(ummmm… weird but cool)

Well take my legs and call me stumpy! I wasn’t aware that a shoe like this could be made and yet here it is on Karmaloop.

Here are the details including what this thing called MELFLEX is:

Bubble patterned bootie; can be customized by cutting out circles to achieve desired silhouette.

Melissa Shoes are made from MELFLEX, a trademarked plastic which offers improved elasticity, impermeability, and resistance to water. It is also hypoallergenic, odorless, and recyclable.

They also have other color such as black (for those who don’t want THAT much attention) and red (for those who want to get jumped if they are in the “wrong hood”).

Without doing ANY research on these kicks to know this is true or not, it looks like these shoes are named after that racing star…


Put your style in overdrive with the Danica bootie from Calvin Klein. Its luxe suede upper and reptile-embossed straps—elevated with a daring platform and heel—create a racy look that’s sure to quicken pulses, while a rear zipper, lightly padded insole, and textured rubber outsole will keep your pace confident.
