Jelly shoes are standing the test of time, as all trends do eventually come back in style again.
Since the 1980s, jelly sandals have been popularized by their rubber uppers. With the help of celebrities like Blake Lively, they are now making a comeback onto the footwear scene.
There are countless colors and styles to match every outfit in your summer closet, from slides and mules to the iconic fisherman silhouette you know and love. Whether you want to keep it simple with clear shades, or you want to go bold with hot pink, sunny yellow or electric blue-colored styles, you have plenty of options to choose from. A modern jelly is actually comfortable, unlike the styles that ruled the fashion scene two decades ago – they have plenty of cushioning underfoot and wide straps to prevent blistering.
There have been a number of high-end fashion designers reinterpreting this style recently, but the shoe style is well known for its affordable price point, so there are affordable options available today as well. We’ve gathered the best jelly shoes to buy right now from brands like Stuart Weitzman and Steve Madden so you can get started.
