Until today, I didn’t think that it was at all possible to create shoes like high heels simply out of soft plastic. However, I stumbled upon Melissa shoes and they seem to be designed from just that! The shoes are created by transforming plastic spheres in to … Well, shoes. The plastic is manufactured in Brazil and according to stylefrizz, Melissa sells 2.3 million pairs of shoes a year. Vivienne Westwood is the lastest designer whom has signed models for Melissa and little did I know that I actually featured one of those models on youarewhoyouwear a few days ago. Below are my favorite Melissa designs. They are very interesting and diverse and I can’t believe I didn’t know of the designs until today. Take a look:

Melissa also featured a design on it’s Australian site which immediate caught my eye simply because it reminded me so much of a shoe in which Marc Jacobs created too.

I got these booties in October of 2008. They were incredibly budget friendly and since then, they’ve been through blizzards with me, puddles of mud, dirt, cornfields – you name it. They still look brand new, they feel brand new and they’re a delight to walk in. I hope they remain that way :) I wore them out to the movies along with my Marc Jacobs bag but I forgot to include it in the picture. I went out with my sister to see The Hangover which was by far the most entertaining movie I have seen in years – incredibly hilarious not to mention that Bradley Cooper is so gorgeous! Who knew?

& speaking of Marc Jacobs…

One has to adore his Fall/Winter 2009 shoe collection. It’s a fun collection (am I the only one who feels that the base of the shoes featured below look somewhat similar to a clog?  Maybe Mr. Jacobs found inspiration from the clog and built the shoes from there?) and it just screams Marc Jacobs. Here a my favorite picks:

What do you all think about Mr. Jacob’s shoes?  Yay or nay?
