YONKERS, N.Y. -- Michele Trommer, of Yonkers, was the winner of the 25th anniversary contest sponsored by San Antonio Shoemakers, the maker of women's sandals the Duo.
For three months, the Texas-based, family-owned company hosted the contest “Where in the World Has Your Duo Been,” asking Duo owners to reminisce where their sandals have taken them over the years in 200 words or fewer.
“I first bought SAS Duo sandals about 20 years ago in Las Vegas on vacation," Trommer wrote. "I remember I had a denim blue pair and white pair. I have been wearing the same style in different colors for years. I was thrilled to walk into my local SAS store in Yonkers, where I was greeted warmly and offered a cool drink and see your beautiful 25 anniversary editions with the silver snake print. Tonight I will wear them to a work benefit in Manhattan at a swanky hotel. They will be my Cinderella slippers as I stand all evening and hopefully dance a little too.”
Trommer’s winning entry awarded her a custom pair of Duo sandals and a $100 SAS gift certificate.
