A beach hangout may seem impossible right now, but New Zealand shoe label whywho's summer lovin' lookbook makes our sunshine fantasies come true anyway. Inspired by the carefree days of summer and the uprising youth of the '60s, this really is a shoe collection unlike anything we've seen in the states.

Produced on the other side of the world, but shipped international, we hope to see whywho take off in a big way.
Check out the entire beach-side lookbook of the coolest new shoe brand for spring '12.
