Its about time that Melissa shoes have made shoes for men. They dont have that great candy smell as the womens shoes but they dont have that terrible smell some of my wifes (non-Melissa) jellies have. I have the black non-flocked. These look great, wear them with or without socks. Today I wore them as dress shoes with a pair of black pants, tomorrow with jeans for more casual. They are a bit tight in the tow box, but not a deal breaker. I also bought a pair of the flocked oxfords but waiting till winter to wear them. I hope that Melissa continues to make mens shoes. Ill buy all of them.
