Sneaky Sneakerinas and a Women’s World Cup Giveaway!

Besides the fact that Puma’s Sneakerinas include almost all of the syllables of one of my all-time favorite words (sneaky!), I’m way smitten with these new kicks. They’re bright, they’re comfortable, and they allow me to go from a yoga or Pilates class right on to the grocery store or out for a walk with the dog without a costume change (or looking like a dirty gym rat in public—besides the hair).

With a nice mix of synthetic leather and mesh that allows your tootsies to breathe, the Sneakerina (love the word-play on sneaker and ballerina flat for the name—genius!) has a moisture-wicking lining and an antimicrobial footbed that leaves your foot feeling totally cushiony without trying to beat your husband’s record for smelliest-foot-ever. (Ew.) With no tying required, I loved slipping  mine on to grab the mail, and with little nubbers on the bottom of the shoe, even if you decided to dart outside in an ice storm (which we don’t recommend, for the record), you’d have decent traction. My only small complaint is that sometimes the elastic band over the top of your foot gets too tight, but over the week or so that I’ve been wearing them, it’s loosened up. In a nutshell, they’re cute and allow you to go all fashionably Sporty Spice whenever you so choose.

Now that you know a little about this piece of Sneakerina heaven, we wanted to share another fun fact with you: The FIFA Women’s World Cup is coming in just a few weeks! To get you totally psyched for the girl-power soccer event, the makers of the Sneakerina are giving one lucky reader a Puma women’s soccer training prize pack with a bag full of sport and lifestyle gear from the new line (If you haven’t seen it yet, check it. SO. CUTE.) and a pair of Sneakerinas. To win, just leave a comment with what your favorite combo word is—real or totally made up (and let’s get more creative than Bennifer, ya’ll!)—and we’ll select one random U.S. commenter to win.

Seriously, this giveaway is so good we feel like we’re turning three all over again! —Jenn

    Wow those shoes are super cute!
    This isn’t a new word, but I love yogalates! Good for the core as well as the soul!

  2. says

    Oh, I love the look of these! I bet they’re pretty comfy too.

    I’m having trouble thinking of a good word combo off the top of my head right now. A buddy of mine is always calling things “awesomesauce” so maybe that counts?

  3. Nellie says

    I like to think of myself as an insane genius, or an insanius…hehehe! Those sneakerinas are awesome!

  4. Emily says

    I’m going to have to go with fluffernutter! Not only a fun word, but a sandwich that can soothe the soul!

  5. says

    Cute shoes! I’ve got to go check out how much they cost.

    I have to quote Tigger for my favorite word combos (though I doubt he originated it)… Absotively Posilutely!

  6. Courtney says

    I love these shoes & I love bromances! Ha – my husband and his “bff” have a total bromance, I am always feeling left out.

  7. Meredith H. says

    what a great giveaway! my favorite combo word is brinner-breakfast for dinner!

  8. says

    Jeez, so hard to pick. I’ll go with “Dotsicles,” which is a combination of “Dots,” our basset, and “popsicles.” Why do I combine my dog and a sweet frozen treat? No clue…

  9. Michelle T. says

    My favorite made up word is frawesome (freaking awesome!), my little sis made it up and uses it all the time!

  10. says

    Those shoes are awesome. Bromances is one word that is always floating around our house. Especially with my kids, they are trying to figure out what it is.

  11. Bridget Veillon says

    Cute shoes.. I think they are “fantabulous” that’s fantastic and fabulous!!

  12. Rachel says

    Since I’m focusing more on vegetarian meals (and losing a lot of weight b/c of it!), I’ve started using the word Veggielicious to describe my vegetarian concoctions!!

  13. SarahF says

    I’m thinking old school – Skort! Who doesn’t love a skirt and shorts combo? Especially for youngsters.

  14. Maggie says

    Those are adorable! My favorite combined word is guestimate. It takes the precision out of estimation, by guessing a bit!

  15. Leslie says

    Oh! Sara, we think alike, I was going to say Skort also! Hmmm, how about “Frawsome” for Freakin’ Awesome. LOL.

    Would love to add these cuties to my shoe collection!

  16. Ann says

    Don’t know if it’s a real combo, but I am quite fond of “Ridonkulous” as in “I love those sneakerinas, they are ridonkulous!”

  17. Holly Grenz says

    One word combo I use a lot: ginormous! (gigantic + enormous)
    LOVE LOVE LOVE those shoes! Super duper cute, would love to win them!

