The history: Melissa is an innovative footwear company started by, you guessed it, an ingenious woman named Melissa! Inspiration for her brand came to her while watching fishermen in the French Riviera and eyeing their footwear. Her designs soon exploded in popularity in Brazil, and the brand soon became sold in many countries worldwide.

Why we love them: Melissa footwear is made from a flexible N? comfortable (and 100% animal material free) plastic that comes in hundreds of different designs. They take ya back to the good old days of jelly sandals, but have a modern look you can wear today.

One phrase: Express yourself through a shoe.

Known For: Melissa plastic sandals, Melissa plastic shoes, Melissa plastic footwear
