If you want a scenic escape and are bored with the great American road trip, June 5 is Hot Air Balloon Day.  Whether you want to circumnavigate the globe or just cruise over a vineyard, we’ve got the scoop on the world of ballooning. 

The Telluride Balloon Festival in Colorado is coming up.  For over 30 years, the skies of Telluride have been dotted with colorful hot air balloons.  Weather permitting, over a dozen hot air balloons launch from Town Park on the east end of town and sail down the valley landing about one mile out of town. The balloons launch at sunrise (between 6:45 and 7 am) and bystanders often get to help with the launch -- and get a ride to boot! UGGs are the perfect footwear to have for this event.   With the variable weather, a their Classic Mini Tropical Women’s Boot seems like a perfect choice, especially with free shipping and free returns on all orders when you use our codes. 

Arte de l’envol is held in Annonay, France at this time too.  Share a toast with your lover and say “Bon voyage” wearing shoes by the ultra-chic Boston Proper.  The BoHo embellished flat is haute without being hard on your feet.  Get 10% off your order when you sign up from emails from Boston Proper. 

Danville, Kentucky boasts the Great American Balloon Race this month as well.  Amp up your power, endurance and determination and brave the skies in Nikes.  The Nike Lunar Trainer 1 is currently on sale on the Nike site, perfect for those adventuring gentleman wanting a training shoe. 

Can’t make a balloon outing this June?  The Annual Christmas Day Balloon Rally in Tracy, CA is a great way to reinvent your holidays.  The Chuck Taylor All Star Sawyer comes in a vibrant holly red that’s sure to match your festive mood.  Tracy offers balloon flight training as well and help you maintain a balloon if you have it.  Converse offers $5.95 flat rate shipping on your order when you use our codes—so splurge on that balloon if you’re up for it!

If you’ve never had the thrill of riding in a hot air balloon, June is the month to try it out.  Sate your thirst for adventure and make sure you have the shoes to carry you there.  Use our codes and everything will be clear sailing!
