Shoe Crush : Sophia Webster Violeta Sandals

Sophia Webster, jelly sandals
I thought jelly sandals were cool as a kid. They usually came in such bright cheerful colors and just seemed like they'd be fun to wear. I never had a pair and I never really thought about wearing them as an adult until I spied these lovely Sophia Webster Violeta Sandals. The updated sleek silhouette, candy colored straps and glitter finished heels lend a charming and grown up feel to this childhood classic. They'd be great for the summer paired with shorts or dresses.

Did you have a pair of jelly sandals when you were a child? Would you consider wearing them now?

For everyone who liked Ji Chang Wook's fabulous flamingo print bomber. It's from Zara Man and available here.

Jellies are not usually my thing, but these are lovely. I like the glitter heel.

Definitely had jellies as a child! I love jelly shoes just for the nostalgia. But they are a bit like crocs in my opinion. Absolutely no fashion statement and I would not choose to wear them. They do make me smile though, and I love seeing people in jellies just because it reminds me of my childhood. The ones above are an improvement on the standard jellies I think, various colours and a heel? Not what were on my feet at 7. Rosemary x

I had lavender jellies as a child and I was obsessed with them! I would definitely wear them now if they are as comfortable as the ones I used to have.

Jenmarie said...

I remember jelly sandals! These are seriously the prettiest and girliest ones I've ever seen! I don't think I could ever wear a pair again though. I'm sure they'd hurt my feet and dare I say, even make them stinky!

Juju at Tales of Whimsy.com said...

I LOVED them when I was a kiddo. I totally had several. My favs were neon pink. Ironically neon pink and now jellies are back. I would totally wear them with pride. I would probably want a plain clear pair though.

Thanks for putting this adorableness on my radar. I had no idea.

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

Oh YES, Rowena!!! I totally saw a little girl wearing a pair at lunch the other day and was thinking, "Awesome, they're back!" SOOO cute. I don't think I owned them as a kid. My mom wasn't always into the trends somehow! lol I totally want some now!!! Nice find!!

Lady Lilith said...

Nice sandals. My mother always made sure we had a pair every summer growing up. She said they were the best to get to and from the pool. :)

Leslie said...

So cute! i love the pink;) and they remind me of growing up in Southern CA (we all had jellies!)

Mai said...

Those are so cute! I haven't owned these since I was a toddler, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to wear them again ^^;

Hoda Katebi said...

Not gonna lie, when they started trending last year/this year (?), I was like "AWW HELL NAW". But these things are actually kinda cute! I remember wearing them as a kid, but it's when you see adults wearing them that it kinda gets weird. I would definitely consider wearing them though

Julie Khuu | Haute Khuuture said...

Awww I loved these as a kid, my lil niece was just running around in a hot pink pair yesterday and I wanted to steal them! So fresh for summer!

Thank you for visiting my blog doll, would love to get your thoughts on my latest design!

Peace. Love. LOL!

Jelly sandals!! I haven't seen any of those in awhile. Haha.~ I don't remember wearing them when I was a kid. I don't know if I ever would wear them now as an adult. xD
