REVIEW: Melissa Shoes. Plastic Yet Chic. Recyclable & Rad.




Melissa shoes aka the jelly shoe brand undeniably cost a bomb. 
Hailing from Brazil, it piqued my interest due to its avant-garde designs. 
But the hell? I was like....err it still is plastic
I happened to spot the boutique at Wheelock Place;
got a lot of pretty colours; from pastel to neon....and oh yes, 
the whole shop smells of the Hubba Bubba Bubble Gum. 
You bet every shoes you purchase smells exactly of it..even the box. 


It was mad love when E gave me my very first pair here!
My entire room smells oh-so-yummy 'cause of its (non-sickening) scent.




Product Description

The Melissa Morning + Salinas features the Brazilian swimwear label’s trademark summer style and comfort, coupled with Melissa'’s irreverent DNA, resulting in a distinctive pair of slippers inspired by traditional Franciscan styles. 

Like every pair of Melissa shoes, it is sustainably crafted in Brazil from MELFLEX, an advanced injected thermoplastic that moulds to feet for optimal comfort and fit. And of course, totally hypoallergenic, water-resistant and recycleable.
Melissa shoes are totally cruelty free and devoid of animal products. The Brazilian-based company is totally rad in its recycling of 99.9% of factory water and waste.



E got me the Melissa Morning + Salinas..in blue. It did not come in a red shade else he'd pick it up for me blindfoldedly ..pfft. Only black, yellow, white and a somehow pretentious red (which is actually coral peach IRL, hah! )

Blardy hell , it's SGD110..a pair?!
I wore this pair when we invaded BALI (more on that soon*).
After the trip?

This bad ass flats was just..
E P I C
Plastic? 
I say,
C H I C

When I initially saw it,
I was dead sure that
It would kill my feet; for its price it'd still massacre my feet.
In what way, beats me.
I have worn plastic flats before and my feet turned out to be like ginger afterwards.
Can use for sautéing eh!


Leather softens in time, but plastic won't.
Surprisingly, this pair that gave me a mediocre reaction at first but then
turned the table and made my Melissa dreams a benign experience.


The Melissa Morning + Salinas has a crisscross design;
adorned with that gold buckle with the Melissa engraving.
Love that square gold bar thing, the finish is just luxscious;
(my term for luxe and luscious hehe!)
especially the heart beside label Salinas.
Salinas has established itself as one of the most sought after fashion bikinis in the Brazilian market.
It's adjustable as well..and the flats just hugged my feet tenderly.





My feet did not turn out to be sweaty and sticky when I wore this.
As if I was not wearing any footwear at all.
Not even a sign of a blister; a plus for zilch skin chafing.



The only shoe brand I had the guts to collect was Converse (Chuck Taylor)
and now..uh-oh.
But wait.

Question is..
are all their shoes as comfy as this?
The Melissa Morning + Salinas is a punchy pair...
stripped away the torment of the word plastic (in my opinion).

On a side note:
I am still munching on my words when I said...

This is effin plastic.
Can someone pass me a glass of water to swallow this bitter pill now?






I'm itching to check out the Karl Lagerfeld Collection!
The heels are totally 'lickable'.
