As a lifelong masquerader with a passion for carnival culture, I came up with the idea for Carnival Kicks while reading through message boards to find comfortable but funky boots to match my costume for Trinidad Carnival (message boards - yes I'm a little dated) .
Growing up in paradise (Trinidad & Tobago) I was immersed in this festival culture; I love music and the out-of-body feeling that carnival inspires. So after being given my 'free-papers', aka fired, and soul searching for what to do next with my life I realized my passion was carnival. I wanted to somehow be a part of seeing it grow around the world, I wanted to involve myself more with other festivals like it. I know first-hand the excitement of an upcoming festival, the readiness, the preparation and then totally losing yourself in the moment. I can relate, and I know the preparation is half the fun.
So to cater to my tribe of free-spirited revelers, Carnival Kicks was born. We design our own line of functional, funky and fabulous shoes. We know what festival-goers need and source products that create that sparkle and adds to your vibe but are also useful while raving and dancing the days away. Whether it’s out in the streets of Port-of-Spain, in the deserts of Burning Man, or wherever the need to let loose takes you.
Somewhere out there is a Carnival, a Music Festival, at any given time of the year! I know what it’s like to lose yourself in the moment and the music. You are our tribe, and our goal is to provide you with quality products, that not only speak to your inner fashion goddess but also provides everything you need to rave on!
