Jelly shoes bring back a nostalgic feeling from the ’80s and ’90s, when chokers and hair scrunchies were the height of fashion. Not surprisingly, jelly shoes have steadily been making a comeback with modern versions created by Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma line, as well as fresh versions from luxury line Salvatore Ferragamo and fast-fashion label Forever 21.
If you’ve been searching for a reason to return to your beloved plastic footwear for a dose of childhood nostalgia — look no further.
Ahead, see our favorite modern takes on our beloved jelly shoes.
