Sarenza Finds First Ever UK Runners to Race for GBP 2,500 Worth of High Heel Shoes!

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwire - Oct. 21, 2010) - Sarenza, the specialist shoes sales website, has already brought its online shoe shop to the UK and is now following it up with the incredible 'High Heel Race'!

On October 9th, British shoe lovers met up in London, where they were given the opportunity to qualify for the final in November. The qualifying runners were then chosen to participate in the final race in the fashion capital, Paris.

It was the first time ever the event has come to British shores, as Sarenza decided it was the perfect time to invite its British customers to celebrate the recent launch of the company's UK website,

Their new UK customers ran their socks off in high heel shoes as if their lives depended on it (or rather they were focused on winning the chance to compete for £2,500 worth of shoes from Sarenza, which the lucky winner of the final will take home!) and 16 qualifying teams were selected to be pitched against 16 French teams in the final.

A spokesperson for the online shoe shop, whose headquarters are based in Sarenza's native Paris, commented: 'The high heel competition has now become an international phenomenon! It is a really fun event and the final in November will be a landmark event with the addition of our new UK entrants. The successful finalists did fantastically running in Pura Lopez and Friis & Company designs, along with many others from the 900 plus high heels from Sarenza'.

However, for those reading this who wish to participate, but didn't get chance to make the selections in London earlier this month, don't worry! Sarenza is offering the chance for them to register online where a lucky dip will select twelve more teams at random to join the British contingent in Paris.

Sarenza has a fantastic selection of shoes on offer, with over 10,000 styles available and over 250 brands, same day dispatch so you don't have to wait around for your shoes, free delivery on all orders and free 100 days returns policy.
