Melissa Shoes have landed on earth and given the world a rubber shakedown that’s hard to forget. These fascinating pieces of fashion are doing to the catwalks what Haviannas did to the beach, with the Brazilian designer using reformulated rubber to design a shoe that bends, shines and, ultimately, revolutionizes modern women’s footwear. If seeing is not enough, pick a pair up and get a whiff of their bubble gum scent. With top designers such as Vivienne Westwood collaborating on these shoes, Melissa is already leaving quite a footprint in the fashion world.
