Our fourth day 12 Days of Grit-Mas giveaway prize is from adventure-inspired footwear company BANGS Shoes.

The Prize: One pair of BANGS shoes ($60 value)

This giveaway has ended and we have a winner! Thanks to everyone who entered!

BANGS Shoes' slogan is "Your adventure helps others find theirs." Get your adventure started with one free pair of BANGS' shoes, which have a minimal design perfect for any outfit, whether you're hiking off the Blue Ridge Parkway or walking around South Slope.

Founder Hannah Davis modeled the shoes after the simple work boots she saw worn by workers and farmers while teaching in China. The shoes, and their founder's story, have been featured everywhere from Refinery29 and ELLE magazine to Buzzfeed and USA Today (and check out our interview with Davis on Grit!). Not only do the shoes come in a variety of fun colors, but 20% of the company's net profits go towards helping entrepreneurs launch their businesses. If you win, you pick the style and color of your BANGS; shipping is included!


Check out BANGS different shoes, and the adventures they inspire, on their Instagram.

Want to win? Enter your email below between 9 am and 12 midnight on Thursday, December 15th! We'll notify the winner within 24-48 hours of the end of the contest.
