  2. Definitely the Botines! They look so comfortable, coupled with your blue jeans and fisherman’s sweater – a cosy start to November!

  3. BOTINES !!! Black are lovely !!! Best giveaway !!! Thanks for the chance to win from western australia 💛💚💛💚

  4. Gosh, it’s hard to select just one, but I love the Botines and Chinos for Women, and pretty much all of the Kids Shoes. My Girls would love a pair of those, especially the pink one’s.

  5. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Botines! Been coveting for a while now – crossing my fingers! His cobalt leather is stunning too.

  6. I got a pair of his shoes about 10 years ago in Mexico City! They are all so beautiful. Happy to see him succeed. I love the Botines!

  7. I have been admiring the botines and Brazil for a few years now. Just could not afford. I would wear the botines EVERY DAY… love them in black or navy blue. This is such an amazing giveaway…I’m feeling lucky✨⚡️🔮⚡️✨

  8. the brazil lace-ups are INCREDIBLE.

    i will say though: there is a photo where he’s making shoes, and on his work table there is what looks like an open-heeled, short version of the botas tejidas. if he offered those, i’d buy them in a second.

  9. The Botines are absolutely perfect!! So great for lounging around, but easily taken around the town as well. Such wonderful craftsmanship + a great mission of them as well!! Thanks for hosting such a grand giveaway :)

  10. How unbelievably beautiful is Sr. Medina’s work? It’s so endearing & honoring to know that his excellent craftsmanship is a proud product of a fellow Mexicano. I would be most appreciative of a chance at a pair of his Cholas.

  11. Oh my goodness, Ricardo’s breathtaking brown botines are just dreamy. It’s funny because I was just major hinting at these as a Christmas present to my darling boyfriend, but going back and doth about if the price is practical. I’m sure he would just love if I won them instead ;) anyway, the shoes are gorgeous and you wear them beautifully. I would love to be a winner of this giveaway. <3

  12. Oh wow! I think they are all magical and lush. My favorites I think are the Botines in natural brown, that rich earthy color just like the ones your wearing. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  13. I completely love the BOTINES. The ones you are wearing. Love them. I am now putting those at the top of my list for wants!!

  14. Oh my goodness the Brasil sandals in cobalt blue are heavenly!! Incredibly beautiful shoes, I would give my right arm for a pair! X

  15. Oh! WOW! So excited to have these amazing shoes brought to my attention- they look really really great. Definitely going to order a pair for my kiddo! If I could choose one pair for myself, I think it would be the Brasil in natural brown… Or cobalt… Or natural brown… Or… Oh I don’t know! The Tejidas look so cool too!

  16. Oh my goodness what a chance!! I am truly so excited about this. Ive been wanting a pair to call my own for years, just havent been able to yet. I love the black botins and the cobalt blue brasils. I have so many outfits i have invisioned wearing with them. Such gorgeous, unique, special shoes. Thank you for the chance. Xoxo.

  17. Hands down favorites are the TEJIDOS! The attention to detail & design is original and spectacular. What beautiful, authentic craftsmanship.
