In an attempt to let the world know how committed they are to their footwear line, Chrome announces their Turds For Gold Shoe Exchange. For two days only, Chrome will be slinging a new pair of shoes to anyone that sends them a worn-out pair of kicks.
"There are a lot of great shoe brands out their but few, if any, are made to handle the harsh demands of riding in the city," says Chrome Marketing Director, Matt Sharkey.
“Our shoes are built to hold up under the toughest conditions and are designed 100% to address the needs of the everyday city cyclist. Not only did we want to build a shoe that was durable and functional, but we also paid close attention to overall fit and timeless style."
The exchange begins on Wednesday, March 17 and ends promptly the next day on Thursday, the 18th. Packages must be post marked by 3/18 to qualify and should include a return shipping address and shoe size info.
Please ship all packages to:
Attn: Turds for Gold/Sharkey
580 4th Street
San Francisco, CA 94107
Chrome may be what some consider the Wal-Mart of messenger bags and biking gear, but most of their products are of decent quality and priced competitively. I've owned a chrome bag for almost four years now and its still in great shape, and while now I prefer Baileyworks for my bag needs, I still consider the chrome bag one of my best purchases. I haven't had a chance to try on their shoes, but a free pair of shoes for a pair of work out kicks is a good deal no matter what. Hopefully I'll get time tonight to send a pair of my ragged Samba's in.
