Altra sent me a pair of DELILAHS to review and they are also going to give a pair to YOU!!! I have been wearing these shoes for the last few weeks for everything from running to kickboxing to going to Costco and overall I can tell you honestly that my feet are in heaven in these shoes. Added bonus is that they have purple on them (or pink if you want) and it’s the little things in life like this that make everything so great.
Altra is known for their drop zero specialized shoes and you can hear all about the amazing benefits of drop zero here:
Like all of Altra’s female shoes, the Delilahs are designed specifically for the woman’s foot. They are a minimalist shoe. I am really enjoying using them on all of my training runs, I haven’t raced in them yet but I can’t wait to try them out in my next half.
I was a little worried to run in the cold or in areas with rocks with these shoes but in both circumstances the Delilah offers a great protection and they are very durable.
They only weigh 6.5 oz which means you aren’t carrying as much weight around as you would with a normal running shoe which for me =more energy used towards speed!
I have loved my previous Altra running shoes and I am in love with the Delilahs! Hope you win!!
Giveaway will end on March 24th, 2012.
PS Men, you can enter in to win the SAMSON!!!

I would love to win! I need a new pair of running shoes.
I always love a new pair of shoes!!
I want these shoes! I need them because I just trained and ran a half-marathon, and my shoes are worn out!
I always need a new pair of running shoes- they motivate me to get out there and kick some butt.
Oh wow, I love minimalist shoes and need a pair like this! I’ve put a million miles on my old ones and would love to replace them. :-)
Thanks for the giveaway!!! These look like great running shoes! I’d be excited to use them as I am in desperate need of a new good pair. :)
I’ve been wanting to try a pair of the minimalist shoes and who doesn’t love free shoes! :)
Jordan @ food, sweat, and beers
I’d love to try a pair as I just started running and could probably use any extra burst of energy possible!
i would love to try these shoes because i’ve been looking to try minimalist trainers but i need some extra support, and these seem perfect for that!
I would LOVE to try these shoes in a 5K. I’m a running beginner and recently ran TWO miles without stopping. I realize most of your readers are way past me in terms of distance, but I’m super pumped about my progress!
I have been looking into this type of shoe to try out. I have not found the perfect running shoes yet maybe these are them!
I would def use them for coaching my lacrosse team and running at practice! Awesome giveaway!
I want a new pair of Altra’s because I have always wanted to try minimalist shoes!
first of all I wrote my comment on the wrong blog post of yours… i love reading them.. here it is again
I wish I could figure out how to send you a photo of my running shoes at the moment. My pinky tow is coming out the side cause I love them so much and hate breaking in new shoes! But the time has come! I recently have been out demo’in some new shoes and would love to have a pair of these!
I also tweeted… on the wrong post… so here is the “i tweeted” :)
Literally just signed up for my first marathon today and I want a fresh pair to train with!
Those look awesome! I love super light running shoes and am always looking for new ones.
I think a 10K would be a great distance for these!
I’d love a pair so I could hit the soft dirt trails that are about to open in my area soon. Also because if I win I can stop telling people that I never win anything.
I NEEf these shoes!!! ;) they are cute and my current shoes are trashed!!
i really need them, because i wanna run to lose my fats after pregnancy((((
i hope i will win them and start to run everyday for 1 hour.
i would love to try a pair of zero drop shoes – and if these are janae approved – they must be awesome! oh, and definitely a marathon… once i get used to the drop :)
I’d like to win because I’m curious about how walking/running in zero drop shoes feels. I have no idea what distance I’d run with them since I’m not a runner, but I have a feeling they’d make me start exercising at least from time to time. :)

Katherine @ Neon Blonde Runner
I’d love to try some lightweight shoes!! Thanks for the opportunity :)

These shoes are so sweet and sassy and I’ve been dying to try a minimalist shoe!!!! I’m running the Philadelphia blue cross broad street run (the country’s largest 10 miler!) on May 6th and it would be a perfect race to try them out!!!!

I would love to get a new pair of running shoes to help me reach my goal of a PR half marathon this year!
I would LOVE to win these. I just finished my first half this past Sunday and I am hooked! Indeed a new pair of shoes!
Cute shoes!! I would like a pair of Delilahs to alternate with my other running shoes. I am working towards an ultra (hopefully) so I’m increasing my mileage. Alternating shoes would help me prevent injury…I don’t want to get injured!! Do you think they would work as a half marathon racing shoe?? =)
I am in desperate need of some new running shoes! And I have been wanting to try minimalist shoes for some time now. I’m going to train for another half in May, and these would be perfect!
ps–CONGRATULATIONS on your pregnancy, I haven’t been blogging or catching up in a while so I am just finding out.!
