Melissa Plastic Dreams are ethically made in Brazil in a “closed loop” system, so there is no waste from production.   The patented plastic known as Melflex is a patented 100% recyclable, hypo-allergenic monomaterial that easily molds to your foot after a few wears, providing a comfortable custom fit forever! Not only are these shoes totally vegan and green, the company recycles 99% of the excess material left over from manufacturing.   It’s basically a win-win situation.

    The Melissa shoe brand itself is awesome. I think the top style shown is awesome. I have 5 pairs from them, all super comfy and there are lots of other designs that they have so before you start hating you should check out the site. Vivienne Westwood is a very specific style but she is just one of many designers that they have teamed up with over the last 20+ years.

    Secondly, being that we are all on this blog for the purposes of SUPPORTING a more environmentally and animal friendly lifestyle which includes fashion, I think these shoes are a great example of that.

    Finally, another great thing about the Melissa brand is that they actually melt down any leftover styles from the previous season and reuse the plastic to manufacture the new season’s styles. So actually unless YOU throw your shoes in the garbage, none of their product ends up in a dump at all!

    I have to have a pair (or two or three) of these shoes. They look amazing.

    These are cute and I like their eco profile. I especially like the flats, but I’m afraid they would make my feet sweat like gangbusters and give me blisters.

    I love their shoes. My only concern is about the materials. I bought 4 pairs when I was in Chile and they all had stickers on the bottoms saying they were made out of PVC.
