You’ve seen FINSK shoes illuminate the catwalks of New York and London Fashion Week and punctuate the ensembles of some of today’s most distinctive and influential style bloggers. Now, prepare to experience them up close and personal for yourselves, on your own sweet, deserving tootsies! In celebration of our upcoming One-Year Anniversary, VERY GLOSSY has teamed up with FINSK to give away three £100 vouchers to a few very lucky readers out there…

Launched back in 2004, FINSK is the brainchild of Finnish-born and London-based designer Julia Lundsten, a graduate of London’s Royal College of Art and two-time winner of the prestigious Manolo Blahnik Award. Lundsten’s edgy design aesthetic, influenced heavily by architecture and forms found in nature, is evidenced by the bold, sculptural silhouettes and strong, geometric forms that define these powerful high fashion shoes.

Yes, it’s true–these towering platforms are a whole lotta look, but don’t let them intimidate you. FINSK wedges can be paired up easily with many of your existing wardrobe basics. Take a cue from Chiara of The Blonde Salad and Andy of Style Scrapbook, who allow their FINSK wedges to act as the building foundation for each of their otherwise basic ensembles. (Note: These shoes need plenty of room to shine!)

Best of all, while looking more incredible than ever in your new FINSK shoes, you’ll be backing a label that prides itself on its environmental responsibility to the world. All leathers procured for production at the FINSK atelier in Brazil are byproducts of other industries, while the sustainable hard woods used for the shoes’ heels are sourced directly from Brazil as well, keeping raw material transportation (and the company’s carbon footprint) to a respectful minimum.

We don’t know about you, but we’re itching to get this giveaway started! Enter to win £100 to spend at FINSK by simply leaving your email address as a comment below and sharing this contest on Facebook. It’s that easy! You have until 11:59pm on Friday, August 5th to enter. Winners will be notified on Monday, August 8, 2011.
