Kamabuku Slippah Rippah


Remember when we were kids (in Hawaii) we used "Kamabuku Slippahs"...haha. They came in a multitude of colors...red, green, black, yellow, blue...and were thick thick thick with jagged edges. Remember running around the playground and basketball courts? or hot asphalt roads after school? or just ripping them to go to Big Save or Yoneji store..haha. Well my "Kamabuku" memories have recently become a reality, thanks to my bro Isaiah! Look at what he sent me:


  1. Havaianas from Brazil rule in the UK. Good Luck

  2. this too will pass: Yes, I know of Havaianas, we sell them here in Hawaii also. I'm a fan of Reef Brazil and I've been wearing them since my teenage years. The Kamabuku slippers are just a nostalgic memento. They're from the 1970's or even earlier days...haha...and unless I want to give all of Hawaii a good laugh, I won't be using them outside of my home real soon..lol!


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
Proverbs 16:24

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
