Goodyear Footwear: Official Sponsor of Chris Duke
Posted on January 13, 2017 by Chris Duke
This Facebook announcement that features a photo of my foot says it all! Goodyear Footwear is now my official footwear sponsor. You will see me sporting their new kicks for car guys on my show, Motorz TV, on Duke’s Drive, my social media, and more!
Goodyear Tires For Your Feet
Goodyear Footwear is broken down into 4 collections… Work & Safety, Performance & Racing, Heritage, and Outdoor. I have one pair from each collection, and my honest opinion is that these are top notch, quality, comfortable shoes. All of them. Believe me, I hate it when you buy shoes online, wait for them to arrive, only to find out the actual product in-hand doesn’t hold up to the website’s photos. Think “Big Mac photo” and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about (yeah, it never looks anything like that).
My New Daily Drivers
My new “daily driver” kicks are the ones you see in the photo and in their announcement. It’s the Vulcan Var Canvas style, and are by far my favorite shoe for color, style, and comfort. I’ve been through my fair share of department store and FootLocker shoes that are over-priced, not even that comfortable, and definitely not geared for the automotive enthusiast with bitchen Goodyear tire tread designs.
I admittedly am not a “sneakerhead”, but I do appreciate a good shoe and have tried many over the past few years including Nike, Converse, Vans, Diesel, and Sketchers. Goodyear Footwear is the real deal. On this particular shoe, there’s no mistaking the giant Goodyear logo on the sole of the shoe. It screams “I’m a car guy” and I absolutely love that!
Yes, I’m sponsored by Goodyear Footwear, however I wrote this article in my own words and was not told what to say. In fact, they will find out about this post just as you do, through my site, a Google search, and social media.
As an influencer in the automotive industry, they reached out to me and asked me if I would be interested in working with them. I asked them to send me one pair of shoes from each collection, and if I liked them, I would wear them and get behind their product. So here we are. They passed.
Nobody likes to pay full price. Especially me. Especially online! You can get a 10% discount for your first order by going to their site and signing up for their newsletter. But I told them my fans deserved better. I twisted a few arms, threw a few wrenches, and got them to create a special coupon code just for you. Here it is:
Use it well. Do me a favor, though. When you post a photo of your new Goodyear kicks, don’t just tag their Facebook or Instagram accounts. Tag me, too. I’m @ChrisDukeTV on all social media. Tag Motorz TV as well on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. We’d all love to see what you ended up with!
