Jelly shoes

I love jelly shoes. They are ridiculously comfy (which people do ask) and I think they look so cool. They are cheap too snd don't get all scuffed up easily. My mum wouldn't buy me any when I was little because she didn't (and still doesn't) believe in plastic shoes. I had such a saga buying them though. I opted for a couple of cheap pairs first; a £6 pair and a more expensive pair from new look for £15. Because who wants to spend money on juju's when cheap ones look the same and they're all plastic anyways. I was all ready to buy the glittery ones from primark too. And then after about 4 wears the £6 ones broke. On both feet. In the same place. I was gutted but assumed it was my feet since they're a funny shape. Then the exact same thing happened to my new look ones! The same place as before. I was actually gutted, my jelly shoe dream was over. 

So I decided to invest in a pair of juju jellies and if these broke, I'd be able to return them. So I ordered these pink babies on Asos. When my size 6s arrived, my heel was hanging way off the back! So I had to send them back - still disappointed. Then I was in Brixton, in a pretty random charity shop and I found a brand new with tags pair of black juju jellies! They weren't the clumpy heel pair that I'd really wanted but they fitted perfectly so I decided it was meant to be. They were just £6 too. 

I decided that juju's sizing was a bit all over the place and went to office to try and buy a pair. They didn't have a coral left in a 7 though. So I went on depop, my new favourite app and bought a pair of lilac ones, which I'd never seen in the shops. They were only £10. They are second hand which I'd usually be a bit funny about but they are so plasticky it doesn't bother me like usual. There are a lot of people selling new with tags pairs as well, so if you're after a bargain pair I recommend depop. On depop I saw a lot of people selling the 7s saying they fit like 6s so it's not just me and my massive feet. 

It's well worth investing in the Juju jelly shoes if you want a pair of jellies because although they cost more they are worth it - I've worn mine loads and they haven't broken. You can see the quality straight away, jelly shoes in high street shops feel like stiff plastic but the juju's feel soft ad wibbly. They are really comfy despite what you'd expect although I've never even tried them on without socks because that does look uncomfortable. It's not a problem - it's not like I don't have hundreds of cool frilly socks. They just feel soft under your feet.
