Melissa was born 1979 to transform plastic into classic, and classic into extraordinary.
The Aranha model, inspired by the footwear worn by French Riviera fishermen, was an immediate success and has become a symbol for generation after generation.
Melissa is cruelty-free and 100% recyclable. Thanks to Melflex®, their very own PVC, every pair of Melissas is flexible, comfortable and resistant. They know that an extraordinary future is only possible if we are very responsible and take a stand.
Melissa was one of the first brands in the world to create collaborative collections.
In 1983, they launched their first collaboration with the iconic Jean-Paul Gaultier, renowned for his eccentric and avant-garde designs. Melissa products, created with and carrying the signature of big names in fashion, art and design, are accessible to everybody.
