is leading the pack by creating a hub on its eBay Giving Works site dedicated to auctions benefiting the Avon Foundation for Women Breast Cancer Crusade and other worthwhile charities related to breast cancer research and prevention. eBay has thousands of these listings, and it’s time to highlight a few on the theme of shoes.
But not just any shoes. Fabulous shoes. Check out this listing forNew Pink Stiletto High Heel Peep Toe Pump Size 8.5
Before you run and check if someone took a pair of Manolo Blahniks out of Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment, you should know that the brand is Qupid, known for its luxe line of animal-print stilettos, lace-up ankle booties, bejeweled sandals, peep-toe boots, motorcycle chic leather platforms, and these pink satin beauties. You can rock these with your favorite LBD and be the talk of the party. The seller is donating 10 percent of the final sale price to the American Cancer Society.
When you think about pink shoes, is the first word that pops into your mind “practical”? Probably not. Pink shoes tend to be about taking the stage to belt out show-stopping numbers or stopping on the red carpet to get flashbulb-blinded by the paparazzi. Yet this listing for ASICS Sneakers Corrido H071L-2113 Super Pink demonstrates that sleek sneaks can walk the line between trendsetting and urban-friendly.
These kicks have street smarts. ASICS calls them “boulevard cruisers,” but they have enough support to carry you through a low-impact workout. The seller is donating 15 percent of the auction proceeds to Susan G. Komen for the Cure – Los Angeles Affiliate.
For women who want a more structured workout shoe, or just a shoe that gives them a workout, take the multiple choice test at this listing for REEBOK Women’s Fitness Shoes 2 Styles EasyTone Flash or Reattack Get Fit.
Option A, the EasyTone Flash, comes in dynamic fuchsia with silver accents. Option B, the Reattack, has a more classic workout shoe look as it is predominantly white but with hot pink details. These styles are toning shoes, meaning they have inserts in the soles that make you use your leg and gluteal muscles for balance. The seller, Backstreet Shoes, will donate 10 percent of the auction’s proceeds to Susan G. Komen for the Cure – Orange County Affiliate.
Make October a month to remember by spicing up your wardrobe and supporting charities that help save women’s lives.
