You Said: No to Jelly Shoes

June 22nd, 2009


melissa-campana-jelly-flat_062009We asked: Would you wear Jelly Shoes?

You said:  No to Jelly Shoes, with a 80% to 20% vote.

Style tip? We admit it - we rocked the Jelly Shoe look in the 80s.  And while we were initially put off by their resurgence, we’ve begun to see that they’re much more stylish than the originals.  We’re ready to wear jelly shoe styles with a twist - such as this ballet flat style with beautiful, intricate webbing.  If this isn’t your cup of tea, we’re also loving brightly colored jelly shoes.  So long as they’re plastic, you might as well go with it and get a shoe in a fun, bright color, like orange or yellow.

Next question: Speaking of yellow, we’ve been seeing Bright Yellow all over, from store windows to the streets.  But what do you think about Bright Yellow?  Tell us, would you wear Bright Yellow?   Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I wore them in the 80’s and I remember the burn of sweaty feet against plastic. It’s a cute idea though, perfect for summer and the beach.

    They might be cute, but all I can remember is as a kid, jellies gave me the worst blisters from shoes I’ve ever received. Just the memory turns me off from them indefinitely.

    I bought the ones pictured here in sparkly gold – I was skeptical but they were so cute I gave it a shot- & I LOVE them. no one can tell they are “jellys” and I tell people they are vegan/rubber shoes and they don’t sound so bad! somehow this new version is made in a way that is comfy, not sweaty, and they smell great. seriously!

    I am not feeling this trend at all. Maybe it’s because this is something I used to wear when I was 6. I remember them making my feet sweat and hurt, no thanks.

    Bought this silver pair in ST Thomas, VI. Get compliments everytime I wear them!! Spent the day on the beach with them, rinsed off and wore them with a sundress to dinner. They look and feel great.