I have gotten more serious with my running over the last several months, to the point that I signed up for my first mini-marathon in april…YIKES!!! But with that comes alot of training and well my old/current shoes just aren’t doing the trick anymore, so a new pair of running shoes would be GREAT to help my training for this!! :-)
I would love to win a pair of the Delilah’s for my wife. She would love to have these for a half marathon.
I would LOVE to try these for a 5K!!
I have tweeted about the giveaway as well.
I would love to win a pair of these. I’d love to try Altra’s for my long runs or for a half-marathon.
I would love to try these shoes because they look so cute! and I would use them for runs under 10K.. I have a the Merrell pace gloves but they may be TOO much of a minimal shoe!
I would love to try the Delilahs for CrossFit. In CF it’s all about having zero drop shoes for lifting. :)
And of course, I’d try running in them too!
Running my first half marathon post-baby this April and those shoes would be perfect to PR!
I’d love to try these, I’m stuck with “traditional” shoes and would love to try a minimalist shoe!
I would love to try them out for my first half marathon in June!!
Running the salt lake half. my feet hurt. my shins hurt. want a good shoe and it’s FREE!
I want those shoes! I would prob. enjoy them the most for my 5 mile route! :)
fave distance to run: definitely 10 miles or so. race? 5K!
I’d love to try these shoes! Maybe for my half this June!
Id love these shoes for my second half marathon this summer!!!:)
Would love to wear these for my first 10k which is coming up in a month :), just started running a couple months ago :)!!!!!
I would love to try new zero drop shoes! Maybe a short recovery run to begin with and build from there.
I would love to try the deliah’s! I run in vibrams now and love them but looking to try something else that might not be as minimal as the five fingers.
I would LOVE a new pair of shoes to try out while running this spring.
mmmm…I’ve been dying to try these lovely Utahn invented shoes… Yay, Golden! I would love to have a pair to do my favorite 10ish miles around Ivins, UT when I go there on spring break. Yay, Spring!!
nothing is better than getting new running shoes! makes you feel like you can run forever! definitely use these for my next half!!!
I would kick some major butt in any distance with those beautiful shoes!
I’ve been wanting to try a pair of minimalist shoes!
I’d totally shoot for a Half in those–not too short, not too long of a race ;)
I will be honest, I would love to win a pair of these shoes because they are super cute!
Ooh I love minimalist shoes! I’ve worn my out from wearing them so much haha so I would love to win this! Plus March 24 is my birthday, so it would be a really cool birthday gift! :)
I would LOVE new pair of Altra’s because I just started my running routine again. I was out of whack for a few months and my body missed it! I’m back in the game and need a new pair of kicks!
I would like to run my next marathon with them. They look pretty cool!
I would love to try a light weight pair of running shoes and would love to try them for my first half!
25 years ago I taught my daughter to run and we ran together- a wonderful time together then 10 years ago I had to switch to negative/zero type shoes due to toe problems (Brinkenstocks and nothing else). THEN – my daughter told me about the zero drop running shoes! I checked it out with my PT and Dr and it’s a go! Perfect! There is a shoe that is now made so I can run again! I would love to be able to run again with my daughter for she continues to be a serious runner. If I had a pair of the Delilah’s – I could run again! and not only run with my daughter but with my granddaughter too. It would be so grand if all three of us run together….. family – running.
I’d love to have a pair of cute new running shoes!! I have been wanting to try some minimalist shoes!
I’ve recently started running and I’m beyond excited to run a 5k in Pittsburgh in April! I would love a pair of Altra’s because they are light weight and my other pair of running shoes need to be replaced very soon! :)
I am running my first marathon in two months and would love to transition to a good zero drop shoe before the marathon.
I would love these to test out minimalist shoes for the first time. I’d probably try them out on a 5K before going any further!
I also tweeted about the giveaway @MandaRuns131
I’d love a new pair of Altra Delilahs because I’m currently in the market for a new shoe. Leg pain took me out of running for 18 months (and thrust me into physical therapy for 3x a week for 6 of those months). Although I’ve been running again for a couple months, I’m still looking for a shoe that doesn’t result in leg pain. I’m hoping that a minimalist shoe will do the trick!!
Oh, and I’d love to run my next half marathon in them and break my current PR. Fingers crossed for a sub-1:45 next time!
I would love to win these shoes. I need new running shoes as my current ones are starting to hurt my feet and are pretty worn after wearing them for nearly 9 months, but it seems like every paycheck some new bill or something happens that requires me to spend shoe money on something else, so I keep having to say, next paycheck.
