Being exposed to so many trends and shoe styles, we almost through we've seen it all, yet the creative world of fashion never ceases to amaze us. Brazil-based footwear label Melissa has been on the spotlight lately, so the new line might not seem very different from the Melissa x Forever 21 line. Indeed, the styles are only remotely different, but here comes the fun twist: the new J.Crew x Melissa shoes are actually scented.

Well, scented shoes are definitely a twist from what we might expect and quite a creative one, we might add. Though we know that jelly shoes are typically one of those things you either love or hate, such twists definitely makes one reevaluate the style. The idea is in the beginning stages, considering the fact that only one scent is available. To match the mood of the season, the label has chosen a “tutti fruitti” scent. Intriguing? Definitely. For the moment only two colors are available: a fab trendy coral tone and a versatile navy shade.
