Whenever I wear these shoes out I am greeted by a chorus of 'oohs' and 'ahhs'. They got off to a bit of a rocky start when on my first day wearing them, I walked out the front door and promptly tripped on the concrete stairs and scuffed them. Furious with myself I bent over to investigate the damage and to my surprise the dirty scuff mark wiped away, leaving the shoe looking as good as new.
Melissa shoes are made from a unique, patented plastic that is non-toxic, cruelty-free, vegan and recyclable. They are also made in an eco-conscious warehouse in Brazil. But one big question remains; how comfy can plastic shoes be? After a few weeks trial I can report that they are heaven! No rubbing, no blisters. or any kind of pain at all. Hands down these are the comfiest shoes in my wardrobe. Another plus (and perhaps slightly a little TMI) is that despite being a little sweaty they don't make my feet smell, which is always an issue for me when I am on my feet all day at work.

To sum up my review of the Vivienne Westwood Melissa Shoes, they are brilliant. My only issue now is that I want to buy more.... oops! Let me know in the comments below what you think of my new shoes and if you own any Melissa's yourself!
