Stikii is on a ROLL, Literally.

We often receive emails and comments requesting that Stikii expand their product offering to encompass different types of shoes.  Some have expressed interest in sandals, others in boots. However, the majority of our fans have expressed that they would like Stikii to create an EDIBLE version of our shoes. A little strange? Yes, we think so too. But at Stikii the customer comes first. So Stikii friends and followers, we would like to unveil our BRAND NEW line of Stikiis, made exclusively out of the finest whole wheat bread in the world. These shoes promise to be comfortable, lightweight and the perfect snack after a long walk. Check out the image below:



“Roller” Stikiis, as we like to call them, come in all sizes, and start out at $19.99 – a true bargain! Visit our website to purchase a pair today. We are actually hoping that these shoes will someday make the “Most Unusual Shoes in the World” list. The pictures below come from the website “Cute Design”, an internet design community, and have already made The List.














Hahahahahaha! Stikii sure fooled you on that one! Stikii hasn’t really created a line of edible footwear; it was all just an April Fool’s Day prank, a practical joke to play on our customers. In the spirit of April Fool’s Day, we thought we would tell you more about this tradition.

April Fool’s Day falls on April 1st of each calendar year. Many people celebrate the “holiday” by playing practical jokes on one another. People seem to either dread the day, or welcome it with open arms. It probably depends on which end of the joke they are on.

 But how did it begin, you ask? One common belief holds that during the reformation of the calendar, sometime around the year 1482 in France, the date for the New Year was moved from April 1st to January 1st. The word got out slowly and it didn’t really catch on right away.  Some chose to ignore the change and some merely forgot. Those people were judged as “fools” by others, received invitations to non-existent parties and gatherings, were subjected to practical jokes and often sent on a “fools” errand. This was a way to make those people stand out for being absentminded.

Over some time, this harassment evolved and became a custom day of prank-playing each year. Since then, the tradition has spread to expand over Britain, Scotland, Italy, the United States and more. Because of its widespread popularity, individual countries tend to celebrate the day in their own unique ways. For example, in England, jokes are played in the early hours of the day only. The fools are known as “gobs” and the victim of the joke is cleverly called a “noodle”. It is considered bad luck to conduct a prank in the afternoon.

At Stikii we view April Fool’s Day as a fun time to laugh and put a smile on someone’s face….and to be a bit mischievous as well!  For those of you looking to celebrate in style this year, check out some of these “Classic April Fools Pranks” from :

Can’t Catch This

Tape a dollar bill to the end of the fishing line on a fishing pole. Then hide behind a bush and wait for your victim to come along. As soon as they reach for the money, reel in the line a few inches. Keep reeling until they realize they’re being had.

Tricky Coin

Glue a quarter or dollar coin to the floor or the ground in a busy place. Sit nearby and watch as people try to pick it up.

Short Sheet

This is a one of the oldest April Fool’s Day pranks in the world! Take the top sheet off the victim’s bed, and tuck the bottom end under the top end of the mattress. Pull it down and then fold it back up so that the top end is where it would be if the bed was made normally. Replace the pillow, blanket, etc., and make up the bed like it was before. When the victim gets into bed, they’ll be surprised when they can’t slide their feet all the way down to the bottom of the bed!

Confetti Shower

If it’s raining on April’s Fools Day: put some confetti into their umbrella, close it and wait for the victim to open it!

Door Ambush

This is the most classic and simple prank ever. Balance a small disposable cup of water on the top of a partially open door. Then wait for the splash!

Running Late

While the victim is asleep, reset all the clocks ahead two hours. When they wake up they will panic and think they slept late and are late for school or work.

Chalk It Up

This prank will only work in classrooms that have old-fashioned chalkboards and chalk erasers. Tuck a piece of chalk into the pads of the eraser. When the teacher tries to erase the board, he/she will get a streaky surprise!


Hopefully that list is enough to get you started today! Stikii wished everyone a happy and safe April Fool’s Day. We would love to hear about the pranks you play. Feel free to leave us comments here or on Facebook and Twitter!
