File these new shoes of mine under " the perfect Xmas Gift".
When Melissa announced their collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier all magazines and blogs went crazy, remember? I went crazy as well but I never thought I'd be lucky enough to get a pair. That was until I found the precious black box waiting for me at home!
Melissa shoes are really unique for many reasons but mainly because they're (well, obviously) plastic and eco-friendly. What's more important though is that Melissa products have been eco-friendly for about 30 years and it's not like the company now started supporting the new trend.
Melissa uses eco-friendly "mono-materials", there's no waste during the production and all shoes can be disassempled and recycled. Plus, they're cruelty free (yay for no animal products) and the makers work in very good conditions.
As for the pair I got I can assure you that they 're very comfortable despite the thin heel and the straps. Now I only need to decide if I'm going to wait for the summer to wear them with bare feet or if I should start wearing them now with opaque tights. Hard decision!
