Jelly Sandals: BFF’S or Ex-BF?

Is anyone else sick of them yet or is it just me?

Just a few days ago I saw a story on Snapchat about New Jelly Sandals for the Summer ☀️.

Jelly sandals again? I couldn’t help but wonder how many phases the jelly shoe trend could have before it finally dies.

Jelly shoes were birthed into the fabulous generation that was the 90’s. The jelly-ness then came back around 2012, when Tumblr fans began to wear see-through boots and raincoats.

Soon after this brave small group of niche fashion lovers cracked the barrier to the past, regular shoe stores began to produce the classic 90’s jelly sandal styles. As seen below.

Now it is 2017, and new concepts and colours of jelly sandals are still exciting everyone’s minds and wallets.  Jelly sandals now come in gladiator styles, flip flops, slip-on slides, as well as Birkinstock-esque buckle strap sandals.

So, are you still loving the jelly? Or tired of it?
