Best Dressed Below The Knees

Vamp and Sole Shoe Contest

The Vamp and Sole Shoe contest is an opportunity for SEAF attendees to have fun showing off their favorite footwear, participate in the magic of SEAF, and maybe even take home a great prize at the end of the night! This contest is Saturday, April 28th at 10pm only, so don’t miss out!

Participation is easy!  Just bring a completed registration form to the stage no later than 15 minutes before the contest begins and the contest staff will take care of the rest.  There will be a registration desk open an hour before the contest on the exhibit floor staffed with friendly folks to give you a form and answer any questions you may have.

Seattle Erotic Art Festival shoe contest


Shoes are scored by a panel of judges on the following attributes:

  • aesthetics
  • quality of materials and construction
  • how well the shoe harmonizes with the contestant’s clothing

Any shoe made or significantly altered by the contestant will receive an automatic bonus.  The top scoring shoe in each of the three categories (heels, flats, and boots) will be awarded a prize.  The shoe that receives the highest score across all categories will be awarded Best of Show.  In the event of a tie the contestants involved will be invited back on stage and the shoes will be re-scored.


Les Souliers by François Dubeau

Each pair of shoes may only be entered into one category and must be worn by the contestant on stage during the judging process.  The categories (heels, flats, and boots) are genderless and eligibility for each category is determined by the style of shoe being worn, not by the gender of the contestant.  The Vamp and Sole staff have final word on what category any entry belongs in.

Participation in the contest is first come, first served.  When all the available slots are filled, registration will be closed.


All winners will receive abag full of SEAF2018 swag and a VIP ticket to Seduction, the sexiest Halloween party in Seattle, in addition to gifts from our sponsors, Bait’d, TwistedMonkEntheogen Publications, and Club Sapphire. The Best In Show winner will receive a $125 gift card to TwistedMonk’s online store!

And if you prefer to admire those wearing sexy shoes, be sure to get a place close to the stage starting at 10pm on Saturday!
