A tropical style all-day sandal with cut outs inspired by the geometric patterns from pacific and melanesian art. With a comfortable 1.5" block heel and breezy open toe upper, this summer slingback was made as a tribute to my grandmother who was born in the town of Gizo, Solomon Islands.

Just received these today in the post and WOW!! I am in love!!
They fit my wide feet perfectly!!
Can't wait to wear them to a High Tea on Saturday. Samantha kindly sent me a pair of these when my original order of the black Makira sandals got damaged in the post.
I think this style is definitely a better fit for my wide feet than the Makira (although I did go down to a 36 in those, where I stuck with my usual 37 in these).
Amazing company to buy from. Now I need all the colours!!!
Thank you Samantha and Honiara Vintage!
They are so comfy and pretty, the packaging with the dustbag makes them feel so posh. I was a bit worried whether I will get the correct size (because usually even 35 EU is too big for me), but I did the quiz (got 36 EU for these, that's why I thought they will be waaay too big), but to my surprise they fit perfectly, no awkward free space, no slipping, so if you are in doubt about the sizing, I
strongly recommend the quiz. Also the e-packet shipping was kind of fast and I paid no import fees (I live in the EU). 10/10 recommend, will buy from Honiara or Charlie Stone in the future as well!
These shoes are honestly the most comfortable I've ever worn! I wore them for a full on 12,000 step day at work without breaking them in! They feel soft, are kind to feet with no rubbing or sore parts! Even with back issues, I had no problem wearing these all days. The quick release hook instead of fumbling with buckles is great too. I'll definitely be getting them in more colours and trying the other styles.
I'm always on the look out for a comfortable heel that I can wear from day to night that also suits my vintage style, and the Gizo ticks all of those boxes perfectly.
I really love these shoes! If you want to purchase, consider to size down because they run a little bit big.
