Mel by Melissa Competition


The jelly shoe. The waterproof and often rather sparkly sandal your mother would make you wear in the sea when you were little. For kids, they’re practical. But for adults (and for the more fashion-conscious child), you are unlikely to want to stray too far from the beach whilst wearing them!

But thanks to Mel by Melissa, conceptualised in S/S11, jelly shoes have been updated, modernized and are totally scentsational (yep, some of the shoes are fruit scented!). Mel is the fun and flirtatious diffusion line of the Brazilian brand Melissa,  responsible for reinventing the practical jelly shoe into a quality, everyday staple, with the purpose of brightening your day and sweetening your stride.

See our Mel by Melissa best picks below:

The flip flop style Mel Citrus sandal in black or pink is perfect for the beach (and also great for the unpredictably wet British weather).
