"Melissa shoes look great, smell delicious, and give back to the environment. The shoes are made from big chunks of Melflex plastic, a patented non-toxic, hypo-allergenic, recyclable type of flexible plastic, to form their flats, wedges, and heels. They even recycle last season’s unused shoes to make new styles. The shoes are completely cruelty-free and use no animal products. The factory recycles 99.9% of water and waste, and they treat their employees like gold with above-average wages and extended benefits.
Not only did Melissa pioneer the movement of the fashionable plastic shoe, they are also the first company to apply aroma to their shoes: each shoe is made to smell like the bubblegum of your childhood to evoke happy thoughts. Once you get a pair, the super-comfortable plastic will mold to your feet, waft tutti-frutti up to your nose, and you’ll be keeping plastic out of landfills at the same time." -IDLM
