La Sportiva Giveaway – Win Free Stuff!

For those who aren’t aware, La Sportiva has a great contest going on right now, where they are giving away 5 pairs of shoes each week. All you have to do to enter is send in old photos of yourself wearing some vintage Sportiva gear, preferably highlighted by an overabundance of lycra. Head on over to their Facebook page for the full rules.

To help spread the word, we scored some sweet Sportiva digs to give away to our loyal SplitterChoss fans, all you have to do to win THIS stuff is to leave a comment below and you’ll be entered. Winners will be chosen at random next Tuesday, and then we’ll do it all over again next week.

So leave a comment here, and then head on over to enter the La Sportiva Heritage Photo Contest!

On deck this round are a men’s hoody, a women’s hoody, and a hat:

Good Luck!

Also, this is the start of some ongoing contests we’ll be running through the end of the year, so be sure to head over to our Facebook page and like us, if you haven’t already, to stay on top of the latest free stuff you can win!

  1. SWEET! I’m pretty sure none of my sportiva gear qualifies as heritage… Maybe I’ll submit a photo of Lizzy and my shoe collection. We have at least 30 pairs!

  2. comment!! oh boy, free sportiva stuff. Any idea how vintage/old the sportiva photos have to be? I have one of me in some old-ish katanas with an ankle brace on…. (such a bad idea…)

    • @vanessa – my understanding is the older the better, but it never hurts to give it a go!

      @luke – I’m in the same boat, ummm, my first Muira’s are at least 10 years old, does that count?

    Tom Markiewicz April 21, 2011 at 10:10 pm
    • just to be clear, i think they are looking for old photos where you are wearing Sportiva’s and whatever was fashionable at the time, hence the lycra.

      BJ Sbarra April 21, 2011 at 10:19 pm
