Maybe I was wrong about jelly sandals

Ten years ago, I waltzed into an American Apparel and bought a pair of heeled fisherman jelly sandals made out of a clear, sparkly PVC. My underdeveloped brain failed to consider the fact that the literal plastic, plus the San Fernando Valley heat would lead to some truly heinous blistering. Not only were they uncomfortable, but I couldn’t figure out how to style them. It’s safe to say that my jelly sandals rarely left the closet after their inaugural outing, and I’ve been quite staunchly against repurchasing them ever since.

But recently, a pair of shoes from The Row are forcing me to reconsider my anti-jelly stance. The Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen-fronted brand sent a pair of woven flats down the runway during their pre-fall 2024 show in Paris last September. Already a staple on editor wishlists, perhaps these are 2024’s answer to the mesh flats craze.
