I couldn't find a category or thread where these two odd "tiki-ish" items would fit, so I guess General Tiki is good enough.

Whoever said Hawaii was used to sell *everything* in the 50s & 60s was right. Check out this screen grab from an Oasis cigarette commercial aired during the original run of "The Twilight Zone."

The next one is from Sneaker Freaker magazine, an Aussie publication devoted entirely to sneakers. These are the Nike Aloha Dunks. Featuring an earthy color scheme and lauhala weave panels on the upper, these "tiki sneakers" can be worn with dressier casuals more than your hibiscus flower Vans.

The "Aloha" would be a cool shoe if it weren't for the Gawdawful Green

When I was a teen in the sixties, I smoked Oasis for a while. Then Alpines.

Somewhat of a Tiki look to these 2007 edition Vans from the 25th Anniversary of the Triple Crown of Surfing.
