About Hot Stiletto

About Hot Stiletto

Hot Stiletto was founded by Vicki Kelley in 2011. It’s a member-based social shoe club that was created to bring together women of various educational, career, and social backgrounds with the premise of celebrating and uplifting the sisterhood of women through the love of shoes.

By establishing this organization, the founder realized the urgency for awareness and support of domestic violence in the greater KC area. Because of this, the HSSC (Hot Stiletto Shoe Club) transitioned from a social club, to a community outreach organization providing assistance, increasing awareness, and facilitating programs through the local domestic violence abuse shelters.

I am proud to announce that Hot Stiletto Foundation was established in November 2014, as a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. This achievement allows us greater opportunity to support the community outreach programs Heels can Heal, Sole 2 Sole, and Look The Part, developed to connect with victims of domestic violence in the Greater KC area in an effort to empower, encourage, and support the transition of abused women.

Over the years our membership has grown to be an eclectic force of sisters, each dedicated to our club and now our mission. As a member of Hot Stiletto,  your contributions and involvement has made a significant difference in our presence as a respectable organization, our work in the community and our ability to bring women together in support of our sisterhood. It is with this loyalty and commitment that we are honored to extend a true beneficial membership opportunity to the women of Hot Stiletto.

About the Founder

Vicki Kelley is the CEO and Founder of Hot Stiletto Foundation. She began her organization on the premise of providing an opportunity for women to build a sisterhood through the love for shoes, while striving to inspire, support, uplift, and encourage each other. Soon thereafter she realized a more devastating impact on women that needed a voice and quickly transitioned her mission to supporting and increasing awareness of domestic violence abuse.

​​Hot Stiletto became a 501(c)3 in 2014 changing the dynamic from just a social club to a community outreach organization providing assistance, increasing awareness, and facilitating programs through the local domestic violence abuse shelters. For over six years, Mrs. Kelley has committed her time through speaking engagements, educational seminars and various community events towards that purpose; creating programs such as Heels Can Heal which enables an opportunity to engage with the victims to discuss, reflect and share experiences among women who have been directly or indirectly affected by domestic abuse.

Today, Hot Stiletto has over 400 members and hosts one of Kansan City’s grandest annual galas to assist the women and children as they transition into a safer environment.​
