Sheena, akaBrown_Beauty08, bka Shoeacidal, won the Race to the Red Bottoms during my CurlyNikki’s Favorite Things Giveaway. Her shoes arrived Friday and although she’s not back to share them, she is back to share pics. Ms. Sheena should be grateful that we don’t wear the same size shoe ’cause it’d be like both ours… we’d just keep ’em down at my house’. #Deebo’ed
Pardon My Red Bottoms #1 They are here!
by Sheena of Shoeacidal
My girl did not hesitate to contact me upon my win and work out the details for getting me this FABULOUS prize. I’ve never won anything prior to this but, I’m sure in most giveaways you don’t win and get the prize all in the same week. Especially not one of this magnitude. Much Respect!
I thought I was excited before but, I can’t begin to tell you how anxious I was to open up the package containing these beautiful DIVAS. So without further adieu here’s the official:
Pardon My Red Bottoms #1
(Drum roll please….)
OMG! there is a letter…
Material: Patent Leather
Heel height: 4.7 inches
How they feel? Like a DREAM
The Victory Walk
So I think the question was "where should I wear them and what should I wear them with?"….ARE YOU FOR REAL SERIOUS!? First of all….wear them EVERYWHERE! I mean that…to the market with a cute sundress….hell around the house with your headscarf on while doing the dang dishes! and you can wear those with ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING! what you had on was fab! You were just joking with those questions right?! LOL! Girl you would not be able to get me out of those dang shoes! The question should be where should i NOT wear them because everything else is fair game…CONGRATS GIRL THEY ARE HOT! Love the pointy toe too!
Sheena, boo, 1 celebratory clap for the victory you have in these beauties and a never-ending round of applause for the people who clicked the link to your video, learned about natural hair and joined CN's fab site as result.
May these shoes serve as your reminder that everday natural is an opportunity to inspire others and I hope this competition (and comments)reminds others that every screenname is a person and every natural is a beauty… No reason to be so ugly towards each other.
Now, Imma replay this video like 50 times because that's my JAM!
Great video babe, I'm glad you won. I put in work in editing that video. I can tell you all it wasn't easy putting it together. Especially, with that being my first time editing and all.
As for the people providing well wishes thank you. As for the people point out flaws thank you. We do not believe there are any haters. Just people who want to see you ultimately do better.
As a person who as been natural all his life I approve of this message.

We are not haters. At least 4 or so of us said that the shoes are too big. She said herself that she has to wear pads because walking like frankenstein makes her feet swell. I will never purchase/win shoes without trying them on first. And then to walk on a video with those bogus shoes on is hilarious. We are not haters, we are realistic.
@MerriMerri Thanks so much
LOVE the hardwood floors!!!!
Congrats girl!!!! And continue to ignore these gross haters!
They gap in the back because they're too **@ high and the feet are forced to an unnatural position. They look cute but you can find a similar style without the ouch/damage factor. No hate because I wouldn't waste my funds for an overpriced shoe! I find it amazing that some folks are too cheap to buy good makeup but are willing to spend crazy money on one pair of shoes! And I love lux things.
and LOL to the comments on here. What women do for shoes hahahaha
Congrats! Beautiful shoes!
I hate you! I am so jealous!! They are so hott and your feet look amazing!! 🙂 Congrats girl!!
@dvaaunaturel Thanks so much for being a great competitor, of course please submit your question to ShoeAcidal.com so I won't forget.
@MelMelBee Thanks luv. You know I will be sure to share pics with my forum curlfriends.
@Kimmie0810 Great suggestion. I typically buy a half size bigger and add shoe pads, to account for the swollen foot syndrome up from walking around all day.
@brown_beauty08. Don't worry about the haters. It is to be expected. That's what the internet provides you. Hell, I'm sure you get hated on a lot anyway.
@ Anonymous 11:08
Tell me why you mad son? The winner of this giveaway was chosen by the people. Her video was clearly the best one. Did you see the votes?
Also, you make absolutely no damn sense thinking someone else would benefit more by owning a 700 dollar pair of shoes. Are you retarded? This isn't flip flops this is a designer heel!
LOL @ your politics line.. once again she won by a landslide and rightfully so.
I swear all you haters are losers who got picked last in all the sports. You mad you didn't go to prom? Get over it, she won. What's next you mad she got a white toy dog and a nice house? Lames!
Wow. This isn't a presidential election, why are people so upset that somebody won a pair of shoes?? Save your pennies and go buy your own. What's the big deal? This isn't a communist community where everyone has to have an equal number of Loubies. Good grief.
I think they're really nice & love the color. I don't think I want to wear heels that high anymore but I do need a nice mid-heel nude shoe.
I notice that Louboutins do tend to "gap" at the back, hopefully the new size works out well. If not, a good shoe pad will fix that right up.
