The New Melissa Ankle Boots By Gaetano Pesce Turn Into Sandals

  • Pin it

Melissa and I got acquainted a while back. And I must say (as you may have noticed), it was far from being a warm encounter. At first. As time went by, I began to warm up at Melissa’s charms and slowly, but surely gave into their plastic dreams.

With big names of fashion and architecture on their side, Melissa works on a dangerous combination of style and daring design, combination they’ve never took as far as this time. Working with Italian architect Gaetano Pesce, Melissa has released a very special plastic shoe. Made of interconnected plastic circles, the ankle boots can be highly customized. For it’s at the customer’s discretion that the interconnected circles can be cut off, releasing the sleeping seven different shapes in which the new Melissa shoes can be tamed into. Can you honestly close your eyes and refuse such a challenge? (via)

They are rather bizarre looking but I do think that I like them in a quirky sort of way.
No I would not take a scissors to them, I would leave them be. :)

I really like them, they’re fun. No need to customize them. Hopes though they don’t give sweaty feet!
