“Looking beautiful. Feeling fabulous. Expressing your individuality. Making ecological choices. These are all hallmarks of passionate living and they are all at the foundation of Melissa fashion shoes.”
Probably you already know MELISSA shoes. They are identifiable from miles away and they are everywhere! But maybe you should know more about these shoes.
Melissa is a Brazilian brand that offers comfortable, colorful, fashionable and trendy plastic shoes.
Facts about Melissa shoes:
- Made from eco-friendly mono materials
- Can be recycled
- Completely cruelty free – no animal testing
- Apparently they are really confortable and promised that you can walk miles with it, without feeling like someone is eating your feet alive!
“These fashion shoes are truly comfortable and will take you from long days at work to lunch with the girls, all night parties to the most glamorous of red carpet events.”
A lot of Celebs are already using Melissa Shoes: Kate Perry, Agyness Deyn, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Silverstone, Cate Blanchett, Beth Ditto and Kate Moss.
And the well-known blogger – Chiara
Now, let’s talk about what really matters. The shoes are really beautiful, they look great; they make us beg for summer, BUT are they really comfy as they say?
Cause what I can guess is that some of them are waterproof (duh) and perfect to take to the beach, because they won’t get dirty and all that. But I can’t imagine walking with some of them… Aren’t they going to suffocate my feet? It’s plastic!!
Anyway, I really like them and all the philosophy behind it (yes… now that’s starting to matter to people). I would like to know your experience about it… this might be my next “investment” for summer :p
Do you own ones? What do you have to say about it?
Which ones do you like?
Well this was an interesting turnaround! This post was about fashion and summer shoes, but in the meanwhile in the comments, the discussion was mainly about ecology! So the question was: How can PVC be eco-friendly?!
Actually that didn’t even crossed my mind, but it’s an interesting question. So I decided to search a little about MELISSA VS ECO-FRIENDLY philosophy.
Here it is was I found:
Eco Citizen: “Melissa’s Shoes are fairtrade and made with nearly zero waste in production. They are also 100% recyclable and made from a specially patented meflex plastic and a non-toxic and breathable PVC.”
Lucky Mag: “The materials now used in the production of their (Melissa’s) shoes are made from 30% recycled PVC, and a portion of sales is donated to the World Vision of Recife.”
Being 100% recyclable you can put them on a recycling bin when you feel like they’re not good enough for you anymore!
Now, I hope I helped somehow and I hope everyone is enlightened about how Melissa is eco-friendly! =)
Thanks for the question and thanks for commenting! :)
