In the 80's, does anyone remember those darn jelly shoes?

I was at one of my groups (an 80's & 90's group) and I remembered my mom kept buying me these shoes and I hated them. They came in all kinds of neon colors. They were girls shoes for I guess the summer. If you wore them in the rain you were likely to fall on your butt. lol Just wodered if anyone else remembered these?

  • Yes, my sister just gave me two pairs for my daughter. They are actually really cute with glitter, but the edges aren't so sharp. I imagine they will be comfortable, not like the ones from back in the day . . blisters everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
