The weather was stiflingly hot when I left my home in the US last week, but it is cool and drizzly here in parts of Europe.
When packing space is at a minimum for travels (carry-on only, thank you very much) there isn’t always a ton of room for clothing made for unpredictable weather. It can be tough to look professional when you’re stomping around in a meeting wearing chunky boots rather than sleek heels, but no one wants to risk wearing their heels in the rain.
One great solution is galoshes, and thanks to Go Go Galosh I’m running a contest this week where you can enter to win your very own pair! Bonus – they won’t take up much room in your bag, either. Although the galoshes are intended for ladies, the contest is open to men as well since the prize makes a great gift for someone special.
Go Go Galosh is “fashion’s answer to foul weather”. They fold into a compact bundle, and when you need them they fit over your regular shoes. That way you look fashionable, don’t have to carry around your heels, and when you arrive at your destination you can slip the galoshes off and tuck them away in their own little pouch in a flash.
You can also wear them without shoes underneath so if you want to leave your work shoes under your desk while you run across the street to the deli, no one will be the wiser. The galoshes work in mud and snow too, and they come in a bunch of colors so you can pick your favorite.
I was reading a little bit on the specs of the galoshes, and was surprised to find that not only were they durable, but the inner sole is bullet-proof, to protect spike heels from puncturing the outer sole. Yet, they fold easily. Impressive. How many readers can brag that any of their shoes are bullet-proof? None of mine are.
Here’s some quick info about Go Go Galoshes from their website –
Uppers are made of 100% waterproof nylon
Rubber soles with non-slip treads
Foldable, packable, portable, lightweight, great for travel!
Comes with water resistant pouch
Accommodates different heel heights and toe styles

I’ll have daily pictures of my Europe travels from this week up on Instagram for readers to see. The contest will end Monday June 20, 2016 at 9pm PST.
I’ll do a random drawing (using random.org) Tuesday the 21st of June out of all my Magic of Miles Instagram followers that have left at least one comment during the contest period, and one lucky winner will receive a free pair of Go Go Galoshes with shipping included (a $100+ value).

No purchase necessary. The contest is open to all US residents, ages 18 and over at the time of entry. The winner will be contacted within 48 hours of contest end via Instagram/email to get their preferred size, color, and shipping address within the United States (sorry, no PO Boxes). Every effort will be made to contact the winner, but if there is no response within 14 days a second winner will be randomly chosen (using Random.org). The Go Go Galoshes will be provided by Go Go Galosh, the contest sponsor. Magic of Miles does not receive anything from Go Go Galosh for running the contest. The contest hosted by Magic of Miles is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Instagram. The winner of the contest will receive one pair of Go Go Galosh.
