Melissa x Forever 21 Jellies


Melissa x Forever 21 Jellies Collection

Brazilian jellies brand Melissa has teamed up with Forever 21 on a capsule collection of affordable jelly shoes for spring. Mel for Forever 21 features six styles that will be sold at Forever 21 stores beginning April 26th as well as online (shop it now!). Founded in 1979, Melissa is known worldwide for their innovative use of plastic to create sustainable, fashion-forward footwear.

The Mel x Forever 21 capsule collection is bright, cheerful and cheap (kinda what you'd expect for jellies) with none of the styles topping $22.80. At this price you can afford to pick up more than one pair for rainy spring days. The shoes are made in Brazil, 100% recyclable, and feature an additional insole on top of the plastic to wick away moisture from your feet.

I haven't worn jellies since the '80s and the mere sight of these shoes makes me nostalgic - it's like I'm 8 years old again, running through the sprinkler on a hot summer day and begging my mom to flag down the ice cream truck. I'm thinking of getting these cut-out jellies with a cute bow detail. And you?

I love Melissa's footwear, and this collection is amazing, but you can't wear these kind of shoes in Dallas. Your feet will cook...LOL They are not Texas heat proof ;-) LOL

Melissa shoes are made with a special type of plastic which allows them to breathe and they are super comfortable and my opinion is based on a high heeled pair.

They are super cute. I'm just curious about how comfy they are?? If anyone buys a pair ... Please share if they are comfy!

I have the ballerinas with bow in black and they are great. I have spent my summer in the in Israel and after few days I was able to spend literally days in them since I didn't have any other shoes (hiking shoes don't count :-) ). They wouldn't get sweaty, they were easy to clean from all the dust and I could walk in them into the sea. And they looked quite good with summer dresses for the city. They were really great.