  18. Michelle says

    Ever since your post the other day, I haven’t been able to get the word brinner out of my head. I love breakfast for dinner!

  19. Emily says

    Those sneakerinas are treattastic! I would love a pair for my overworked feeties.

  20. Lani says

    You guys always give awesome stuff away! Courtney, my boyfriend has a bromance and I get made because sometimes he spends more time with his manfriend then he does with me! I totally know what you mean! But they’re both mechanics and I’m not! So they bond! I’m loving all of what you ladies have put! I wish I could come up with a fantabulous (fantasic and fabulous) word to use ;)

  21. Sandy says

    The first word that comes to mind is Redonkulous but not sure that is a combo so I will go with Rockumentary! These shoes look awesome!

  22. Crystal says

    Word combo: craptastic (really interesting stuff) but many other applications

  23. mj says

    Lewis Carrol called them “portmanteau words”, after the luggage style. So my favorite combo words are in his “Jabberwocky” poem- slithy for example…

  24. Angela says

    I like benefittal. Not so much of a word combination as much as it is benefittal to use it. :o )

  25. Lucy says

    Lol Becky! I was totally going to write something else here and then you reminded me of ‘Fugly’
    It made me giggle- the best made up word in my opinion!

  26. Linda Kish says

    Someone mentioned brinner, but I always end up having lunner. I never seem to eat both lunch and dinner so I have a combination.

  27. Dorie says

    My daughter loves her ‘jeggings’ ( jean leggings)! I also consider myself a ‘flexitarian’ (flexible vegetarian). I’ve gotten a giggle out of lots of these comments! Love the sneakerinas, too

  28. Debbie says

    Ha! I had my purple Puma shirt on even before I read this! Coinky-dink? I think not! Well my last name (except for the first letter) has the word “land” in it, so I use that a lot: Pumaland is where it’s at!

  29. says

    Super cute shoes! My combo word of choice: sweatastic! For example: I got a great workout in that Zumba class, and it was fun! Totally sweatastic!

  30. Marilyn says

    Personally I’m going to try just about every word combination to try to win these multipurpose sneakerinas, so here’s what I came up with in the spirit of the giveaway:

    pumapower (in honor of Puma),

    sneakerinette (what I would describe as a girl who wears sneakerinas),

    and soccastuna (this is the name that I would give the female players that I will be watching during the FIFA Women’s World Cup)

    BAM!

  31. LauraT says

    What a fantastic contest. I would so love to win the Puma Sneakerinas! I love all the combo dog breed names like the Labradoodle!

  32. Erin says

    My favorite combination word is ‘liger’ I got to see a liger at Miami’s Parrot Jungle Island and it was awesome!

  33. alh1203 says

    We like to have dunch at our house and we saw a beefalo at the the petting farm one time – buffalo and cow, but the best one was the zorse – had stripes like a zebra but the size of a horse.

  34. Andrea Scott says

    my word would be sweatyluscious- because that is how I feel after a great workout- sweaty and luscious

  35. Vee says

    spin-tastic! As in today’s cycling class was spin-tastic :D

  36. Lisa says

    My favorite combo word (to dislike) is gi-normous, a combination of gigantic and enormous. altern147 [at] yahoo [dot] com

  37. Beth says

    This is a toughy, but it has got to be a tie between bromance and hodyssey (the honda odyssey). I use bromance fairly often being mostly surrounded by guy friends and my mother (who has a dislike for all things honda) will actually roll down her window and yell “hodyssey!!” at a passing van every now and again. Priceless.

  38. Katie says

    sweataholic…what i’ve turned into now that im training for my first marathon and temps are in the high 90s–and its only early june!
    adding -aholic to anything always creates a fun word, though :) same with -phobic!
    would love to get my hands (read: feeet) on those sneaks!

  39. says

    When I was a kid I got so upset that mixed to words together and accidently came up with the word “angervated.” I was an angry and aggrivated child :)

  40. Nikole says

    Shagulous: fabulous and a person you’d like to shag with :)

    Your BFF asks how she looks before a hot date: you look shagulous!! Lol

  41. Kimberly says

    Love the sneakerinas! My favorite combo words are: braterina (brat & ballerina lol) I often call my 5 yr old daughter that (jokingly of course) bc she is so prissy lol. I’m not sure if this counts as a combo word but I cal my 18 month old daughter monkey-butt bc she loves to climb on everything lol so those a re my 2 favorites lol :)
