How many pairs of the same Melissa shoes have I taken photos of? I think I'm up to 5! Crazy popular shoes they are. I have a "fake" pair from a shop in Harajuku Tokyo.
I didn't realise when I bought them that they were fake Melissa's though, I just thought they were cool shoes. You can tell because they have an extra plastic strap. They were only $11 and there is actually a funny story about them. We rode our bikes to Harajuku for a day of shopping. We were shopping in Takeshitta Dori and I was so excited to find a pair of shoes that actually fit me (they are a size LL, in Japan shoes come in 3 sizes S, M and L, only very occasionally do you find a LL and normally they won't fit my big size 10 foot anyway but these did, yay!) When we were finished shopping I put the shoes which were in a plastic bag inside my bicycle basket and started to ride home. Half way home I felt a plastic feeling "stick" hit my foot so I stopped and had a look around on the ground. Henry yelled at me to keep riding (he thought I was being lazy and resting, he likes to ride super fast and not stop) so I was like a "plastic stick hit my foot" and he didn't see anything either so we rode home. We didn't even think it could be the shoes! When we got home I realised 1 shoe had fallen out. So we rode back to the spot and couldn't find it (it was very dark) I went to the local police box to report a missing shoe (lol, but seriously people in Japan are very honest so I thought it could have been handed in) They never turned up so I ended up going back to the shop and buying another pair. Luckily they had 1 pair in size LL left. I love the shoes and can't wait till Summer to finally wear them again. I can't believe people are out in Melbourne's Winter in those sandals, my feet would freeze!
