Chasing Davies: Shoe(s) of the day - Jelly Flats

Shoe(s) of the day - Jelly Flats

Back in the 80s and 90s I spent my summers wearing jellies in all different colors:

Now, 20 some-odd years later jellies are back, and I even own a pair (peep-toe jellies from Target a year or so ago when the first re-emerged -sort of similar to these - mine are smokey gray color), however a lot different from the ones above.  Jelly flats are fun for the summer and are way updated since the 80s.  Here are some adult, updated jellies that I'd romp around all summer in my 20s now:

Smooth Jelly-Material Flats:

What do you think about the jelly trend?  What style do you prefer?
