I am talking late 80’s early 90’s . First let me apologize for missing a week. Now back to jelly shoes. Not sandles we had the slip on shoes as kids. While they where not comfortable even with socks we where walking with feet in cased in plastic hard plastic ain’t no jelly in those jelly shoes. I didn’t even want them but ppl kept buying me pairs and commercial directors as well as commercial castors loved when kids wore jelly shoes so mom often put them on me. My Irish dance teachers could always tell if I had been to audition or shoot because I walked a certain way after spent time in them compared to how walked after sneakers or rarity after we practiced in are Irish dance shoes. We practiced in socks a lot yes other dance teachers would cringe. The jelly shoes where painful and if mom forgot the socks I’d be left with shoe marks and exposed skin in warmer weather would be burnt.
