When it comes to vegan, sustainable footwear, few brands can boast the reach and style prowess that Melissa Plastic Dreams can. From collaborations with queen of the anglofashion world, Vivienne Westwood, architecture maven Zaha Hadid and design celebrities the Campana Brothers, Melissa delivers glossy flats, heels and boots that we would covet even if they weren’t made of cruelty-free, nontoxic MEFLEX plastic in eco-conscious factories. As difficult as it was, we narrowed our favorites down to five stand-out styles that we really think exemplify why people love the fantastic, plastic world of Melissas so much. Enjoy!
5. Zaha Hadid + Melissa Slipper
Reminiscent of the fluid lines of her supermod buildings, these perfectly asymmetrical slippers are the work of world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid.
4. Melissa + Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon Heart Heel
Why wear you heart on your sleeve when you could wear it on your shoe? These very rare gems are considered the crowning jewel on the crown of Dame Vivienne Westwood‘s extremely successful partnership with Melissa.
3. Melissa Classic Ultragirl
These ubiquitous Melissas are what made women the world over swoon for the eco-friendly Brazilian brand, so we’re not surprised that they’ve kept this style alive by resurrecting it each season in new iterations from a fuzzy flocked baby pink version with Swarovski crystals to a twinkletoe version inspired by Tinkerbell herself.
2. Melissa + Vivienne Westwood Three Straps
Elegant with three delicate gold buckles, these flats and heels add the perfect amount of sparkle to any outfit.
1. Melissa Campana Corallo
In true Campana Brother fashion, these Corallos are an entangled blast from the past with their 80s jelly sensibility.
