Available in 3 colors: White, Red and Black!I never really got to wear the 'Jellies' all little girls wore as kids. I needed corrective shoes and while most girls got to wear 'Jellies,' flip-flops and any type of dress shoe they wanted, I had to have gray 'Mary Jane' shoes or the black and white Saddle shoes... which looked cool with jeans, but not so cool with dresses and skirts, and DEFINITELY weren't the most comfortable. (Seriously, the year Stan at Stan's Shoe Shack gave me the Saddle shoes, I wore my sneakers with dresses. That's how PAINFUL those shoes were)
Make some fashion magic happen by bringing back the jellies! Ankle strap sandals have a clear jelly upper with a low platform wedge heel.
Non-skid sole and cushioned footbed.
Color- White, Red, Black
Synthetic upper, synthetic sole
Measurements approx: Heel 2.75" w/ 1.5" platform.
I didn't get my first pair of Jelly shoes until I was late into my teenage years, when I didn't wear corrective shoes any more, only because there weren't any shoe cobblers that worked with my medical insurance at the time. I LOVED those shoes; they had the 'work boot' style treads, but had a 1.5"-2" stocky heel. The summer of 1997, I LIVED in those shoes. I even made the 25 minute, 1.1 mile walk to my hometown's Blueberry Festival, and then around the whole Village Green in those shoes.
But, as with all shoes, they wore out and I ended up tossing them. Then my CP got worse and I didn't DARE wear heeled shoes.
So, when I was offered a chance to review these shoes, I was VERY excited!
^^Actual Shoes on my feet^^
While I like these shoes, they don't like my feet. I had to have Mama Melissa help me with buckling them, and my feet hurt after about 3-4 hours of wearing them.
However, I like the construction of them. They seem to be made solidly. The soles are thick and sturdy, and the buckles stay connected. I didn't feel like the shoe was going to fall off of my foot.
The one thing I didn't like about them is I honestly felt like I was wearing 'stripper shoes.' I also felt wobbly on them... almost like the bottom of the sole was more narrow than the foot bed.
Disabled people are going to need help buckling and unbuckling these shoes. If they are unsteady on high heels, these may also be a problem for those folks.
This is available from Amazon for $25.00.
Really nice pair of shoes... just not disability-foot friendly.
WOULD RECOMMEND: Not for disabled folks, but for normal people, yes.
