The cute, comfy jelly shoes we know Melissa for are about to get even more adorable. In a new collaboration, this time with the worldwide-popular BT21 characters that are created together with k-pop group BTS, we get five new Melissa x BT21 products that can be customised with the fan-favourite characters.
So for those who’ve always wanted to have a little piece of RJ, Chimmy, Koya, Shooky, Mang, Tata and Cooky on you all the time, now you can, with shoes, slide sandals and bags dedicated to the formidable line-up. The collection officially drops at Melissa stores on 15 October — but you may pre-order your wear ahead of the launch here!
As you may have noticed, slide sandals are always popular this side of the world, so you’ll want to bare your toes in style here. Three of the Melissa Beach Slides — in blue, pink, and black — sport faithful appliques of the star characters across the wide strap, while the cushioned sole is embossed with all of them, including 8th character Van. A fourth slide style sees a colourful all-over print of the BT21 LINE Friends on the strap.
Lace-up sneakers can be found in the collection as well, in Melissa’s Classic Sneaker style, made with their signature MELFLEX™ PVC material. The three colour options here include either contrast shades of blue with a black sole, or white with a pop of pink at its base, and alternatively, a translucent grey with a skeleton sole. What’s fun is that you can pop on BT21-style shoe accessories on the laces — these are sold separately as a set, which is worth purchasing for that customisable factor. The applique set may also be used on the Melissa Keyring, which helps keeps your keys organised.
Beyond the shoes, there’s also the Melissa Call Me + BT21 mini bag, a waterproof number ideal for beach, festivals, and wherever you’re heading to on the go. The functional style is embossed with the BT21 characters on the outside, and features a velcro closure for easy access to your mobile phone and other daily essentials.
