The Melissa jelly shoes have made their way to menswear - enter M:Zero. If you're a fan, ALTER is hosting a pop up shop starting today - March 17th, 2011 at their location in Williamsburg. There are a couple styles: A laced oxford and slip on - both constructed out of plastic and both will set you back $130 a pair.

The women's line didn't have as much of an issue here since womens' shoes/sandals cover way less of your foot in terms of surface area. That being said, there are plenty of colors to choose from so if you're looking for a rainboot/shoe that doesn't look like one - this might be a great option for you.
