It's Time to "Get Pumped"

Here's a tip, boys: The way to a woman's heart is through her feet. It's no secret that women love shoes, a guilty pleasure known to cause varying amounts of physical and financial distress. Although TSR typically recommends casual, comfortable fashion for female sports fans, it's always fun to inject a little team spirit in unexpected places. If you love shoes and sports, get ready to fall in love with Get Pumped.




Gina Corrao, a senior graphic designer at Million Dollar Media in Woodbridge, NJ, started Get Pumped by accident. Her office colleague was a diehard New York Giants fan and in celebration of her 30th birthday, Corrao decided to make her a pair of Giants-themed pumps. She did it jokingly, hoping it would be a fun surprise, but little did she know where those shoes would take her.

Corrao teamed up with the girls from her All Girls Fantasy Sports League and made a pair for New York Knicks sideline reporter Tina Cervasio. She did and the Knicks noticed. The team purchased 26 pairs for their dancers and now, Corrao's shoes are considered the "official dress shoes of the Knicks City Dancers."

Corrao's creative process is collaborative and flexible. Customers can create their own design or rely on her skills to transform these shoes into their own personal fashion statement.

Check out some of her featured designs:

    I am a huge shoe fan and these are awesome! If I won, (fingers crossed), I would have to bring some south to the designs. I would kill for USF shoes, but if it had to be pro teams, some beautiful teal and orange Miami Dolphins pumps would be adorable! Love the blog girl..keep it up!

    I would be so "pumped" to have gold USF heels! I would rock them at the first USF vs Temple football game in Philly (even against TSR's better judgement of wearing heels to football games! ;)

    Cheers to this business venture, LOVE it!

  20. If i do not win, I hope Theresa does.

    Buuuut i want to win- why? because i love wearing heels. I would want Philadelphia Flyers heels. They will be the easiest to make because their colors are black and orange.

    Since the Flyers most likely always make the playoffs, and since the hockey season is extremely long, in a great way, i can sport these beauties with Jeans and my Jagr or Pronger jersey, or a cute LBD. Love your blog and I hope hope HOPE i win!

    Thanks! Eileen F.
