Yo-Yo Hole in the Heel Sandals

When I went shopping last week, I didn’t have time to scope through all the shoes on sale at Maurices. But yesterday I did! And I came away with these Donut Gladiator Sandals for $5.50 (originally $26) and these Tyra stretch croco boots for $9.99 (originally $39).

The sandals remind of a pair of “Yo-Yo” sandals with a hole in the rubber soled heel that I had back in junior high school! And what’s even more ironic is that I recently received this email from Samme:

Hi, Just how old are you!! ­čÖé Do you remember Yo Yo shoes in the mid 1970s?(shoes with holes in the heels) ┬áI’ve not seen or heard of them since. I did a search for Yo Yo’s a few years ago and just came up with some expensive designer brand (no holes!) ┬á Thanks for your reply. Love the site. Found source for knockoff Uggs for my toddler!

Well, I’ve been 29 for quite a few years now. ┬á I think it was the early 80’s when I had my Yo-Yo’s. ┬á Steve Madden makes a similar style with their Champyun sandals

And these Madden Girl Women’s Lamontt Donut Hole Wedge Sandals (on sale for $45 from Amazon)…

Anyone else know of some cool sandals with “holes in the heels”?

The best selection of Yo-Yo sandals are vintage and available Ebay.com.

  1. I, a retired hippy, have the real yo-yo sandals, and will wear them to family reunion to make everyone jealous! The rounded heel gives a wonderful rocking motion to one’s walk.
