I’ve first bought my very first pair of Melissa back in 2012 and I’ve just recently bought my 8th pair of Melissa Shoes. Melissa shoes is not a super expensive brand but definitely not cheap either. A pair of flats ranges from $100 onwards and heels can hit the $200 range. But I would say Melissa Shoes is definitely worth the investment. I’ve never yet experience a blister on their flats and I would say Melissa Shoes especially the flats are super comfortable to wear. Plus because the shoes are made of plastic, it’s so easy to wash and dry! And they have a signature bubble gum scent from the shoes!
Till date I own 4 pair of flats and 4 pairs of heels from Melissa Shoes. And am definitely slowly switching my shoe collection to mostly Melissa Shoes.
I usually purchase my Melissa Shoes from MDreams which is the local distributor for Melissa Shoes. You can find the boutiques at Wheelock Place and One Raffles Place. They do have counters at Tangs too. They have an online store too but I felt that shoes are best purchased physically as sizes may varies due to different cuttings in different designs. Spend SGD300 in one receipt to gain lifetime VIP membership which entitles you to 10% off future purchases.
I’ve also previously purchased from http://starave.sg/ where they have a huge variety of Melissa Shoes, Mel Shoes, Zaxy and many other jelly shoes brand. Good service and lower than retail prices but most are Pre Order basis. They do have designs which are not available in Singapore too! So if you’re confident of your shoe sizes and don’t mind waiting, you can shop at starave!
My latest purchase from Melissa Shoes. The Melissa Strips in Blue. I actually wanted the black but they ran out of my size and I really like the design so I got it in blue instead. I do like the blue but I already have a pair of Melissa Incense Bow in Blue. Luckily, they are of different shades of blue so no repeats! 🙂
It’s about 5 inches tall but super easy and comfortable to walk in as the platform is high and the heel is of the chunky type. I don’t usually wear bright colored clothes so it’s good to have bright colored shoes to spice out the whole outfit.
Melissa Shoes have collaboration with designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Jason Wu etc from time to time. I fell in love with the Karl Lagerfeld BlackTie and knew I must get it though it’s slightly more expensive as compare to the usual collection. Check out how cute this pair is!!
And I am already planning my next Melissa Shoes purchase. Just can’t get enough of plastic shoes!
