Tiki Heels

(posted from the Tiki blog of Humu Kon Tiki)

Apologies for the bad pun, let’s just blame it on Daylight Savings-induced grogginess. So, I’m a shoe girl. I fought it for a long time, but at some point, I turned around and I had them in the dozens. Even with the 50+ pairs I have at the moment, I feel like I’m exerting some really fine restraint. None of my shoes are more tiki than my Lucky Lou tiki heels. Lucky Lou has a bunch of pinup girl-style shoes, with all sorts of imagery that speaks to the rockabilly set. If you’re looking for something more traditionally feminine, there are some other lovely tropical motifs. The shoes are much more comfortable than they look, and while they’re pricey, any good shoe girl will tell you that fine shoes are an investment. In what, I don’t know. Just go with it.
