Step aside, ugly Christmas sweaters — Nancy Campbell wants to change the game.

The resident of Little Qualicum River Village came to The NEWS office on Monday sporting some, well, unique boots. She said they were purchased at a Thrift Store and painted to look, um, different.

There was a method to Campbell’s madness. She wants to change the whole ugly Christmas sweater tradition.

“I want to throw down a challenge to the ugly sweaters of Christmas,” said Campbell, mischievous twinkle in her eye and a smile on her face. “They have had their day. Their reign of terror is over.”

What, pray tell, is your plan, Nancy?

“I’m throwing out the ugly boot challenge,” she said.

Alright, we’ll bite. Send us a photo of your ugly boots and we’ll publish the worst of them. And we will award a $25 Boston Pizza gift certificate the best (worst?) pair.

Email your photos of your ugly boots (at least 8×10 inches at 300 dpi) to: editor@pqbnews.com.

A few tips for your photos. If your face is in the photo along with your boots, all the better. One pair of boots and one person per photo would be best. Make sure you have ample light and pay attention to what’s in the background of your photo — we want the boots to get full attention.
