Celebrities Love…Jelly Sandals

Once an early 90s footwear staple, jelly shoes are making something of a comeback.

Anne Hathaway and Fearne Cotton were spotted wearing them a while back. But the trend seems to be gathering pace with two recent sightings courtesy of Azealia Banks last month and Nicola Roberts donning a black Topshop pair this weekend at Wireless Festival.

The retro, quirky shoes have been revamped to come in a variety of standout neon colours for those who are daring. Or you can keep the look simple by selecting in a shiny black or transparent pair.

From T-bar styles to flip flops to pumps, the jelly shoe can instantly give your wardrobe a colour boost for summer.

Are you welcoming this comeback or does it bring back painful childhood memories? (Blisters, sweaty feet?)

You can buy these jelly sandals from, Topshop International and Topshop US.

    They’re no better than Crocs. Such ugly creatures. “All thumbs” is an idiom to describe someone who’s clumsy. I think there should be an expression such as “so and so is all Crocs or Jujus” to describe a clumsy person.

    I would NEVER EVER wear this. Not even in the grave.It brings back some memories from the old times here in Middle-Eastern Europe….And this times are gone.

    No. Just no, no, no.

    Cringe, god these are so gross. I had a pair when I was really young ended up breaking the strap myself. I would never wear them now, and considering the shoe closets these girls have this is very scary.

    Sorry, but that’s horrendous… It’s very common here in Brazil, the Melissa brand does that since forever… it was “in” 15 years ago but until today they keep showing up once in a while..I hate them

    I remember these being huge when I was about 4, I had a red pair and a sparkly translucent pink pair, by the time I was 6 I refused to wear them because they are hideous, not to mention painful.
    Why one would choose to wear them makes no sense to me.

    i just threw up in my mouth a little. who let them out of the house in those?

    I really hope this trend ends soon, I never liked and never will like jelly sandals, shoes.

    no way! i think they can be quite fun and cute, but they are way too uncomfortable for my taste

    I had clear platform jellies that I was obsessed with. I would rather not revisit that look.

    I hope chunky shoes aren’t making a comeback.

    This trend is wrong on so many levels, makes me shudder

  17. Lara July 10, 2012 at 17:40 #

    Oh God. Please no.

  18. Kathy July 10, 2012 at 17:34 #

    these shoes are simply AWFUL!

    I like the brazilian brand “Melissa”, that only makes plastic shoes but those on this post are scaaaryyy

    The transparent ones look great and I’m glad they are making somewhat of a comeback ; it’s cute, easy to wear and a great alternative to those flip flop we see everywhere!

    But the other ones are quite ugly…

    Remember how we ALL laughed at Angelina doing splits on the Oscars’ red carpet?
    And how everyone is doing that a few months down the road?

    Be afraid.
    Be VERY afraid. (Of the jelly sandals taking over our lives, of course.)
