We keep hearing about the fabulous Jelly shoes out there this season. Everyone from Givenchy to Tory Burch has their own take on the revamped Jelly sandal. Remember how uncomfortable and stiff these pink plastic shoes used to feel? It’s a wonder what twenty years of innovation can do to revolutionize the look and feel of Jelly, or rather Plastic. One company that’s been doing this for years is Melissa (from Brazil) http://www.melissaplasticdreams.com/. They have a range of hundreds of styles and colours and have collaborated with designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Alexandre Hercovitch to create everything from Jelly oxfords to gladiators, wedges and even pumps. At upc boutique we’ve chosen to carry a diverse selection of these styles in a multitude of colours. Our favourite, of course has to be the Anglomania Vivienne Westwood collection as featured in Vogue UK  http://www.vogue.co.uk/news/favourites-of-vogue/090115-vivienne-westwood-anglomania-meliss.aspx.

And believe it or not, they are 100% recyclable and completely waterproof. So not only do your feet stay dry, but when you’re done with the shoes, you can chuck them in the bin. (Though we don’t know why one ever would)
