Melissa was founded in 1979, with an inspiration straight from the sea. On the feet of French Riviera fishermen we found the embryo that gave origin to the Aranha model. In a short space of time, it became very popular among Brazilians and today still remains one of the most sought after styles. In just the last decade, Melissa produced more than 32 million pairs and is now sold in more than 70 countries worldwide.
A true Melissa icon, the Aranha takes 26 seconds to make.
Their unique smell is one of Melissa's hallmarks. It is a memory trigger: the mark of childhood and adult lives alike. It's part of teenage memory of those who grew up associating our shoes to a significant time in their lives.
Melissa is fashion, art, and design. Sustainability, too.
We're cruelty-free and100% recyclable thanks to Melflex®, a proprietary form of PVC that brings flexibility, comfort, and durability to every pair of Melissas.
