Pinksage Adidas Top Ten Kicks
@pinksage: Adidas



A couple of days ago, we hit up the Chic Dish Twitter account and asked our followers to send in a picture of the kicks that they were wearing at that very moment. It was an experiment, and if 20 responses came in, we would have given a $20 Zappos gift certificate away randomly to one of the submitters. Unforunately, we only got 17 submissions, so no giveaway on this one—however, we are going to do this regularly, so be on the lookout, and be sure to follow Chic Dish on Twitter.

That said, we had a great time checking out the submissions, all of which you can find after the jump, along with the Twitter user who sent it in. Go take a look, and let us know what you think - any favorites?

Edit: Okay, we are getting a few questions about the roll of toilet paper in the above photo—we checked with @pinksage, and apparently, she has “the sniffles” and was too lazy, or broke (have you seen the economy lately), to do it up right and grab a box of Kleenex.
