Boston, MA – November 22, 2016 – Forsake, creators of footwear that blend comfort, performance and style through functional design and practical technology, is thrilled to partner with Geckos Adventures, a company focused on responsible travel, small groups, and big adventure, to give away a 10-day Geckos Adventure trip to Japan.

Forsake and Geckos will host the giveaway for one individual to win an all-expense paid 10-day trip, including roundtrip airfare to Japan (up to $1,500), and a Forsake shoe package. Adventure seekers may enter to win online at, November 18th – December 9th, 2016. Entrants must be U.S. residents between the ages of 21 and 29. Winner will be selected at random on December 14th, 2016 and will get to choose their time of travel (through October 2017). And just to sweeten the deal, everyone joining on the winner’s trip will also receive a pair of Forsake shoes!


“Geckos Adventures and Forsake are two companies that have so much overlap,” said Jack Knoll, marketing director at Forsake. “We’re both all about inspiring people to get outdoors and travel. We were thrilled to partner with them on this giveaway because it promotes the kind of adventure we design our products for”

Forsake’s versatile Sneakerboot line is a perfect match for this Geckos Adventure. Forsake’s shoes are a perfect match for touring the Tsukiji Fish Market, the largest wholesale fish market in the world, exploring tea houses in the famous Gion Giesha district of Kyoto, and everything in between.

The Japanese excursion will explore each of the following cities for 2-days: Tokyo, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Osaka. Japan is made for walking as everything is accessible. Although the 10-day trip includes 3 organized group outings, these trips are designed for guests to venture out and explore on their own. Coordinated outings will lead visitors on treks through the Higashi Chaya District in Kanazawa, Gion District in Kyoto, and Dotombori District in Osaka.