I’m newly pregnant and planning to run through my pregnancy! I want to support my body as best as I can, and will have plenty of extra weight on board without adding more from my shoes. I’d love to try the Deliliahs!
I would want them because my nikes I have been wearing have actually given me a blister on the the bottom of my ring (? appropriate for toes?) toe. I would love some new kicks!
I would love to give them a try. I’ve been wanting to give minimalist running a try, but cant justify buying a pair of shoes without my usual support . I would love to break them in for before my half marathon in June!
I would love to try these for my half-marathon training! I’ve also heard zero drop is good for strength training, so I’ve been looking around for a good pair.
I am currently running in a pair of Saucony Kinvaras and would like to make the jump from low drop to no drop. I would use these shoes (the Sampsons) for every run up to the half marathon distance.
Posted a link to the giveaway on FB.
I recently discovered your blog and love it. I’m a stay at home mom with three kids and you’re motivating me to become a real runner. With these shoes I would run a 10k, that is my first goal.
I would love to use these to train for my first 1/2 marathon. I’d love it! Puh-lease pick me to win!!!
I am finishing up Couch 2 5k and am looking to run my first 5k as soon as I can build up some speed.
I have been dying to try a minimalist shoe! I would use them for my first outdoor run of the season, since the sun is coming up earlier and setting later!
Oh pick me pick me pick me. I need new shoes because I am going to be training for a full marathon. My first! A new pair of kicks would definitely motivate me. Especially since they are pink and purple. love love love that!
I may not run the race in them but they would be PERFECT for my training!
OOOOHHH I hope I win
I hope I win I hope I win I hope I win.

I NEED a new pair of shoes and have curious about minimalist shoes. I’m getting ready to start training for my first 10K and it would be interesting to try them out for that.
Elizabeth @ Chocolate Drops and Pearls
I really need a new pair of running shoes because I just started running and I am preparing for my first 5k with my Dad. Wish me luck :)
I’d love to win the Altras. I’m really curious about minimalist shoes and would like to try them out.
I would love a new pair of shoes! I’m training for my first 5k and these would be perfect!
Jess (Will Run for Cheeseburgers)
I would love to try these shoes! I’ve never ran in minimalist sneakers and think these would be great to try.
While I don’t NEED a new pair of shoes yet.. I so desperately want one! I’m a newbie runner so my favorite distance is the 5k (I’m managing :) )
I could use a pair of lightweight shoes for racing, and these would be great for my upcoming hometown 8k!
Danielle @ Dani Cakes
After reading Born to Run I really wanted to try barefoot running. Only I don’t want to get the stares that come with it, nor do I really care to run the Vibram shoes. I like the idea of Altra’s shoes. Natural, but still shoes. And I must say that I’m really liking the colorful laces that come with them!
My stroller is getting heavy with my 28 pound 18 month old! I could use a decrease is weight anywhere I can take it!
I would run my upcoming Rutgers 8k in them
Jenna @ Spinach In My Teeth
I love running, but can never seen to find the right pair of shoes for my feet. I always get shin splints! It’s time for the right pair of running shoes and these look like they might just be the ones ;]
I only own one pair of running shoes, it would be sweet to have another pair to rotate through. I have run several marathons because I like the challenge. However, I would love to run a half in those shoes because halves are so much fun!
Ohhhhhh’ I have never tried Altras runners and my current Sauconys are getting worn! I would have to say my favorite running distance is 8 miles, seems long and satisfying without too much of a time commitment- so my perfect run in them would be 8 miles. =D
I am about to run my 5th half marathon in a few weeks, and then it’s time for some new shoes. I would love to give minimalists shoes a try. And my favorite running distance – obviously, 13.1 :)
Siobhan @ SiobhanMcCarthy.ca
I reaaaaallly want a lightweight shoe to train in! And these look like they would be perfect. I would start out with smaller distance and see if my feet could work a half in them.
I’d love to own a pair of altras because they are made especially for women and they have a wide footbed – I haven’t been able to wear lightweight womens shoes because wides just aren’t made in racing flats for womens! Would be especially nice to race in a girly shoe instead of having to wear mens shoes all of the time.
I tweeted! https://twitter.com/#!/RunningWTG/status/182977709109030912
I feel like I’ve been stuck in the same shoes for over 2 years, but am hesitant to try something new. I’d love to give these a try. And for me it’s a no brainer on the running distance – I love half marathons, so it’s definitely 13.1 miles!
I would love to try out a pair of minimalists shoes!
