What are Melissa Shoes?
Melissa is a Brazilian brand, born as French Riviera-inspired jelly shoes. They were known for their unrivalled collaborations before collaborations become the thing. They’ve previously conceptualized with big names from Karl Lagerfeld to Hello Kitty.
Melissa shoes are made from a unique patented plastic material called Melflex® that is highly flexible and comfortable, and that can be moulded into various designs. Melissa’s shoes are marked with the ox head icon which means they are made 100% of real plastic.
Where are Melissa’s shoes made?
Melissa’s shoes are all made in Brazil by Grendene. They are one of the world’s largest manufacturers of synthetic footwear and have over 40 years of experience.
Do Melissa shoes smell?
Melissa shoes have a signature smell, they not only look delicious they are infused with a sweet, bubblegum scent. If taken care of the scent can last up to a year.
Do Melissa shoes run true to size?
Thanks to Melflex®, their very own PVC, every pair of Melissas is flexible, comfortable and resistant. Melissa Shoes do run true to size. Bear in mind they do not do half sizes and they do not stretch so if you sit in a half size it might be wise to round up.
