This summer has introduced an interesting fashion predicament: Half the day we're sweltering, the other half we're dodging sudden downpour. Still if we can't find a good store to duck in to, or we just have somewhere to be, we wind up sloshing down the street anyway and our new ballet flats are the worse for it. Leather sandals are just as perilous and any flip flop has that annoying habit of splashing NYC puddle water on to the back of our calves. But it's definitely too hot for rain boots, so what's a girl to wear? Enter the Melissa 'sweet lips' flat, the answer to this sticky situation. The shoe is made from rubber so you don't have to worry about them getting ruined when you're splashing down the street. And when the sun does actually come out, the flat is equally appropriate for warm weather. The bonus? All of Melissa's shoes are made with 100% recyclable material. -- HAYLEY PHELAN
