The ecological shoes of Melissa
Melissa shoes are recyclable and are fabricated using a material called Meflex, a sort of flexible plastic, waterproof, resistant, 100% hypoallergenic and non harmful for health. They also use a material developed by them that look like velvet: the Velvet Meflex. Melissa, committed with responsible production practices, supports social and environmental programs like Casa Mamae, Bem Estar Familia, Plantando o Futuro…
For the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Melissa, that produces shoes for women and children, proposes the Color Smoke collection, that includes comfortable and very stylish flat shoes, moccasins and high-heeled shoes.
