Remember that jelly shoe obsession you had back in fourth grade? Melissa Shoes may have you feeling that all over again this summer. Although the line is not all that new, the Brazilian brand has really taken off in recent months, and the appeal is strong among moms and daughters alike. Although you’ll find these whimsical shoe styles in high-end department stores and boutiques with price points that can range $40 to well over $100, Melissa Shoes also recently launched an uber-affordable line through a collaboration with Forever 21. And perhaps one of the coolest things about the brand is its eco-friendliness. Every pair is made from a non-toxic, recyclable plastic.
