How and Why Jelly Shoes, Anyway?
Jelly shoes were first invented in France in 1946. They enjoyed a resurgence in the eighties (along with the frankly disturbing cultural appropriation of “Native American” fringe T-shirts. They say the past is another country and let’s not ever do that again). But we can and must do jelly shoes. Jelly shoes never hurt anybody.
Though they are beach shoes at heart, jelly shoes and sandals are versatile enough to be worn anywhere. Unashamedly joyous, they’re made of sturdy plastic and available in a dizzyingly bright array of colours. With so many jelly styles going the extra sparkly mile it would be a shame not to take advantage and glitter up your feet, too, whether you preferpumps or a strappy or chunky style.
Hello, jelly shoes. You’re here. That means it’s summer again.
