Would You Wear This Childhood Classic Now?

Back in third grade, a pair of lime-green jelly sandals were the cool-girl equivalent of today's PVC pump. If you had the see-through glitter kind, you were basically the rock star of your elementary school. That, and your lunch box likely contained Dunkaroos and Lunchables pizza. Those were the days.
If you're starting to feel a little nostalgic for the plastic footwear of years past, we've got just the cure. These throw-back styles are cropping up at all of our favorite stores this spring, and the temptation is real. So, we rounded up 12 kooky pairs — they come in adult sizes! — that will let you relive your glory days on the playground.
