Bumping because tomorrow is the big day!
A few days more and the wait will be over. Melissa Shoes, the brand that produces funky jelly flats, wedges and a lot more jelly in Brazil is coming to Manila, Philippines. And if the two words "plastic shoes" make you think cheap, think again. These beautiful candy-like fashion items have made it's mark for 25 years--and by looking at the very fashion-forward pairs, we all know why.
But for all you die-hard environmentalists, although made from plastic, the company makes sure that 95% of their raw materials (even water) are recycled. The shoes themselves are recyclable!
Born 27 years ago, Melissa has become a global fashion icon which has manufactured over 50 million pairs of shoes in the past 25 years -- 20 million of which were exported to 80 different countries. From sexy stilettos to fabulous flats, Melissa shoes have re-invented the much-loved jelly, bringing style and comfort to a whole new level.
Before you dismiss the thought by thinking jelly shoes=sweaty feet, check this out:
Melissas are actually made of hypo-allergenic patented plastic called MELFLEX™. All Melissas have a candylicious scent. The shoes are also lined with fabric inside, so when one wears it, it doesn’t feel like plastic!
