Hello Kitty and Brazilian shoe brand Melissa have collaborated for a line of PVC footwear.
Officially launched last March 11th, the impressive collection includes three shoe styles: sneakers, sandals, and flats.
There are two models of rubber platform sneakers in the collection: the Be Sneaker and the Toddlers Be Sneaker. Available in pink, white, and black, the Be Sneaker features a Hello Kitty printed back pull, lace-up front, and an adorable Hello Kitty-shaped lace lock.
The Toddlers Be Sneaker is a mini version of the Be Sneaker, but aside from the Hello Kitty printed back pull, the Toddlers Be Sneaker also has a huge Hello Kitty bow décor on its counter, and is available in four different colors: pink, white, red, and black.
There are also two models of sandals in the collection: the Slide Sandal and the Bow Slide Sandal. The Slide Sandal features a large Hello Kitty rubber appliqué on its upper, while the Bow Slide Sandal — as its name implies — has the Sanrio character’s signature bow on the front. The Slide Sandal comes in pink and black colors, while the Bow Slide Sandal is available in red and pink. Amid those slight differences, both models have a flat heel and a padded insole for comfort.
The flats in the collection also come in two models: the Space Love Flat and the Bow Space Love Flat. Like the sandals, both models of the ballerina-style shoes have a flat heel a padded insole for comfort. The Space Love Flat has a big Hello Kitty rubber appliqué on its upper, while the Bow Space Love Flat features a super cute appliqué of Hello Kitty’s bow on the front. The Space Love Flat is available in white, black, and pink, while the Bow Space Love Flat comes in pink and red colors.
All pairs of footwear in the collection are made of 100 percent recyclable material. The shoes’ plastic is made from Melissa’s trademark material called Melflex — a PVC material that’s flexible, durable, and comfortable to wear. Selling from $69 to $135 a pair, all shoes are made in Brazil and are infused with Melissa’s signature fragrance.
The complete Hello Kitty x Melissa collection is now available on Sanrio Online Store.