Would love a new pair of running shoes! I’ve never tried minimalist shoes before but am a firm believer that there should be a first time for everything :)
I’d love a new pair of running shoes since we are a single income family, and running shoes get very expensive:)
I need some new pumped up kicks to run in!
I would love to win these shoes! I have never tried a minimalist shoe and am dying to see what all the hype is about!
I would love to wear their shoes to train for my first half marathon.
I want these running shoes because I currently only have one pair of running shoes and they are on their way out and I’ve been looking for new ones!
I need new running shoes! Ideal distance i’d like to run in them..5!
Oh, just tweeted!
I’ve tried different zero drop shoes before and those are way cuter than the ones I’ve previously tried! I like running in zero drop shoes, but my absolute favorite workout is speedwork with zero drop. So fun.
I would love to try a pair of Altra Delilahs. Since I am just getting over a stress fracture in my foot I am trying to find the perfect shoe for me…..and maybe this one is it :)
i love half marathons for races…and then the standard ol’ 5 miles for my regular weekly runs. Someday I would love to increase this but right now I’m proud of myself for keeping to that routine 4 times a week….now the altra’s would be awesome because i’m a broke joke and need to always be thoughtful in my running shoe purchases! Free shoes fit in my budget.
i think these would be perfect for a 10k and i have a few 10k’s coming up ;)
I would love to use the altra’s for training for shorter distances – 5ks and 10ks.
Those are so cute! I really want to try a pair of more minimalist running shoes, but I can’t justify spending the money on them when I just bought a perfectly good pair of Asics.
I love your blog, so motivating!! I have ran several half marathons( my favorite race). My husband and 17 year old son have decided to starting training for their first half marathon, I have had to buy shoes for both of them and haven’t been able to get new ones for myself. I have put way to many miles on my own and am in desperate need of a new pair. We are running the Ogden half , such a great race. They really feed you well during and after.
Would love to try lighter more minimal shoes for shorter distances and speed work!
I’d love a pair- I am running my first half marathon in May, and these shoes would be the best for training!
I’d love to try those shoes…I have been looking for minimalist sneakers…. Not sure how far I would go in then…definitely would start out short in them.
I love my Instincts now and am ready to try out the Delilah’s as my next Altra shoe! And they would be perfect to kick butt in at my first 1/2 IM this summer!
Just tweeted about it too!
I would wear those shoes during my California Classic Weekend…I am doing a century bike ride on May 19th and then a half marathon the next day! After a long day of big hills, I need some light kicks for the 13 mile trek:) And would even sing that Delilah song to them.
I would love a new pair of running shoes! I’ve never tried a minimalist shoe. I think my favorite distance to run in them will be 8 miles.
My current pair of running shoes is at about 400 miles so I am in need of another pair of shoes :) I don’t really have a favorite distance, I just like to get my butt out the door!!!
I would love to try some new running shoes. (my nikes have been hurting my arches lately). Plus, alta is a part of my middle name (close to altra) :)
Going to be running the Portland half-marathon thus oct with my sis and bil, so I need to get in gear training. Still love your blog, btw!!
I just started running and need a good pair of shoes
because I have had my current pair of Altra’s for a year, I absolutely love them and need to get a new pair!!
Whats better than free shoes :) Thanks Janae!
my hubs is obsessed with the altra story and i would love to give them a shot because neither one of us has a pair (yet!).
I discovered minimalist running shoes a year ago and they have changed my life! I’ve been running in trail shoes and they’re a little stiff. I would love to be able to feel the ground more as I run. Plus, after a year of running in minimalist shoes my toes splay more now and I need a wider toe box. The Altra Delilahs seem like they are perfect on all accounts!
I just completed my first half marathon and can’t wait to do another one. I am always looking for a way to train better and run faster! Would love to try these to see if they can help my decrease my time in my next race!
I would love to try a pair of zero drop shoes after all the ITB issues I have struggled through.
I would love them to train for my second half marathon in May! I really haven’t figured out the right running shoe for me yet, and I’d love to try these out. A ten-mile run would be the perfect distance! :)
I’d love to try these shoes! I’ve been plagued by foot and knee problems for years and it’s really hindered my ability to maintain a consistent running habit.
I would love to try these out!
i want the shoes because, i have very hard trouble to run for a long time, and summer coming up and i need to fit in my bikini.
My run happy moment was when I finally realized I truly am a runner, and not just somebody who runs. Its amazing how liberating that is!
I am running the Riverton Half on March 22nd here in Utah and I would love to try Altra’s in my training leading up to this race. Plus any product you you recommend (especially if it is food) is always awesome!!