@Anon 12:04…..in the words of the late great Biggie Smalls…
"Playaahh Hata, turn your head round
Take off that crown, you've been robbed
Wake up, open the door
Don't cry no more, you've been robbed……Of those Louboutins"
@Brown…Congrats girl! I'm living vicariously through you!
Good thing you chose nude, it'll match everything.
BTW, the high heeled dilemma seems to affect amateurs only.
they look hella big on your feet LOL good luck walking in those gurll
I just went on her blog and I see that she already owns a pair of louboutins. it would've been nice to see someone win who never owned a pair before. but you know how politics go. her video was cool and creative, but i feel someone else could have benefitted from this prize a bit more.
The shoes are GORGEOUS! I am so jelly (jealous) right now, lol. Girl rock them shoes any and everywhere. I decided, once I saw you were spanking us in competiton, that I would have to treat myself to a pair for real. They look sharp!
Since you had to return them due to sizing can you let me know how the sizing worked out. That is something I have always wondered about with Louboutins and Jimmy Choo's. Isn't it supposed to be a full size up or something like that?
They are purty, but they look incredibly uncomfortable.
The thing with high heeled shoes like this is that they are cute for about five minutes. Then the ladies start looking like Frankstein while they are walking because the body wasn't meant to balance on something like that.
I don't know why we pretend they are comfortable, when we know they are not. Yes they are pretty, but that deep knee bend walk that women do in high heels in not cute.
The ankles and feet start to roll out and if you have on open toe high heels, your toes start hanging over and touching thre ground.
Try wearing a wedge high heel, (but not too high). You have more to balance on. I was at an event last night and saw so many women leaning on tables and walls and chairs, because their shoes were too high.
You can still be cute without sky high heels on. There were several nice looking men out last night too. I didn't see any of them leading on the tables though. Hmmmm….wonder why? And before you say it, no I am not hating on the lady that won the shoes. Her entry video was very good.
Just for kicks, the next time you go out, observe the women walking in sky high shoes a and look at the gait.
such a purty color…the shoes are very nice. Congrats!
yes i work with the wonderful Sheena and she happens to be that creative and funny in real life. i feel the same way about you, CN but you have that knack for making us all feel that way :-D.
@Candace4life I have yet to experiance any ankle problems from heels of this height.
They are CUTE! You can wear those with anything girl. I would! Congrats on your win, and glad to see you're returning them for a better fit. You can send them to my house :o)
Those shoes are nice, but looks a tad big for her foot. I would not be able to walk in those bad boys w/o falling flat on my face lol…. Just curious do those cause any ankle problems with those being that high?
Woooow!!! Those shoes are awesome! The only thing that bothers me is the color. Why do the manufacturers always call that color "nude" ? Nude for WHOM? Hmm…Can we get that color in black women's "Nude"? Just sayin'
I am returning the shoe for the proper fit but, didn't want to leave you hanging any longer so we posted.
Thanks again for the support
They look a bit too big…
Thanks ladies for your kind words and support.
Congratulations on your win! Very cute shoes. Note to the salty folk – MOVE ON!
BrownBeauty you work those shoes and thanks to you Nik for having such an epic giveaway. I missed this one, but please let me know when the next CL one is!
Congrats! They are beautiful shoes and we know you'll treat them well. I do think they are a tad too big but gorgeous nonetheless.
Beautiful shoes & congrats!! wow grown acting like this a shame again why can't we just support each other!! Anyteehoo!! Great contest!! Rock those shoes girlie
The haters are out, who left the door open?
Love it! Nikki you're the bomb, Im gonna send u my info for a pair ;). Mine can be used lol.
Anony up there…stop hating. Let winners ride their wave.
is it me or are those shoes too big? lmao congrats girl enjoy them. to anon @ 12:04pm U MAD?!!! LMAO. i never. winning these shoes is like winning the lotto, aint no moral to the ish. she just a lucky gal, some ppl just have all the luck. in my life bitter ppl are rarely the lucky ones. chill
how fitting that she has a blog called shoeacidal; they look friggin awesome. congrats!
@ Anonymous. Did you go to her shoe blog? You would see her first post was when she won these shoes. You argument is invalid. She won the shoes because the "People" on Curly Nikki's site voted for her to win. She wasn't given the shoes. She won the shoes. You're bitter for no reason
Considering she has a shoe vlog/blog she didn't need to win the shoes. I'm just saying give them to someone who has never had fancy shoes. What a waste, its like giving Carrie Bradshaw free shoes. It is along the same lines as Kim Kardashian receiving "donations" for her wedding…when you can afford it buy it.
@ Mothereatha, y'all work together?! How cool. Why do I feel like I 'know' you, lol.
Those are sexy!!!!!! Congrats to you!!!
Congrats!! Wear them with EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE!!
Nikki what a great contest!
LOL!!!! i have already told ms. sheena that she needs to wear them to work THIS week! and that i am the next in line to give them a whirl around the office 🙂 congrats sheena!
