Melissa Compana Jelly Ballet

It is no secret I am not exactly a fan of jelly shoes. However, I have gone over to the dark side. Recently I found a pair of Melissa jelly ballet flats that was so cute I just couldn't help myself. This particular design won the 2009 Design Award for Best Travel Accessory by Travel & Leisure magazine. It is hard for me to describe how comfortable this pair of flats feels on my feet. It is light weight and offers plenty of cushions. Besides, they don't look like typical jelly shoes. I just adore the mesh design; these are just perfect for summer.
This style comes in gold, silver and black. Gold and silver are quite cute; black in my opinion is not as cute and stylish. So far I don't have an issue with slippery or smelly feet. I figure they are cute with light summer outfits and at $60 per pair, I think my wallet will be okay at the end of the day. What do you think?

  17. I love Melissa shoes! These are very cute and I'd go for them totally. I think when it comes to jellies it's better to get a bit better quality, because you don't want some nasty rash from cheap plastic or some such thing. And of course they're great for rainy days too!

  18. those are really cute. they don't really look like jellies, which is good because i think that some of the jellies are very junior high.

  21. I thought those were cute too, until I tried them on. Not so cute on me =P It was the silver ones that I tried on, but I think the gold looks a lot better.
