Favorite Things Thursday


I have been going to Key West since I was a little girl.

My parents friends (Hi Susan, Larry and Shannon) used to take me down there with them in their  Bluebird Motorhome. Some of my best childhood memories (and sunburns) were down in the Keys.

Anyhoooo, I love Kinos.

Kinos are flip flips/sandals that are only made on Key West. I have been wearing them forever.

It’s quite embarrassing to say, they are pretty much the only shoes I ever put on my feet.

Well, except for when I get fancied up.

Which is like every 3rd Leap Year.

Up until recently you could ONLY get them on Key West at the Kino store. Which meant I had to stock up when I would go down there.

Then, they got a little more technological and you could call them to see if they had your size and you could mail them a money order.

Thank goodness they now have a website where you can order them.

So when my dog chews one up, I can forgo the 8 hour car trip.

You know the “Jeep Wave”? If you are driving your Jeep and you pass another one on the road…….you wave.

Well, Kinos have the same kinship. You see someone with Kinos on,  you always acknowledge their shoes. It’s just a thing I suppose.

Wait, maybe that’s just me and people think I am a bizarre foot fettish person.


I now have to take a Kino request order from friends and family every time I go down to the Keys. Everyone loves them as much as I do.
