This Brazilian footwear brand is best known for reimagining plastic jelly shoes and frequently collaborating with high-end designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier. Melissa’s first stateside store adapts the artsy, gallery-inspired interior of the São Paulo flagship, displaying the waterproof, PVC-crafted kicks ($53–$350) on individual pedestals clustered in groups throughout the all-white space. Discover a wide selection of flats, ranging from eye-catching zigzag styles by Gareth Pugh ($123) to basic black ones adorned with grosgrain bows from the Jason Wu collection ($135). House-brand heels, such as mod slingbacks featuring crackle patterns ($79), and boots, including classic oxford styles ($70), will keep your feet stylish and dry in a downpour.
