We haven’t worn plastic shoes since jellies first came out in the 80’s. Now that we’ve given away our age, let’s move on to the present, when plastic shoes have been revamped from cheapie woven flats to footwear that is much more fabulous. We’re talking about Melissa Shoes, the Brazilian-made line of sculpturally luxe fantastic plastic shoes. Yes, we said luxe PLASTIC shoes. Her collaboration with Vivienne Westwood was amazing, and made us want for plastic shoes like we never could imagine. The Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Lady Dragon Heart II is one of our faves. How can you not love these fuchsia/hot pink slingback heels with a red heart on the vamp? And since the plastic smells like candy, it’s like having a Valentine’s Day treat for your feet, all summer long!
And we can’t wait for the Melissa X Jean Paul Gaultier recyclable plastic stiletto (coming in this June black, caramel, beige, lime and tangerine colors!)
