Transparent Jellies

Remember having these as a kid? And how you always wanted the ones that came with glitter in the plastic? They bring back so many childhood memories of summer. But these clear jelly shoes are probably also the most adaptive footwear that exists, that go with every outfit and every color as it almost looks like you are bare footed.

Update: I got mine at the Albert Cuyp market in Amsterdam. But online you can find a pair of similar ones here.

  2. Marijke says:

    Oh ja! Ik had ze in het rood vroeger, waar is de tijd :). Spijtig genoeg passen die van mij nu niet meer.

  3. Ive been looking for some that are non-child size for ages, and i still want glitter ones!!

  4. slaja says:

    i had it, and I still think they are cool πŸ™‚ great cuffs!

  5. uhh yeah, need them for this summer!

  6. meels says:

    i used to have those!! where are yours from?

  7. NONA LIMMEN says:

    Yes! Luckily I found a pair of these on ebay in my size (probably two year ago). Last summer I wore them all the time! ♥

    I love the way how you combined them with gold cuffs. Really pretty.

    Ik vraag me echt af hoe je altijd nieuwe onconventionele, goedkope en minimalistische stukken bedenkt om te dragen! Die eerste foto is zo ontzettend mooi, met die cuffs en de nagellak erbij. Ik voel me heel onorigineel, maar dit is echt een geweldig idee dus ik moet zo snel mogelijk op zoek hiernaar in mijn maat, haha! (ik dacht dat ze tot iets van mt 35 gingen?)

  9. KxMxA says:

    they look great with these cuffs. i wouldn’t even think about combination like this.
    and Your tattoo is perfect. i love simple, black pieces. or whole arms in black.

  18. J. says:

    I remember that i loved those shoes although i got blisters πŸ™

  19. Marij says:

    Oh, great! I remember having them as a kid very well ( in primary school we went on a classtrip and i didnt like that because i was quite a shy child. when we went swimming in the afternoon i lost one of my bathing shoes (that is what they are, isnt it?) in a lake and it all felt even more horrible. I probably got new ones when i finally returned home but i can still feel how the shoe slipped of my foot because it got stuck in the mud!)
    Thanks for bringing that up for me!

    Hi, how sturdy are those ankle cuffs? I got a cheap pair from H&M but they bend out of shape.

  21. about the ankle cuffs, honestly, only worn these once, but they are pretty bendable too.

  22. OMG thank YOU! I’ve been looking one of those for AGES!


  23. I remember these i loved them so as kid!! but i love how you simply styled them with the gold anklets?

    great styling check out my recent customized foot wear


  24. Marina says:

    They look so amazing! Like it!


  25. Anuschka says:

    ooh I love the cuffs!

  26. Bani says:

    When I was little, I wanted shoes like this more than life itself and my parents would never buy them for me! πŸ™

    One of my friends had a really cool pair of jelly sandals that actually lit up with red and blue lights when she walked!

  27. loveaffair says:

    I have myself been planning to buy a pair of these lovely lovely jelly shoes, but i would recommend buying them from the officiel creator of them, a brand that my mom used to wear when she was young too…The webpage seems a bit dodgy, but it is highly recommended:

    mixing these shoes with the golden anklets! genious!
    it made it a cool runway look!

  37. Samantha says:

    i had some transparent glittery wedges and i threw them out years ago the most annoying this is i had them as a teenager and my feet didn’t grow anymore SO they are in fashion and could be anywhere in the world/burnt down to ashes when they should be on my feet! a lesson not to ever throw anything away!

  38. I’ve been looking for these on eBay for a while now. Looks awesome. I’d like the ones with no glitter though. πŸ™‚

  39. Advo says:

  55. oh, you fascinated me with the mix of plastic and black nails! a pleasure to see your blog every day.

  56. Manon says:

    Een super toffe blog!

    Die schoentjes had ik vroeger in het donkerblauw. Op die schoenen voelt het ook net alsof je op blote voeten loopt, want je voelt er doorheen haha.

    Laatst heb ik hele mooie exemplaren op de kop getikt, maar ze zijn mij helaas een tikkel te groot.
    Ze zijn zeegroen met glitter.
    Voor een maat 39.
    Je kan ze hier zien en kopen;

  57. Nyssa Jayne says:

    these are so sweet! my friend always had a fantastic knack for picking them up in op shops before they made a “comeback”. i think i would definitely consider some next summer!

  58. Nathan Moy says:

    wow ivania, these are truly adorable!

    i’ve got another ‘fashion tip’ for u and im not entirely sure it’ll apply, but just some friendly advice. once i bought a romain kremer top with plastic shoulder pads (like u can see my shoulders), and when it got too hot, u can actually embarassingly see the vapors from ‘sweat’ or heat build up on the plastic so i never wore it again lol.. so just beware not to wear them on an overly hot day to accumulate ‘sweat’ on the plastics, but then again it prob shudnt happen πŸ˜‰

    do tell me how it goes babes, still loving ur aesthetics

  63. Sharon says:


    I hated these so much as a kid.
    I always wore them to the beach and then all the sand got stuck in my shoes.


  64. anne says:

    Why have you been promoting backstage a lot lately.
    stop you’re getting the good stuff too “known”.

  69. Lini says:

    Oh yes, thanks for reminding me of that childhood memory. I used to have a glittery pair and on holidays in Spain I lost one shoe in the sea and then a week later or so I found it a few hundred meters ahead. It must have travelled for a week and then came back. πŸ™‚ Such a pity that they’re mostly made for children feet.

    Lovely combination. That’s why i got to ask: did you make these wonderful cuffs for your ankles? and if – how did you do it?

  71. Tamina says:
