Melissa was created in 1979, when Alexandre and Pedro Grendene returned to Brazil from an inspiring trip to the French Riviera, bringing an idea that would become a national icon and world reference when it comes to plastic shoes: there, was born the classic jelly sandal! Since then, the brand has been recognized for celebrating design through fashion. Melissa has collaborations with renowned fashion and design icons, reinforcing its reputation as the world’s plastic footwear pioneers. Collaborators include Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu, Karl Lagerfeld, Campana Brothers and most recently Fila, to name a few.
Melissa has always maintained sustainability since 1979. Melissa shoes are 100% recyclable and all water used at the factories is recycled with 0% water wastage!
