When I first noticed the reappearance of jellies I was very, very excited. They instantly reminded me of my childhood and the numerous pairs of plastic shoes I would flaunt. By far my favorites were the heeled, clear, glitter pair that my mother couldn’t pry off my feet even in bed. But the more I thought through the pros (oh the memories) and the cons (sweaty, sticky, smelly, blistered feet) I came to realize that I was not willing to wear mini saunas on my feet just to feel like a kid again. They are still cute, but not for Florida summers.
