I’ll admit it: my feet are a little sweaty. I don’t know if they’re like that naturally or if it’s caused by the fact that I live in a very warm, humid climate, but it’s the truth. As a result, jellies have never sounded like a good idea to me – rubber against my skin seems like trouble, and no amount of fashionable pressure during various jellies trends has ever made me reconsider that opinion.
Well, the Givenchy Chain Detail Jelly Sandals might finally be what it takes to get my feet into a pair of rubber shoes. They’re industrial and sleek in a way that leather rarely manages to be, and I think that I may love them, if only because they’re so unique.
Normally jellies are overwhelmingly girly and juvenile, so the fact that Givenchy went in the complete opposite direction with this pair is even more encouraging. The modern design is adorned only with the chain across the vamp, giving them a futuristic warrior look that flies in the face of what we all assume a pair of jellies is going to be. They’d probably still make my feet sweat, but I want them anyway. Buy through Saks for $230.
