Do you remember these colorful, pretty looking and sparkling plastic shoes from your childhood? Do rubber boots ring a bell? Sure it is! You would have grown up with some of those who you possessed as a child in the 80s and 90s. Would you not want to relive those memories at a given chance?
To your surprise, the Jelly shoes are making quite a comeback with a full revival that adjusts to today's fashion trends. It is no longer just for children, but anyone can show it off in style!
An absolute highlight under the shoes
The most important thing first - you will definitely feel nostalgic and let the beautiful childhood memories pass again! They are made of plastic (essentially a material known as PVC - although recycled PVC is increasingly being used today). Okay, that may not sound very appealing, but if something looks so nice on your feet, why bother with what it's made of, unless it's harmful, right? And these will certainly not hurt your feet.
These shoes are transparent, they are super light and comfortable and low maintenance - what more do you want! Well, the list does not just end here, jelly shoes are available in bright colors and they look fantastic, whether it's a pair of flats or a pair of block heels or even plateaus. Yes, believe it or not, you will be able to choose from so many different varieties!
Showcase them in style
Are you wondering if these shoes fit your personality and style? Hell, they are jellies, how can they not look good on anyone! Wear it properly and you can wear it in a way that turns your head. Quite a few fashion designers and top shoe brands are becoming extremely creative with these shoes, as they may turn them into a horror in no time.
