It's a Diabetes Shoelaces Extravaganza on Arden's Day

Scott Benner

Watch the video and then I'll explain...

So like I said in the video the cost of shipping is falling to my family, Usually we'd eat the cost but it's going to be a bit much so when I figure out how to do this... the one provision will be that anyone who wants a pair will have to pay the shipping costs - I'll know how much that will be next week.

Here's the next part. On Monday I'll be speaking with some people from Novo and I'm going to try to get them to see how popular the Novo #LaceUp4Diabetes laces are in the diabetes community. My hope is to talk them into making them available on a much larger scale in the future. With that in mind, it would be a huge help if you took a moment to let Novo know, here in the comments, how much you want the laces! 

A huge thank you to Novo Nordisk, my wife Kelly and the great people she works with for giving up their laces for the DOC!

Lace Up 4 Diabetes Shoe Laces Giveaway

Scott Benner


Novo Nordisk's #LaceUp4Diabetes campaign has been a huge success and I don't think that it's a big secret as to why, shoe laces adorn with blue diabetes circles are super %&*@ing amazing!

I was lucky enough to receive laces from Novo last week. My wife Kelly has a pair on her sneakers, Arden has a pair on her purple Vans and I would like it very much if one of you had the last pair.

Entries will be accepted until midnight EST on November 24th. To enter just share this page somewhere on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc) and then leave a comment on this blog post that includes your email address (Your comment is your entry). Good luck!


The fine print: One winner will be chosen at random by Arden using the time honored method of pulling a slip of paper from a paper bag. If the winner doesn't respond to email in a reasonable amount of time, Arden will re-pick. Giveaway is limited to U.S and Canadian residents.
