Jelly shoes AIBDC : 0_6464 This object is part of a trial to see if giving specific guidance on research methods makes the game a more successful means of obtaining information about the objects featured. We know they were made in Italy and we have a secure date of 1996 for them. What we want to know is who designed and who manufactured them. Hard to know how to go about finding that out. Perhaps the answer could be to see if an Italian museum of plastics can help. There are several: their details can be found on the web.

Have you seen jelly shoes like this with a small high heal before? Perhaps you can tell us where or just something about what you think of jelly shoes in general. We like human stories.

Thank you James Barton for liking these jelly shoes. I wonder what it is you like about them?

We have the clue that they were made in Italy. Perhaps books on italian fashion might tell us more about them?
