AW10 trend report: Melissa shoes

Melissa’s wonderful rubber shoes just keep surpassing expectations, particularly Vivienne Westwood’s contributions. For next season, the button boots come in metallic sparkles as do these Mary Janes. I am also loving the cherries on the slingbacks – so very poptastic.

And to all those people mourning the demise of seven inch whore heels (guess who has just finished a 1000 word report on the
subject?). What are you moaning about when you have these sexy-but-user-friendly beauties to tantalise you?

    Eh I've never been a fan of the gelly/Melissa shoes. The only ones I'd consider looking at would be the last pair. I don't get the trend I guess :\

    I think they are really cute. I totally adore the cherry ones, but they are plastic…. Won't they smell get sweaty and sticky and rub my feet raw?

    Melissa x Vivienne Westwood just keeps getting better and better. I need those glitter boots bad but I'm not sure that I can wait until next season.

    RIP Whore Heels!

    These cherry ones are amazing. And the glitter boots. I die! I die! Are they available online?

    Shrinky Inky and Anon… They're for AW10 so I guess will be available from August. I'm pretty sure they'll be online, the ss10s are.

    Hmm, I'm with patni – has anyone actually worn a pair of Melissa shoes? I don't get how they could be comfortable, but would be happy if someone could prove me wrong? I do like the look of them.

  11. Vintage says:

    The shoes are actually super comfortable.. Being a flexible plastic, the soles are a bit squishy, and everything stretches to fit you perfectly! I really love wearing mine.

    My feet never smell after I wear them; they're definitely a different type of plastic than the traditional jellies. However, some parts do rub against my feet after 8+ long hours standing, depending on the shoes, but it's been no different than breaking in my leather pumps. If I'm wearing tights though, no problems whatsoever!

    i have 3 pairs of melissa vivienne westwood shoes and 1 pair of just melissa shoes and they are amazing! so comfy and your feet do not smell!

    It's also worth noting that the material they're made from is scented to smell like bubble gum! I have two pairs of melissa heels and they're the only comfy heels I own – love them! I'm eagerly awaiting my birthday for a pair of the Vivienne Westwoods :O)
