The unpredictable weather we’ve been experiencing lately means you might have unexpectedly ruined more than a few pairs of shoes. The latest summer shoe trend, jelly shoes, will help you confidently leave your house without worrying that it will end up pouring. Brands like Celine and Gucci have released atas jelly sandals. Adidas and Crocs, meanwhile, have opted for a modern twist on the childhood favourite, in the form of sneakers and clogs.
Adidas Superstar Jelly Shoes
It’s been a big year for the Adidas Superstar. Everyone from Miuccia Prada to Jonah Hill has put their own spin on the sneaker icon. No worries if you didn’t get your hands on the all-white Prada x Adidas Superstar. You can still have some fun with textures with the new Adidas Superstar Jelly Shoes.

There are 4 colours available in total: Purple Tint, Solar Yellow, Vapour Pink and Semi Solar Pink. All of the sneakers are translucent with a sheer matte upper for a frosted effect. This means you can have fun showing off your favourite socks or your bubble tea nails.

The shell-toe sneakers have a chunky rubber outsole, so you won’t have to worry even if you accidentally step into a puddle. Reviewers on the Adidas Singapore website also raved about the comfort levels. One customer said, “Really comfortable and soft so nice to walk in and great quality.” Another commented that they are “Perfect summer shoes! Nice color and shoes are super comfortable!”
The Adidas Superstar Jelly Shoes are retailing for $180 on Adidas Singapore’s website.
Casestudy x Crocs
No stranger to collaborations, Crocs has teamed up with South Korean brand Casestudy on a pair of clogs each for adults and kids.
The adult clogs have a transparent upper, while the rest of the shoe is in white. The words “Casestudy” are in black on the strap. Again, you can switch up your look with coloured socks or go socks-free to show off your pedi.
Each pair of clogs comes with 20 Jibbitz charms so you can customise your look to match your outfit. The designs range from cherries and watermelons to the words “Out of office”.
The Casestudy x Crocs adult clogs retail for 99,900 won (~$115,45). The kids clogs retail for 79,900 won (~S$92.30). The shoes were launched on 15 July and sold out in a flash. However, you can fill in the form on SIVillage’s website to be informed when it is restocked.
