"Moja štikla" ("My stiletto" or "My high-heel") was the Croatian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006, performed in Croatian by Severina.

Despite Croatia's previous entry, "Vukovi umiru sami" having finished 11th, Croatia was the beneficiary of the controversy surrounding the national final of Serbia and Montenegro, in which No Name was forced to withdraw from the Contest. Thus, there was a vacant space in the final, which went to Croatia who had finished just outside the top ten.

The song was performed twentieth on the night, following France's Virginie Pouchain with "Il était temps" and preceding Ireland's Brian Kennedy with "Every Song Is a Cry for Love". At the close of voting, it had received 56 points, placing equal 12th in a field of 24 and returning Croatia to the semi-final for their next Contest appearance.

The song itself was described in commentary as being in the turbo-folk style, with Severina singing about various chat-up attempts from local men, as well as entering into folk-influenced call-and-response lyrics with her backing singers.

The performance featured the combination of traditionally-dressed Balkan folk musicians and Severina herself in a red dress. The dress was partly removed (in a move made famous by Bucks Fizz in their performance of "Making Your Mind Up" and now almost de rigueur in the Contest) during the performance.

It was succeeded as Croatian representative at the 2007 Contest by Dragonfly featuring Dado Topić with "Vjerujem u ljubav".

The song is about high heels and where she walks grass doesn't grow.
